I spent the last week focusing on getting over my back injury and mentally getting over my DNF at last Sunday's Madison Marathon. I actually managed to get in some good cross training workouts.
Monday: rest day (LONG drive back from Beloit, WI - back pain + car ride = torture)
Tuesday: 30 min yoga (plus chiro)
Wednesday: 1000 m. swim
Thursday: 7 mile bike, 15 min yoga
Friday: 2000 m. swim, 1 mile run (plus chiro)
Saturday: 5k race
Sunday: Jillian's 30 day shred (level 2)
Friday's swim was a distance PR for me - I wanted to swim at least a mile, and once I hit the mile mark, I still felt good so I kept swimming until open swim closed. I dried off and headed out into the rain for a quick one mile jog.
Saturday I ran a 5k in Grantsburg, WI. Nothing too noteworthy - after running a super strong first mile in 7:33, I sort of died and finished in 25:46. Sophie ran the kid's race. Her little medal must have given her medal fever, because later while I was putting away laundry, she came in wearing:
Apparently she found my race medals. She also flipped out Saturday morning because she didn't have legit running clothes to wear. I wonder if Nike tempo shorts come in toddler size . . .
I'm looking forward to adding back in some miles this week. One more "limbo" week and the training begins for Twin Citis Marathon.
