Back Into The Swing Of Things

Last week was my "post race week." Which I have read from other runners that it is really hard to get back into the swing of things once you complete something you have been training for for awhile. Yep, last week was that week!

It was my first week back at my gym in nearly 2 weeks. My body still hurt/was being mean and didn't want to work right. But I still did what I set out to do which was do some running and a little something different.

This week is a new beast. No excuses this week. I am getting back to it. Going regularly to the gym will be the best decision I will make! I need to decide, commit, and succeed now because I am in full training mode again! So today cross training like mad. 1 hour on elliptical, (giving my ankle a little rest from Sat) and then walk on the treadmill for I don't know 30 min at least. I do get 2.5 hours of daycare at the gym so we will see what happens. I am trying to figure out my new running schedule now that I have added in that spin class. Normally I run Tuesdays and Thursdays but the spin class is on Thursdays and I don't think I can run after the spin class, I shouldn't be able to. So any advice? Saturday is going to be my long run of 4.5 miles. Goal this week is to be able to run 1.5 or more without stopping. I need to push past that point to be able to just run for longer periods of time.

So here is to a new week of training!!!

QOTD: What is your favorite cross training activity?
