Workouts and Goals: 16 May

Prepare to be amazed… you will see staggeringly low numbers for me across all areas this week. My body had been giving me signals that I needed a rest day, but I was having so much fun I just didn’t listen…the result was it needed lots of rest days!

: 5 minutes complete calm and silence (really important when I’m traveling)
Body: Return to spending some time stretching every day
Spirit: Read something positive each day
Family: Enjoy every moment of my time in KC
- Nada, nothing, zilch, not even a walk to the store

AM: 60 min body pump class taught by my friend Samara!
PM: 60 min walk, 20 min ki-hara

AM: 45 min walk, 10 min run
Lunch: 15 min run, 15 min walk
PM: 10 min run, 5 min stretch

AM: 7.3 mile run, 15 min walk
PM: 20 min weights, 40 min walk, 10 min bike, 10 min stretch

Nada - on a plane all day

AM: 10.15 mile run - 9:30 pace in KC with hills that I haven’t seen in ages!! Loved it! I miss my long runs! Does that make me sound completely nutz?

AM: 6.15 mile run, 40 min walk, 20 min weights, 20 min ki-hara

Run: 27 miles
The rest…are just lower and that’s ok

I miss my long runs too when I have been slacking. Rest is important too - I'm learning the importance of it but still have trouble slowing down

I crave long runs...they are my absolute favorite!

When I don't do long runs for a while, I miss them too! We're all a little bit nuts.

Good job listening to your body and taking some extra rest. I love a long run on a route I haven't run in a while. It's familiar, but you notice lots of new things and changes.

Long runs are my favorite part of training too. I love just taking off and letting my feet & mind wander.

I love my long runs too! I think they're my favorite run of the week!

Looks all good to me. Rest is important, glad your're listening to your body.

It sounds like you know your body and know when to take it easy - nothing wrong with that! Good call.

Char said...

Missing your long run sounds totally normal to me - in fact I feel nuts if I don't have mine.
