It was a fun week getting back into daily workouts after a few weeks off for my honeymoon. While my runs were slow, I didn’t lose nearly as much fitness as I would have expected over my little hiatus. That was probably helped by the fact that we were walking between 5 and 10 miles most days as we trekked all over Europe!
Anyways, here’s the day-by-day breakdown:
Monday: Thanks to continued jetlag I had no problem getting up at 5:30 and heading to the gym before work. 45-minute treadmill run. Upper body workout and core workout.
Tuesday: Another early morning at the gym for a 45-minute treadmill run, legs workout and core workout.
Wednesday: Rest day.
Thursday: I worked through my lunch today so I could take off running at about 4:15 and catch the last bit of daylight. I put in about 50 chilly minutes along the Mt. Vernon Trail.
Friday: I got in a great 50-minute run today, again along the Mt. Vernon Trail, as I raced against the setting sun! Such a great way to start the weekend.
Saturday: Rest day.
Sunday: One mile road race in Old Town Alexandria – more to come on this, but my unofficial finish time was 7:18.
so cool that you did the one mile road race. i’ve always wanted to do one of those!
It was fun! I’ve done a one mile track race before too and liked that a lot more, but that could also be because I was in way better shape for that one, haha.
