Training for Being Tired
I know you guys cried yourself a river when I didn’t post my training log on my blog last Sunday…I’m not going to bore you with two weeks ago (therefore…so if I didn’t blog it, it doesn’t happen in real life?).
This week was a VERY intense week for me running wise. With three races, my runs were either fast (because I was racing) or very slow and that is quite fine with me.
|Monday:||AM: 2 hours elliptical…I had thought about running but since I had Beat the Ball at 11:30pm, just kept my legs loose. (I also wasn’t sure I wanted to be above 70 miles this week)|
|PM: Beat the Ball 5k total miles: 6|
|Tuesday:||Hair of the Dog 5k (19:32…recap to come) total miles: 12.4|
|Wednesday:||AM: 8.3 incredibly easy and painful (because I was sore)|
|Thursday:||AM: 6 miles/PM: 3.1 miles with my 8 year old running friend|
|Friday:||8.1 miles with Theresa (a local friend of mine)|
|Saturday:||Distance Series 20k (1:27…recap also to come)Total miles 16|
|Sunday:||Shakeout 8 miles easy|
Moving on to my core whore New Year’s Resolution. I started off the year doing ab rolls…which was stupid. I made myself sore on New Year’s by doing 16 (talk about gun ho…). Therefore the rest of the week till now I didn’t want to perpetuate the soreness and be hella sore during my 20k…but I still did some sort of corework so I’m still making my resolution. I just know that the ab roller machine will always kill me. I feel like I’m wasting my time honestly, so I am thinking either I need to commit myself to this or not half ass it. I’ve been in a slug the last week or so (due to my blood sugars) and it’s taking a real toll on me mentally and physically. I’m debating doing a post about that, but I haven’t really decided.
|Jan 1||16 Ab rolls|
|3||20 crunches and 30 bicycle crunches|
Questions for you:
1. Best workout of the week?
2. What is your favorite core exercise that doesn’t involve any machines? (I can probably guess what 95% if responses will be).
