Training: Rest and a 5k
Last week I took Saturday through Thursday off. It was the best thing I did for myself. My body needed a longer break. As I get back to building into running, I’ll slowly build mileage. Last weeks rest was important, but not jumping back into higher mileage is just as important.
Not much to say about not running right? You don’t run, and life goes on. The rest was great, and it allowed me to recharge both mentally and physically.
|Wednesday:||Easy 30 minute walk at Maurice River|
|Friday:||Easy 30 minutes|
|Saturday:||Easy 30 minutes|
|Sunday:||Fathers Day 5k (20:06)|
Friday and Saturday were just easy runs. There wasn’t anything too exciting about it.
Fathers Day 5k:
On Sunday, my husband asked if I wanted to run a 5k. I said not really, but we still went. He hasn’t been running a lot either but wants to get back into shape. The race benefited a charity associated with prostate cancer. Unfortunately, we’ve known a few people with this.
I knew it wouldn’t be a fast time for me, but I decided to run and see where I’m at. The last time I raced a 5k was nearly 2 months ago and the last time I considered myself actively training was around Broad Street. It was definitely hot, but I’m happy with my race.
Posts of the Week:
Next week, I’ll continue easing back into running. I would like to race most weekends, with minimal expectations to get some speed back.
