Samantha over at The Kelley Eight, frequently blogs on Saturdays about her exercising report for the week. I am always encouraged when I read about other busy mothers making time for exercise, and I also love to celebrate with them their accomplishments. So today, I will share my exercising for the week.
But first, I must share that this week has not been the best--exercise wise for me. I am short 15 miles this week. 15 miles! It's ok though. I will begin again on Monday, and I will get all of my miles in next week. (In the running world, new weeks begin on Mondays.)
Monday: Rest day. I was super sore after Sunday night's CrossFit workout which included 5 quarter mile sprints.
Tuesday: Ran 3 miles followed by a CrossFit workout.
Wednesday: Ran 6 miles.
Thursday: Ran 2 miles followed by a CrossFit workout. This one included 50 box jumps. I have mastered the box jump! But my knee was hurting a little bit yesterday....
Friday: Planned to run 14 miles at 6:15 AM, but one of my running partners woke up with a high fever and the other one (Lynn) is in New York City! With her husband Kelly. So I never ran yesterday. I just couldn't motivate myself to run 14 miles on the treadmill. I began working on my school stuff instead.
Saturday: That's today! I have considered running my long run on the treadmill.....but I have talked myself out of it! I do not want to spend 2.5-3 hours on the treadmill today. Instead, I have planned a marathon school planning session! So that leaves Sunday.....
Sunday: Crossfit is planned for tomorrow night with our group. It may or may not include a little bit of running, and I may or may not run an extra mile or two for a warm up or cool down. Bottom line: I was supposed to run 26 miles this week, and so far I have run only 11.
Some weeks are like that.
Next week's running mileage is 28. I will get those miles in. Check back next Saturday to see if I actually did!
