Week in Review 2.16.15 to 2.22.15

Monday: Warmup then 5 miles at steady state pace and cooldown for a total of 9 miles. Legs after, including walking lunges which crippled me for the next few days.

Tuesday: Easy ski through the woods.

Wednesday: 5.4 mile recovery run plus a few K of skiing at Kingdom Cup.

Thursday: 6.4 mile run in a snowstorm, in Icebugs. This winter thing is getting old.

Friday: Legs totally tired but went for a workout anyway. Warmed up then 5 at tempo, 5 by (2 interval, 1 cruise), 5 at tempo and cooled down for a total of 7. Lifted arms after. Had some guy tell me I was too muscular. Great night.

Saturday: 4 mile recovery run plus 25 minutes on the elliptical for some standing studying.

Sunday: Sat in a chair and studied for 12 hours. Core before bed.

Total Miles: 31.8

1 arm, 1 leg

Moved enough to stay sane this week and that’s about it. With the State Meet on Thursday and the final approach to Step 1, I don’t expect a lot out of this week besides runs as I can grab them and lots of skiing with the team.

Have a great last week of February!!

    Woof. Friday’s run makes me tired just reading about it. Wow. Can I ask: what’s the tempo pace and what’s the cruise pace these days for you? That’s a tough run no matter what pace you tell me. 🙂 Tell that guy in the weight room to back off, buddy! Or you and your muscles will make him sorry. I haven’t gotten that one yet, but I have had a few girlfriends give me grief because they can see my arm muscles through my long sleeve shirt. 🙂 I am just happy to have more these days than the scrawny stick arms I grew up with! Keep on lifting, sister! 🙂

      Friday was 10.0 for I and 8.5 for cruise so 6 and 7:30…i think? For whatever reason, I’m afraid to go much faster than 10 on the treadmill. I just feel so out of control!!! It was brutally hard though. A lot of self talk during the 2 minute sections. As for the muscles, as a fellow member of the stick arms club, I am so proud of my biceps now. Or I was until someone told me they were ugly!

        Haters gonna hate, right? 🙂 Be proud of those biceps!! Nice paces – I hear ya on the faster paces feeling awkward on the treadmill. I have to rest a hand on the treadmill at faster speeds or else I feel like I’m going to fly off the darn thing.

    What’s with people telling us what they think about our bodies? Did we even ASK THEM? UGH drives me crazy. Whether or not you took it as a compliment doesn’t change the fact that he needs to just back off. Drives me nuts! Rawr.

      Totally agree. Im sure it wasnt a compliment given the way he delivered it but again, who ASKED you stranger that doesn’t know me or my goals. Amazing.
