Sunday: an hour Pilates reformer class. It was just me, so we had a great one-on-one session.
Monday: 2 quick miles in the rain. I was feeling really, really stressed out, so I grabbed my trainers and off I went. I normally refuse to run in the rain, but I knew the gym would be too packed at that time, so I just went and ran.
Tuesday: Mat Pilates for an hour
Wednesday: 30 minutes on the reformer + close to an hour sports massage.
Thursday: 5K. This was the first run where I can say that I felt really, really good (since the 10K that is). I felt confident, fast (ha!), and I had no pain whatsoever! It was really nice to get out and just run, although I could have done without the headwind on the way back.
Here I am at the halfway point- note the wind!
Friday: Rest day!
Saturday: 5 miles. It was insanely humid (and warm for once)! I felt really slow, like I was running through treacle. I was nowhere as fast as Monday, but as this was a long run, I wasn’t really bothered. My right knee was a bit achy about halfway in, but nothing close to like it was during the 10K. It feels fine now after yesterday’s 22K steps and today’s 16K+ and an hour on the reformer.
Overall, I feel like this was a solid week of training. This coming week is very thesis heavy as I have a first draft due on Friday! (EEEEK!) I’m hoping that I will get it done and still have time to work out. I’m sure it will be doable, if I manage my time well enough.
