A few days later than I anticipated, but here I am again, recapping last week: three days of heart rate training, plus some yoga! I’m enjoying my run commute home after work – it takes just as long as my shuttle (if not actually less time), but I am way happier when I get home and my run is done for the day. I want to start walking home from work on days that I don’t run home… AND we’ve been talking about getting me a bike so I can bike to and from work! I’m adjusting surprisingly well to not having a car (we’re a one car family), the only times it’s been frustrating has been when I need to schedule a doctor’s appointment during the week. Otherwise, I haven’t had too much trouble!
Monday 4/17: Rest
I made sure to sport my blue and yellow for Marathon Monday (and Patriot’s day) – I streamed the Boston Marathon in the morning while at work. Marathons always make me teary eyed.
Tuesday 4/18: 3.03 mi (52:01) 17:09 min/mi
[W02D2 Intervals: Walk, Z2, 5 minutes. Run easy, Z3, 2 minutes. Repeat 3 times.]
I totally forgot my heart rate monitor strap – so no data for this run.
Wednesday 4/19: 2.41 mi (40:16) 16:45 min/mi
[W02D4 Intervals: Walk, Z2, 5 minutes. Run easy, Z3, 2 minutes.
Repeat 2 times. Repeat 3 times.]
Avg HR: 127 bpm Max HR: 161 bpm Aerobic TE: 2.9 (Maintaining Aerobic Fitness)
Since I didn’t have my heart rate monitor the day before, I decided to repeat the number of intervals from the day before.
Thursday 4/20: We needed to run some errands after work today so rest day for me. Look at how cute this seat grouping is from Lowe’s! I can’t wait to set up our deck for some relaxing this summer!
Friday 4/21: Rest
It was a pretty rainy day (again) – so we just spent the evening inside, cleaning. I did spend a good bit of time foam rolling and stretching after we finished up cleaning.
Saturday 4/22: Spent the morning grocery shopping and working in the yard – so I’m counting all of the raking, bagging, and sledgehammering my workout for the day! We also worked on setting up our “fitness” room – complete with all of our medals and bibs!
Sunday 4/23: 2.98 mile walk (1:04:23) + 60 minute Yin Yoga class
[W02D7-Walk: Walk, Z2, 60 minutes]
