Weekly Recap 4/19-4/25

Since I sort of got back to running regularly last week, I thought it was time for a weekly recap of my workouts! It may help to be able to look back and see what was working for me, particularly because I felt so good this past week.

weekly recap

Sunday: Rest; foam rolling

Monday: PT Exercises in the morning; 2.8 miles downtown after work and Body Pump; foam rolling

harbor

Tuesday: Last PT session with 4 miles on the Alter-G

Wednesday: 10 minutes elliptical, Body Pump, CXWORX; foam rolling

Thursday: 3 miles and PT exercises; foam rolling

thursday

Friday: 10 minutes elliptical and Body Pump; foam rolling

body pump

Saturday: 4 miles and PT exercises; foam rolling

saturday

 Total: 13.8 miles

This week I am hoping to keep my schedule similar, but I will probably only make it to one body pump class. I am also no longer going to PT so instead of the Alter-G I will probably do a shorter run outside. It all depends on how I feel as the week goes on! I have to come up with a tentative schedule before the week begins so that Rob and I can coordinate getting to and from work, but I can always change things up by doing more strength workouts at home if needed. 

Do you plan your workouts before the week begins or do what you feel like day by day?

How were your workouts last week?

  1. Lately I’ll usually have a sense of what days I’ll run but without a training plan I’ve been leaving the rest up to what I feel like that day! Kind of strange for me but for now it doesn’t make sense to plan a schedule. Still figuring out my route for this morning! Must be a great feeling to be back to running :)

    • It’s always weird to me when I don’t have a training schedule. I usually find myself still keeping a similar plan but just less miles and intensity.

    • That definitely sounds reasonable! I always feel like its nice to go into the week with some kind of a plan.

    • I find that things are way more likely to get in the way of evening workouts, which is why I just prefer to try to get them done in the morning when possible.

    • I definitely thrive off of having a routine, and like you said its helpful to plan when you will fit in the other stuff besides just running!

  2. Its awesome that you’re back to running!

    I’ve started physical therapy and it seems to help quite a bit…luckily I haven’t had to take a break from running, though.

    I usually have a mileage goal for the week and then choose workouts each day based on how I feel. I follow a formula, though…one long run, two mid length runs, and two that are only four or five miles. I’ll usually do one tempo run and one interval workout, and one of the short runs is usually ridiculously slow and easy.

    • Glad to hear you’re noticing some improvements from PT! That weekly plan sounds great.

  3. I know my schedule each week, but it will change things up depending how I feel after work. I go after work because if I’m angry at something that happened, I can deal with the stress by running it out.

    • I do like that aspect of running after work. I’m just more likely to get it done if I do it in the morning:)

  4. I usually just run as much as I can fit into each day as I never know what the next day will hold! But I haven’t been able to run this last week, so I’ve been going to the gym to ride the bike and I have to plan this out more as I need to go when someone else can watch Callum. I woke up at 5:30 this morning to go to the gym while everyone was asleep but Callum woke up at 5:30 (he usually sleeps until 7) so my morning workout is screwed. NOW WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?!?!?!? UGH. I’m grumpy.

    • I think I would fall apart if I ran as much as I wanted each day! Sorry that your workout got messed up- hopefully you can figure out a schedule that will work!

    • Thanks! As nice as it was to have access to the alter-g, I would much rather be running outside.

    • I’ve made a habit of foam rolling every night before bed! I used to keep the foam roller in our living room in our old apartment, but once we moved I was never foam rolling because the workout stuff is in the basement. So now I keep it in our bedroom where there is a carpet and spend a few minutes rolling each night.

  5. Yay! So stoked for you! I usually give myself a mileage goal and at least one specific workout (hills, speed work), but do my runs whenever I can during the week. Every time I try to plan workouts on specific days my week invariably gets derailed. Happy Monday!

  6. :) Makes me smile to see those runs creeping back in on your schedule!

    I do my harder workouts on Tuesdays and Fridays that I plan out on Sundays, if my coaching schedule allows it. Tomorrow I’ll be running with one of the girls on the team that made it to State in the two-mile so that will be a little bit different and I’ll just do a short run in the morning then a workout with her in the afternoon, and then my long runs are typically Sundays, unless we have a meet on Saturday. I would rather run long before we leave for a meet than stand all day and wake up feeling terrible for a long run the next haha.

    I went for a long run with a whole group of guys on Sunday. By the end, my legs were starting to feel toasted haha. I’m such a solo runner, but it was nice to get to run with people for something different :)

    • I can’t imagine how I would feel after running with a group of fast guys! I’m sure I wouldn’t be able to keep up:)

    • I tend to plan my workouts around classes too, since they are only available certain days. It’s helpful to give some structure to the week!

    • That sounds like a great way to plan your workouts! Its probably easier to plan a couple days rather than the whole week.

  7. It’s so wonderful that you are running again with no issues! I’m so happy for you. I typically plan out all my runs for the week ahead of time, but then adjust them if I feel like it :) Last week was tough for me because apparently donating blood is a bigger process than I thought! But, I am starting to see improvements again little by little.

    • It’s pretty crazy how much something like donating blood can affect you! I’m sure you will be back to 100% soon!

  8. So great to hear that you are running again! I usually keep my running schedule from week to week – easy run on Monday, something longer with maybe some tempo miles on Wednesday, easy run on Friday and then a long run on Sat/Sun (usually weather dependent). I like to know what’s in store!
