This is what the 'smartcoach' at Runners World prescribed for me this week. The following is what I actually did.
Monday: I had a session with the fabulous Tiffany. Weights, etc. I gave up doing any cardio to let Elise sleep in. I did run both Saturday and Sunday, so it seemed reasonable to ditch.
Tuesday: Yoga with the fabulous Lisa.
Wednesday: Five miles, just as I was told. Felt good, though my heart rate was pretty high. Running too fast, dehydration, tired muscles? Who knows. Doesn't matter... I got it done and felt good.
Thursday: Hour long cycle class, 'all-out effort' with lots of sweat. Is there anything more therapeutic?
Friday: Two laps around Lake Harriet. I was shooting for 10min/mile pace and came in a little under (54:51 total... I ran right next to the water and didn't take the extra little jogs the trail sometimes leads you on... may have cut my 6 a wee bit short).
Today's a rest day. Not sure what tomorrow will bring.
