After a week off of much needed rest, I slowly start back up this week. But, I took it easy and listened to my body. Honestly, it wasn’t until Friday when the feeling of exhaustion finally went away. I still plan to take it easy in November and focus on running base in December.
Sunday: First workout since IM, which was an easy bike ride of 14.5 miles.
Monday: Weights/core in the morning; 1.500 swim in the evening.
Tuesday: 4 miles @ 8:50 average. My first run since IM. The first mile was in 9:12, and my bones were cracking, and I felt all sorts of aches. But, after a mile, things started to loosen up, and I even managed to do 3* 20 seconds of light strides at the end.
Wednesday: 5 miles easy with my dear friend, Cathy, and some weights in the evening.
Thursday: Rest. Running two consecutive days made me feel exhausted again!
Saturday: 6 miles in 57:00 with my coaching group. My first run back with them since IM, and it was great to be out. It was a beautiful morning, and even though it was only 40, I could wear short sleeves because the sun was so intense, and there was no wind. It was lovely!
Running: 15 miles
Biking: 14.5 miles
Swimming: 1,500 yards
Weights: 90 minutes
