Back at it: weekly rundown

I missed the rundown last week, but I did post, if you want to hear about New Year’s resolutions and books. So that leaves me with 3 weeks to recap – I’ll do the earlier two very briefly and a more “normal” rundown of last week.

12/23 – 12/28: 5.6 miles

5.6 Two runs. Traveling, socializing, etc. and didn’t try for any sort of schedule/mileage.

Parents’ neighbor’s horse came to say hello.

12/29 – 1/5: 5.8 miles

Three runs, all short and slow, since I was fighting off a cold most of this week. Kara got to come along on every run, though, so at least someone enjoyed it.

1/6 – 1/12: 17.3 miles

Monday: Strength workout.

Tuesday: 3 miles.

Thursday: 2.2 miles, strength workout.

Saturday: 4 miles, the first 2 point-something with Kara.

Sunday: 8.1 miles. I planned to do a strength workout today (well, sometime this weekend, and only today is left), but I don’t think it’s going to happen. The workouts I’m doing currently are only 25 minutes long, so I thought it would be reasonable to shoot for 3/week, but so far I’ve managed 1/3 weeks. We’ll see if I manage 3 next week, or give up and stick with 2/week.

    So do you run on those snowy trails? I see tham and think “ski” 🙂 I’ve come to look forward to my strength days because I am less stressed for time than when I need to fit in a run or make it to a class, but I only consistently do it once a week, and then count the strength block of Orangetheory and give myself partial credit for the 5 min of arms moves at Cyclebarf.

  7. I usually shoot for 2-3 ST a week, but last week basically there were none (if you don’t count the standing abs). That’s what I needed though, and it’s on the schedule for today. Hopefully it gets done.

    Better to take some reason when you’re feeling under the weather.

    Even though you’re not getting in exactly what you want, you are off to a super strong start! You’re doing great!

  9. I really struggle to get the strength training in, I know it’s good for me and makes me a better runner yada yada but I just can’t find a way to move it up on the list. So I do what I can which is better than none.

  10. Love that your dog is Kara- is she named after Kara Goucher?

  11. I agree with Wendy’s comment – your photos are always so gorgeous! Such natural beauty. Well done on your workouts for 2020, and hope your cold is much better now.

  12. Love those views! I am bad with strength training but I am hoping to do more of it this year. I have some “big” goals this year and I know it will help me get the PRs I want.
