Remember how I was recently talking about how awesome my running has been??
Apparently, I should have knocked on wood. This past week has been an extremely blah week for me running wise.
Lets see what I've been up to:
Tuesday: 5 miles @ 8:35 pace
Wednesday: 9x400s (+ warm up, active recovery, and a cool down) - 5.5 miles total @ 8:35 pace.
Thursday: 3.5 miles @ 8.37 + 20 minutes resistance training
Saturday: 5 miles @ 8:40 + 20 minutes resistance training
Sunday: 11 miles @ 8:54
All of the runs during the week were done on the treadmill because I was recovering from some pretty serious ear infections and thought it best to stay out of the cold.
On Saturday, I couldn't take it anymore.
Those are some pretty serious bags under my eyes. Geez.
I had to run early because I had some clients in the morning at the gym. I also had time to get weight training in and wanted to share it because it was really quick, yet effective:
Split Squats - 15 on each leg
Incline Dumbbell Chest Press - 20 lbs - 12
Cable rotation - 10 on each side - 20 lbs
Single Leg Squat to row - 6 on each leg - 12.5
Seriously, split leg squats hurt so good. My ass has been sore ever since. *That's what she said. *
Today I woke up and decided to go a little heavy on the carbs.
Honey Whole Wheat Pancakes and cinnamon apples.
but it didn't help.
My run was weak.
I was bored and unmotivated and I just wasn't feeling it.
I came home and over analyzed it over my recovery meal. (I seriously just need to understand that this happens and just get out of my head!)
1/2 a grilled pork chop, roasted rosemary potatoes and carrot souffle.
That's a lot of orange in one meal.
Do you get ear infections?
I've had double ear and sinus infections twice in the last month. WTH. My doctor said a humidifier would help, so we'll see if it helps.
How was your running this week?
Do you do split squats or one legged squats?
