Sunday’s Weekly Workout Roundup

Happy Sunday Everyone!

I am actually feeling NOT sore from running 17 miles this weekend! That’s a first! Funny thing is I was rolling…icing…and feeling great after yesterday and then decided to gun it down the stairs too fast only to kind-of hurt my right foot. All is ok now … I was able to run this morning no problem – but it kind of hurts when I wear flats or flip flops. Maybe I get to wear sneakers all week long? Ok!

For today, here’s another weekly recap for our

Weekly Workouts Roundup

Week of 10/15/12

I felt great this week despite the fact that I didn’t actually take a ‘rest day.’ With me being bad here and there, food-wise, I felt I needed to work those calories off!
Training: I have been consistent and/or speedier with speedwork and adding in mileage weekly – I wish that Women’s Half was here sooner! (*don’t forget you can enter the code: KATSNF for $10 off the St Petersburg Women’s Half Marathon November 18!)
New Shoes: Have been a Godsend! I should have gotten them earlier, but I will just learn lessons from this time around and be sure to track the mileage on the new Ravennas.
Crosstraining: I’ve been increasing my weights and overall ‘sweatiness’ of my strength training workouts. I make sure to change things up weekly so that I don’t get bored and can alleviate any sort of plateau I may happen to run into. Kettleball/Dumbell squats, burpees, a plethora of pushup variations, shoulder presses, lunges, hollow rocks, planks, and wall sits have been my go-to exercises.
I love step/box jumps and repeated dumbell squats, oh so much!
The mixture of running and crosstraining is becoming more of a routine which means I’m not fighting it with soreness and fatigue as much as I was in the beginning – all awesome signs that it should only get better from here 😉
A big congrats to all who raced/competed this weekend! From swim meets to tris to figure competitions to 5ks and more…a HUGE pat on the back is in order!

    Isn’t it funny how you can run really crazy long distances and not feel a tinge of pain and then shorter distances like 6 miles can hurt?

    Thanks for hosting!
