Monday: Back at it. The time off was well worth it and my legs felt back to normal. I enjoyed my run and am excited to get back at it (but not too quickly)!
Actual: 3.1 miles (9:07/mile)
Tuesday: Kept the pace moderate for another day. Trying to be more conservative with recovery these days after the shin thing.
Actual: 3.1 miles (9:10/mile)
Wednesday: The Jayhawk was late getting to the gym (we carpool to work and often use the work gym), so I got some bonus time on the treadmill. I used that time to do a ladder workout and to start to introduce pace back into my runs. It was fun! :)
Actual: 5 miles (8:53/mile)
Thursday: I took a rest day and met up with some of my Atlanta runner friends at Road Runner Sports Ladies Night out. It was sponsored by Brooks and Moving Comfort, and there were lots of snacks and giveaways. We didn't win much in the raffles, but it was great to catch up with everyone!
Girls Gone Wild.Friday: It was a long week and I was tired.
Saturday: On Saturday group run got move to Sunday due to some crazy weather moving through Atlanta that morning. I ended up being lazy and never actually going for a run that day.
Sunday: I met up with a bunch of fellow Atlanta Lady runners and bloggers for a bit of a farewell run for Jesica from Runladylike. She is moving out of town, so went sent her off in the best way we knew how: with a long run and brunch! I ran with some ladies I'd never run with and enjoy what was probably the last of Atlanta's spring (you could feel the humidity building).
Actual: 6.4 miles (10:03/mile)
Amanda, Amy, Jess, and myself (L to R)
L to R: Myself, Jess, Amy, Jesica, Amanda, Elizabeth (Source: Runladylike)I rested a little more than I intended this week. I am currently in between training plans and a little extra rest and relaxation for my legs is probably for the best. Thanks to everyone who chimed in on Friday's post with some of their favorite blogs! Always great to add to the reading list and see what inspires others!
How was your week? How much time did you like to take off after races?
