So, I feel like I have been MIA from the blog lately…and I guess I have! Sorry! I was just on SUCH a high post-half and was riding that feeling for a WHILE! So the question is, what have I been up to since!?!? Well, I thought I’d first start with my fitness regime. Basically, after the Half, I decided that I REALLY wanted to do a good (better) job at maintaining my RUNNING fitness. After Broad Street I really went into a running slump. I was over it. It was the summer, and for me it was too hot to run outside and too boring to run inside. So I took a running hiatus. I did, however, continue to workout via other methods (think: Cybex, Elliptical, Yoga, etc.) but really lost my running “mojo.” SO, when I began training for my first half in September, it was ROUGH. And I promised that I would never “do that” again (aka let myself slip in the running-fitness area). I truly believe that no matter how much physical activity you are doing, you can STILL be in shape but NOT in a “running-way.” Running, for me at least, is a totally different beast. Anyway, with that being said, this has been my workout schedule since the Half Marathon (on Sunday November 21):
Monday 11/22- my legs felt STIFF so I wanted to get some blood into them with a bit of low-impact cardio–> 40 minutes Cybex
Tuesday 11/23- OFF
Wednesday 11/24- 4 mile run by the river (I was feeling it again!) and 60 minutes Yoga (I’m baaaaaack!!!!)
Thursday 11/25- 4 mile WALK (ate turkey hehe)
Friday 11/26- AMAZING 4.5 mile run through the glorious and beautiful Pound Ridge New York (we were up for Thanksgiving to visit the in-laws)
Saturday 11/27- OFF (although I shopped my lil’ bum off so shouldn’t that count?!?!)
Sunday 11/28- 5 mile run through my beautiful City of Brotherly LOVE!
Monday 11/29- 30 minutes Cybex, 45 minute SPIN class (yay!)
Tuesday 11/30- OFF
Wednesday 12/1- 5 mile run by the river– THIS one was BRUTAL! It looked like this:
