I have to say that this was an off week training-wise for me. I'm actually thrilled that I didn't gain weight...and still saw some change in inches. I had some lingering foot pain after last Sunday's Buckeye Classic that caused me to cut out Tuesday's 2 mile run. I still did my strength training and my Mommy Miler's walk that day, but at the end of the walk the foot pain flared and I decided to cut my run.
As a result, on Wednesday I tried my first spinning class ever to limit the flexing of my foot while still getting a workout in.
At the time, I didn't feel like I'd had a great workout for some silly reason. The bike felt awkward and the seat stabbed me in the butt in a rather bad way every time I tried to do the standing parts. Nonetheless, the next morning, my legs were all jello-y. Good thing I didn't have my normal Thursday morning training session because Mark was in Calgary for two days. Really, Avery and I did well just to survive. I did get a sitter for my NOBO run that night - and I needed that break!
Saturday I did my NOBO run at High Banks park (where the Buckeye classic 10K was) and then followed that with a long strength-training session with Adam - both felt great!
|Yes, that's me in the green jacket chatting it up.|
|I'm trying to make more water magically appear by staring at it.|
The highlights of my week, though, were getting my Kelty pack (early Christmas present from my Dad) - which will help with training hikes carrying Avery...
|It kind of looks like some sort of torture device, huh?|
|Wait - what is that bright light?|
This week - with Thanksgiving - I need to add in a few extra workouts. Plus, I'm running a 4 mile race Thanksgiving morning. Time to be back on track!
