One word for this week: exhaustion. It was a very busy week that left me with little sleep and in turn caused me to have a sore throat and just feel tired most of the time. I ended up not doing much cross training and instead took an extra day of rest. Thank goodness this recovery week came at the right time.
Ballet went a bit better. I felt more comfortable with what to expect, but still have a lot of work to do.
Today I felt much better. We took a flight to Jefferson City, MO for lunch at the airport. The food was just okay, but the flight was great and it was a new place to see!
When we got back we did our easy run around our neighborhood. I pushed my pace a little to kinda shake things out.
Here is how my recovery week ended up:
T: 6 Miles Easy (Treadmill, 1% incline, 8:34 pace)
W: Bike 6.3 Miles Easy (P1, L4, 16.43 mph), 7 Miles Speedwork (Treadmill, 1% incline, 8:20 pace w/3x1600s @ 7:41 w/800 jogs)
R: Adult Ballet 1 Hour
Sa: 6 Miles Easy (‘Hood, 9:05 pace)
Su: 5.3 Miles Easy (‘Hood, 8:26 pace)
Total Running Miles: 24.3
Up next: Rock and Roll Half Marathon!!
