This week could be summed up in 1 word - adapt.
Normally my long run is on Friday, but this week I had to switch it up. Friday morning we had to go to the Riverside Court House to see our best friends finalize the adoption of their fourth child! We couldn't have been more thrilled to celebrate this day with them (but I knew I wasn't going to be able to get in 18 miles along with the celebrations, so I swapped it with my Saturday run).
|Proof that I am not ALWAYS wearing running clothes ;)|
Also, like I mentioned last week, Ryan has been doing some long runs on Sundays, so instead of my standard rest day, I end up logging some mileage with him. Sunday he had 10 miles on the schedule, but had to listen to his body and we finished with 5. With that being said though, I haven't technically had a rest day in a couple weeks, so Thursday I finally made myself STOP! My legs had been tired and with a long run coming up I wanted to give them a day to recover. Although I tend to "feel" lazy on rest days, it was MUCH NEEDED! [PS Talking about recovery, have you entered my GIVEAWAY for a Moji Mini Massager yet?!]
How were your workouts this past week?
