Workout Recap - Week 2

As I mentioned last week, I am going to try and remember to post a Workout Recap on Sundays so that I can track my progress and workouts. This week I started feeling slightly better (I still am rather phlegmy in my chest and heavy in my lungs) and coughing less, so I tried to get a full week of workouts in. I have a half marathon next weekend though, so I am starting to taper and cut back my mileage to rest up my body for the race. 

Sunday, January 6th - Ran 3 miles, Foam Rolled & Stretched

Monday, January 7th - Elliptical for 60 minutes, Foam Rolled & Stretched

Tuesday, January 8th - Strength Training (abs, back, arms and legs), Foam Rolled & Stretched

Wednesday, January 9th - Long Intervals on the Elliptical for 60 minutes, Foam Rolled & Stretched

Thursday, January 10th - Rest Day, Foam Rolled & Stretched

Friday, January 11th - Ran 5 milesFoam Rolled & Stretched

Saturday, January 12th - Rest Day [I woke up with a really sore right knee - so I took the day to rest, ice and elevate], Foam Rolled & Stretched

I am not quite sure what happened to my knee between my 5 mile run and waking up Saturday morning. Normally I would have tried to push through and probably did my normal 15-20 mile bike ride, but I decided I needed to listen to my body (not to mention, Ryan just got back from Hawaii for a week and was feeling under the weather, so I didn't want to leave him behind). 

Also, I have to say, I am pretty proud of myself for being able to foam roll and stretch every day this week. I'd love to say I will continue it daily, but I don't want to set myself up for disappointment. I am hoping I can continue to stretch and foam roll at least 4-5 days a week. Let's see if I can do it!
