It goes roughly like this..
Monday – 3 mile run (easy) with Ashley + interval training
Tuesday – Strength training
Wednesday – 6 mile run
Thursday – Free yoga class at Exhale…I signed up for 7am at the Gramercy location, come join me!
Friday – 12 Miles wooohooo! (who wants to join me!) – I’ll be doing this rain or shine, or pushing it to Monday.
Saturday – Rest
Sunday – Rest or 2 mile recovery run and strength training
This is a rough outline and I may switch up the days depending on weather. What I want to get in for the week though is:
– 3 days of running – 1 interval training, one easy run and one 12 mile run
– 1 Yoga class
– At least one day of strength training
Saturday will definitely have to be a complete rest day because my best friend is getting married and I will be getting my make up done at 8am. Sunday I will most likely be too hungover to do much, but you never know! I’m really hoping the weather holds out and I can get my long run in Friday, but if not Monday it is! I will do it in the rain if it’s light, but not pouring — I’m not trying to get sick here.
For a little extra motivation with the weather getting a little too chilly in the mornings for my taste, I bought a new pair of running crops at Lululemon today. I originally went to Paragon to try and find a less expensive pair of running cropped pants, but none of them fit well, so Lululemon won again! I left the store with the Run: Full Tilt Crop. These pants have an insane amount of pockets, though, which I LOVE. There’s the standard back zippered pocket, 2 small ones in the front waist and 2 ADDITIONAL pocks on the thighs. The thigh pockets are perfect for gel/gu packs and I could potentially even fit my phone in there (although that may not be real comfortable. I have a new Lululemon gear obsession, which may be a strain on my wallet this year…
Oh and one very important task I MUST do everyday this week – water my palm tree 🙂
My Palm Tree’s name is Olive. I bought her on a trip to Florida almost 7 years ago now. I’ve always kept her at my parents house because my old apartments didn’t have enough light to give this lovely lady. Now I have nice big windows with plenty of sun, though, and she’s home sweet home in NYC.
Have a wonderful week!!
QUESTION: What’s on your schedule for the week? Exercise, fun, or mondane tasks! What running gear makes you motivated to go run?!
