The week started off warm, got hot and then ended cold and rainy. It was quite a lot of weather changes and it meant I changed up my running and workouts. Let’s get into it!
Monday, May 13
Kettlebells for a second time at the gym, we'll see if I get as sore as I did last week or not!
Tuesday, May 14
2 miles ~ 23:52 ~ 11:53 min/mile
Even though it was in the mid-70s, running outside felt great with the breeze! I did carry water with me since I wouldn't come across any water fountains and took some sips on my walking breaks.
I did end up cutting this run short at two miles because my calves were tightening up so much. I tried stretching them and they'd be OK for a little bit. Hopefully foam rolling, stretching and compression socks will help out!
Wednesday, May 15
A short, ten minute upper body weights workout followed by walking treadmill hill intervals after work!
Thursday, May 16
2 miles ~ 23:45 ~ 11:51 min/mile
A warm day for sure! My calves cramped less but my legs are swollen from a combination of pregnancy and heat so I opted for just two miles.
Friday, May 17
Mike, Vinnie and I took a walk after work together plus I did a relaxing bedtime yoga flow. It felt so nice to slow it down and just do some simple movements to stretch out my back and hips.
Saturday, May 18
3 miles ~ 35:44 ~ 11:54 min/mile
3 miles on the indoor track at the J. First time running on the indoor track and for a shorter distance, I preferred it to the treadmill!
Sunday, May 19
3 miles ~ 47:36 ~ 11:54 min/mile
Rainy and cold outside so more indoor track miles while Mike played pickleball. But I had negative splits for the first time in a while!
