Wellness Wednesday...Ep. 13

Happy Wednesday!  I'm so glad that this week has hit the half way mark!  Tomorrow is my last day for the week, so I'm looking forward to some me time in the sewing room.  Anyways...on to a recap of the past week's fitness plan.  Here goes:
  • Wednesday: 2-3 mile run rest
  • Thursday: yoga 2.75 mile run plus 1 hour yoga class
  • Friday: 3 mile run rest
  • Saturday: bike or rest rest
  • Sunday: 3-4 mile run 3.7 mile run
  • Monday: rest rest
  • Tuesday: yoga (and maybe a run) 3.2 mile run (treadmill) and 1 hour yoga class
Fairly happy with how the week went, made adjustments as needed as I went along.  I changed up the running plan a bit, but it worked out for the best, because after my run on Sunday I was already looking forward to the next one!  I've had to move my weekday runs to the treadmill, mainly because the weather is starting to turn to the warm here, and I'm really not conditioned for that right now.  I plan on keeping the weekend run outdoors, but during the week to aim for the treadmill (unless we have a cool front come through).  Additionally after much thought, I'm just sticking to my previous training plan, with some modifications of course!  I use this app on my phone to help me plan out my runs, but I've not been so good with following through on the cross training days.  Also the app has on the schedule 2 running days in a row, and I just can't do that.  My body does not like running back to back.  All of this is ok, and makes me glad that I feel comfortable enough to adjust the training plan to suit my needs.  With the addition of yoga to my weekly plans, I really feel that I am getting some cross training benefit from it plus I'm getting in some good stretching!  I still would prefer to add the bike at least once a week, but this all happens one day at a time!  And now on to this week's plan:
  • Wednesday: rest
  • Thursday: 3 mile run and yoga
  • Friday: bike
  • Saturday: 4 mile run
  • Sunday: rest
  • Monday: yoga
  • Tuesday: 3 mile run and yoga
For the month of May my yoga studio is adding in a new Yoga Barre class on Monday's, and I'm really excited to try it out!  I'll talk more about the yoga classes I've been taking next week.  Until then, hope you have a great week!
