Workouts 4/7 – 4/13

This week was kind of random as far as workouts go, but I was pretty impressed with what I was able to accomplish. Saturday was a beautiful trail run, which you can read more about here. Monday and Tuesday were good days of using my bike for transportation after I got home from work and getting a little sweat on as well. My track workout on Wednesday was my time trial for the upcoming 5k I am running next weekend. I really want to finish under 30 minutes and since the 5k has obstacles, I’m going to have to run fairly fast to meet my goal.

Workouts 2/25 – 3/2

Ah, the dreaded taper week before my half-marathon. I really don’t enjoy taper week for so many reasons, which can be summed up by saying it’s hard to eat the same (or a little less) and run WAY less. I know you’re supposed to feel full of energy, but I just feel so much better when I am exercising more. Anyway, it’s taper week and this race has come up very fast and as usual I don’t feel near prepared enough. My runs on Saturday and Tuesday went very well, so I feel confident that I will have a good race, but I would have liked to have run a lot more training miles before this race.

Workouts 2/4 – 2/10

This week has been a half-way bust for exercise. I started off good for the weekend, but then I went to the chiropractor Monday, which means no exercise for at least a day. In addition, I worked at the rodeo Wednesday night after I worked all day, which means I was being more active but it made my tired and didn’t leave much time or energy for exercise for the rest of the week. On Friday, I finally decided to get off my butt and do something at lunch, but I learned that running during the workday is just not a good option for me. My left foot fell asleep after about 25 minutes of running and I just didn’t feel good running. I was happier when I finished, which must have been a combination of sweating and sunshine.

Workouts 12/10 – 12/17

This week it will be challenging to make time for workouts, but for at least half of it I have a new workout buddy, Danica! She and her fiance/my cousin, J, are visiting San Antonio for an end of semester vacation. I also am heading home to Minnesota mid-week to celebrate an early Christmas with my family.
