After a mostly dreary rainy week, I’m beyond ready to hop on a plane this morning to sunny Mexico! The natural health company I partner with in my health coaching business does two all expense paid trips every year, and I’ve been lucky enough to go to Los Cabos last year and now Playa del Carmen this week. My husband isn’t able to join, but I turned it into a girls week and invited my two oldest friends… I cannot wait to see them and hang out all week!
This was week two post half, and I finally started adding some intensity back in with a speed workout Tuesday and 5k yesterday. More details on that soon! Here’s how the rest of the week looked:
Monday: 30 minute easy spin + Barre class
Tuesday: 8 miles with intervals (2 w/u, 200m x 4, 400m x 4, 200m x 4 all at 6:00 pace and with equal jog recoveries, 2 cool down)
I had no option but to head to the treadmill at the gym for this one, and it was so hot in there!! Other than being overheated and the shock of speed after running 9-10 minute pace, I felt good. The aches of last week seem to have worked themselves out.
Wednesday: 6.25 on trails, 9:12 ave plus push ups/ core
Thursday: 5.5 easy
Saturday: 5k! plus warm up and cool down for 8 total
No meal planning this week as it’s all covered, other than stocking up our house while I’m gone and making a lasagna for the freezer.
Is anyone else beyond ready for sunshine?
Would you rather race a 5k or a marathon?
