Monday 1/11: 4 easy miles on the treadmill, mostly listening to The Weeknd but also a 10 minute Peloton long run warmup.
Tuesday 1/12: 1.6 miles/20 minutes easy on the treadmill (Peloton Hip Hop run with Robin). Current easy pace as per heart rate and Stryd is like 12 minute miles. As I’ve said before, no use getting my ego involved.
Then I got my first Covid vaccine shot (yay!) and my arm was sore that evening and the next morning.
Wednesday 1/13: Rest day. I timed a one-mile walk/run/stop/sprint we did with Herbie and we got it under 19 minutes for once. Girl loves to stop a lot and try to play with other dogs and sniff things.
Thursday 1/14: RowHouse 45 minutes with lots of body weight and 5 pound dumbbells for the arm parts
Friday 1/15: 1.6 miles treadmill to a Peloton run with Becs, plus a 10 minute warmup exercise and 5 minute cool down stretch.
Saturday 1/16: Rest day (unplanned; was going to do strength workout or easy short run but my right hammy was complaining).
Sunday 1/17: 6.3 mile long run, which is my longest since November 1st. I’m now planning to do the PPTC Cherry Tree 10 Mile (virtually) in Central Park mid-February so am trying to build my long runs to that on top of the Stryd 5K plan for early April. I realize that kind of long run could set me up nicely for a spring half marathon, but I’m not sure I’m ready to tackle that mentally or with my weekday runs. I’m also not signing up for any NYRR races for a while and will try to support smaller orgs putting on races, virtual or otherwise. I’m also going to choose not to get any medals or swag for races for a while because I simply have too many. I love that PPTC is letting us do the race only for $15 and then have the $30 option for medal and swag. Honestly, having in-unit separate washer and dryer means I can just always wash my favorite stuff again (Lululemon Fast and Frees, Tracksmith Harrier longsleeves) and am only using 20% or less of my running wardrobe.
