For those of you that missed it, my half marathon/5k races came and went! Here is a recap of how they went last weekend.
Spoiler alert – I had a great time!
So, that meant this week I was going to do whatever I wanted. Sleep in? Sure, why not. Run a little? Yes! I didn’t have any plans, and it felt GREAT. Here’s what the week entailed:
Sunday – 13.1 – Cleveland Half Marathon. Actually, my Garmin had me at almost 13.5 so that’s what I’m going with.
Monday – 2.33 miles outside. I was TIGHT but wanted to get in a few miles to keep my legs moving. I also had been coming down with a slight cold, and knew the run would help me feel a little better. It did!
Tuesday – 3.19 miles and felt better already!
Wednesday – 3.37 miles
Thursday – 4 miles
Friday – 3.81 miles – I somehow didn’t set my alarm and woke up an hour later than usual! Luckily, I was working from home and didn’t have to wake up my kids early for school (yay for summer!) so I was able to sneak in a short run before anyone woke up.
Saturday – 3.39 miles run and a 2ish mile walk with the kids to breakfast
Total: 33.62 miles
Some questions for you:
- How long do you take off after running a half marathon?
- Do you get to “sleep in” in the summer?
