Workouts 10/22 - 10/28
It was taper week and I don't think I've ever appreciated a taper week so much or well.
Monday - I was supposed to do 30 minutes of core work by doing Diane's video. I did 15 minutes while the kids were playing right before bedtime and thought I could do another 10 while they got ready for bed but getting them ready for bed took more than I thought. And then I figured I would finish while the kids were in bed but the puppies never calmed down. So... 15 minutes of core is better than no core.
Tuesday - 2.5 miles in 37 minutes included lots of walking. Walked to warm up, then jogged, then 3 x 5 minutes in zone 3 with 2 minutes between and then walking home.
Wednesday - I was supposed to do the 30 minute Yoga video. I did about 10 minutes and went "you know what? I don't like this" and quit.
Thursday - 2.36 in 32 minutes. Ran at 3:30 and it was 87 and humid out. I'm so ready for the cool weather. Did the warm up, 2 x 5 in zone 3, and came home. Then took the kids out to run .5 miles for their marathon kids.
Friday - Stretching & foam rolling. 35 minutes. Lovely in that "ow" way.
Sunday - Run for the Water 10 miler - 10 miles in 2:05:26. (12:32). More in the race recap post.
All in all a very enjoyable taper week.
