Recovery Week 2 after the Vernonia Marathon and Weekly Wrap (4/17-4/23)

Last week was the 2nd week post the Vernonia Marathon. It was a lazy/relaxing week :). Always good to take a break right? I’m going to start picking things up and begin working out with hubby again. We’ll be doing some workout DVDs starting Monday and I’ll still incorporate running to maintain my base. Anyhow, here’s what I did last week:

Monday – Rest day.
Tuesday – Ran 3 easy miles.001 (25)Wednesday – Rest day.
Thursday – Ran 3.1 easy miles.001 (26)
Friday – Ran 6.01 easy miles.001 (27)Saturday – Rest day.
Sunday – Rest day.

Total miles = 12.11 miles. Even though I didn’t run much last week, I still thought about running and what’s next as far as goal races. My next goal race will be CIM in December. I won’t be training for that until July so everything until then will be just for fun. I’m looking forward to taking things easy and just maintaining my aerobic base.

As for the weekend, I went up to the Seattle area to celebrate my mom’s birthday. It’s always great to spend time with family. IMG_0029We also got in a little tennis. It was fun playing again. It’s been so long since I’ve played. Here’s a pic of the kiddos stretching. 🙂IMG_3956How’d your week go? Any races coming up?

  1. A week of relaxing runs and family sounds great! Did you vary your diet to aid recovery? Any extra stretching or yoga? It’s definitely a challenge to take it easy after a big race!


  2. Ah looks like I missed some fun family time! I am looking forward to getting back into tennis after my half this Saturday. It will fun to not have to worry about training for a while. 🙂


  3. The CIM is a great choice for your next race! It’ll be nice to just run for fun for a few months. Enjoy it. Happy Birthday to your Mom! Thanks for linking, Sherry!
