This was recovery week 2, post marathon. I’ve been taking it easy and am starting to get lazy lol. Sleep is good. I’m not following a schedule since I haven’t signed up for any races for the rest of the year. I plan to pick it up this week. But here’s what I did last week:
Wednesday – Ran 3 morning miles before work.Also, did airplanes with my little guy as well as got in our best bird dog for the #BOSUChallenge. Thursday – Rest Day. It was #FitFamily plank day for the #BOSUChallenge. This is how we planked it out.
It was an okay week. It was fun doing the #FitFamily #BOSUchallenge. The kiddos did great! 🙂 How’d your week go? Hope you have a fantastic week!
This was recovery week after the marathon. If you missed my recap of my first marathon, you can read it HERE. Boy was I stiff on Monday! My legs were definitely feeling it at the joints and I was walking funny. I’m glad it only lasted a day. I probably should have followed some sort of recovery plan but here’s what I did last week:
Monday – Just walked/waddled and took it easy.I did get a #JumpJoyMonday in for the #SweatPink BOSU challenge lol. Tuesday – I did a few minutes of cycling.
Then did some tricep dips for #TricepTuesday. Wednesday – I did some planking for the #SweatPink BOSU challenge. I was side planking and my little guy had something else in mind. He’s like do this and I was like, ok lol.
In the evening I did some easy cycling. Thursday – I decided to do some yoga and did P90X3’s Yoga.
Friday – First run after the marathon, 3 treadmill miles. Saturday – Rest Day
Sunday – Rest Day
It’s been an easy recovery week. I don’t have any races scheduled for the rest of the year but am thinking of signing up for a holiday run or something. It’s a bit weird not having a schedule to follow, which I was so accustomed to with marathon training. But I just found a marathon recovery plan from Hal Higdon that I might use as a guide:
