Florida Holiday Halfathon Training Recap: Weeks 4 & 5

Hello, hello!

I wish I could say I have a lot to catch up on, but sadly I lacked in the workout/running department these last two weeks. I was out of town for work producing custom TV commercials for our clients and then our industry’s national convention.

I took an early flight home last Monday and had to head straight to the office. I was purely exhausted all last week, I actually accidentally fell asleep at my desk Monday afternoon – oops! It was only a short 5-10 nap before I jolted awake. While trying to recoup I decided to listen to my body and rest when it told me too.

Week of 10/12-10/18:

Monday: Boot camp with Court. Camp 38 kicked off starting with endurance week!

Tuesday: Short two mile run before the madness begins!

Wednesday: Couldn’t attend camp face to face but I was able to do a virtual workout at my hotel gym, and got a mile in on the treadmill.

Thursday: No workout, 14+ hour workday on set.

Friday: No workout 12 hour workday on set again followed up with client dinner.

Saturday: My only day to sleep in, and boy did I! After 10 solid hours, I could have slept longer but we needed to head over to the convention hall to set up our booth.

Sunday: Wanted to sleep in again, but got up and headed down to the gym. 4:3 intervals on the elliptical for 3.1 miles. I was hoping for a run outdoors, but 30 degrees with a feel like of 27 is a tad too cool for this Florida gal!

Beautiful fall weather in Indianapolis…wish i could have had more time to enjoy it!
Miles logged this week: 6.1
