This past week I was suffering from vacation hangover. I remember when I started this blog I was talking about needing a "recovery week" from a vacation & this past week was exactly that. Between me being lazy & the boys not cooperating, I didn't get in near enough training walks this week.
And I learned something...I need those training walks for the long weekend walks. I did my 10 mile walk on Sat with my MIT group & I was in pain! It was probably the hardest walk I have done. Now it was also my first double digit walk (woot!) so I'm sure that was part of it, but I could feel it in my legs & they were tired. I am recommitted to the training now, I will do whatever I have to do to get my walks in during the week for the next 5 weeks.
I am very proud to say that I am keeping up on my plank a day challenge though, I did them every day this week. And today I made it for 1:00 in each position! That's TWICE as long as I could do them only 17 days ago. I plan to continue this even after Sept is over. I'm thinking of adding an additional strength training thing next month, any suggestions??
Here's what I managed to do this week:
Mon, 9/10 - rest day
Tues, 9/11 - rest day
Weds, 9/12 - rest day
Thurs, 9/13 - 4 miles at Blendon Woods
Fri, 9/14 - rest day
Sat, 9/15 - 10 miles in Westerville with MIT
Sun, 9/16 - rest day
