Happy Global Running Day! Well, throwback edition! With all the hoopla of social media and Instagram, Global Running Day exploded! I loved watching and seeing all the runs! A day just to celebrate running…isn’t every day meant to be spent enjoying life and running? But of all the special day holidays, I think this is one that makes sense! Running brings people together. During group runs, people share- people share their day’s, stories, and more. What’s better than a day created to celebrate the shares and community? Brands, run teams, people, and beer were all brought together on Global Running Day.
By being injured and not running, I’ve missed the social time with friends. So why not show up to a group run and enjoy some apple cider and food? Because, really isn’t that what Global Running Day is about? (Bringing people together.)
P.s. I also planned a couple group runs with Lane 9 and Sports Bra Squad on Global Running Day. More to come on this!
Monday: “Easy 30 minute run” turned into a speedy run since I was emotional upset about things.
Tuesday: Speedwork: 2 miles warm up, 4xlight strides, 2 miles@goal pace,3 mins jog, 2x200with 1 min between, 1 mile cooldown.I forgot to turn around so an additional CD mile. Speedwork was so easy! I can definitely PR this 5k!
Thursday: Actually EASY 30 min run. 🙂
Friday: 10 mins easy jog, and 4x light 20 second strides on the 606. Umm, was this even a run, it was so short? haha.
Saturday: F3 5k RACE! Or maybe race 2.8 miles, panic, pause, and then finish? I panicked at mile 2.8; it was like Chicago marathon all over again… Race Recap to come. 🙂
Monday: ~30 min run and November Project Pop-up at Tribune Tower
Tuesday: Speedwork, 2 miles at pace, 6 miles total, Physical Therapy
Wednesday: Rest Day
Thursday: 7 Miles and Strides, Physical Therapy
Friday: November Project
Saturday:2 YOGA classes
Sunday: 2 Run: 7 miles (very cold miles outside) and 5 miles (treadmill), 1 yoga class, JASyoga recovery session, core & strength work, Edge Compression Recovery Boots
And as always, I am doing physical therapy on my own for both my glutes and arm/ shoulder. It was a rough week, but with the Recovery Boots on Sunday I did NOT need a nap after my long run. I repeat, I did NOT nap after my long run, which has almost never ever happened. I may have to join Edge….seems like a real game changer.
