RtR Training Week 2


RtR Update

Wrapping up another week of training. So let’s take a look at how things went, shall we?

Monday 3/14:  Strength workout – legs and abs.
Tuesday 3/15:  3 mile run – I just couldn’t bring myself to run in the cold rain so headed to the gym to face the treadmill. I admit that I went into this run with the wrong attitude and it showed. 
Wednesday 3/16:  Rest day! Sports massage – 90 minutes of unknotting muscles.
Thursday 3/17:  T25 Beta – Core Cardio.
Friday 3/18:  Strength work – legs and abs.
Saturday 3/19:  4 miles – This was a hard run. Legs felt heavy and I just had no energy – the heavy winds probably didn’t help. 
Sunday 3/20:  3 miles more.

While I did hit all of my workouts I felt like I was all over the place this week and completely out of rhythm. I’m really not sure how missing one extra hour could have such a big impact but I swear Daylight Saving threw me for a loop at the beginning of the week and I never really caught up! It was one of those weeks that between work and home life, I felt like I was always trying to squeeze a workout in.

This week should be quieter, and hopefully I can settle into more of a groove.

I’m linking up again for the #WeeklyWrap with Holly at HoHo Runs and Tricia at Miss Sippi Piddlin rp_WeeklyWrap-1-300x300.jpg

Ever have a week where you just feel out of sorts? How was your week?



  1. Haha yes! I was completely off last week as well. The time change threw the kids and dogs off so there’s that too. I’d be on the mill as well if there was cold rain in the picture. Ugh.

  2. I know what you mean about not being able to face the cold outdoors again either. I headed for the treadmill this week too. That 90 minute sports massage sounds great!

  4. I hope to get back in the groove myself! I hope we both have better weeks! run on!

  5. I don’t get how that one hour messes everything up either. I was so tired last week!

  6. It seems like the theme of last week was “struggle”. Maybe we can all blame the time change. But, at least you had a glorious 90 minute massage! That would have been the highlight of my week. Hope this week goes better for all of us. Thanks for linking with us Michelle.

  7. Maybe it felt like a tough week for you but you got it done! That’s the way to do it. I’m sure the massage helped too. Hmmm…

  8. I did OK last week but this week I’m struggling – a delayed reaction? I don’t think I’ve ever had a 90 min massage – wow! I hope you are back in the groove this week.

  9. Yeah, I sort of felt that way last week too. Except I really was literally feeling meh for several days, but thankfully it never got worse & is good (knocking on wood).

  10. It’s funny, I’m actually happy that Daylight Savings is back! I hope you’re more in the groove now. Good job getting it in even though it was tough!

    • Thanks Janelle 🙂 I do love the fact that it’s lighter later, but pitch black at 6 am is a bit of a bummer. Glad it won’t last too long.

  11. Michelle, I am still trying to get into the DST swing of things. It seems to make it even more difficult getting up in the mornings and I really don’t normally have that problem so I’m blaming it all on DST! I hope my body gets acclimated soon! Thanks lady for linking up! I hope we both have better weeks!
