Here are a few things from my week.
I decided on the 5K races I wanted to run for the first part of Summer.
I DID NOT end up choosing the very hilly one for obvious reasons, but my friend did run it again. He came in at 33 or 34 minutes last year and this year he came in at 27 minutes so YAY for him!
I DID decide on the one Relay for Life 5K (which is coming up THIS coming weekend) and the 4th of July 5k. I wanted to do both Relay for Life races but the one conflicts with something else I will be doing.
I finally booked a vacation. It's coming up this month so I'm getting excited.
I started back at my PT gym on Friday afternoon! It was great to see everyone. I got right back into my old lifting routine which was probably a mistake. Instead of picking up right where I left off a few months ago I
should have eased into it . I was SO SORE afterwards. So that pretty much ruined my plans for running Friday night and Saturday. And to tell you the truth I'm still sore today but hoping to at least get a walk in or a short run. I need to step things up if I want to do half decent for the 5k this weekend.
To encourage my return to running this summer, I received this in the mail.
It was a gift from my sister and I love it. It's one of those motivational wraps and I'll for sure be wearing to the Relay for Life 5K this weekend.
Oh, and one more thing. I DID go see the movie "ME before You". It was pretty accurate to the book although I felt like it was a "fast forward" version of the book which was actually okay. It was sad of course but the book had many more "emotional" scenes in it which the movie did not.
And that pretty much wraps up the week. -M
When your legs are sore from lifting do you rest or keep pushing forward in the hopes to get your body use to it?
