Weekly Workout/Training in Review 3/23-29

This past weekend I ran the inaugural Philadelphia LOVE Run Half Marathon (race recap up tomorrow).

I kept my workouts fairly light the week leading up to the half (partially planned + partially feeling a bit lazy) – with runs no longer than 3 miles.

Sunday 3/23 – Rest day / Visited friends and their new babies!

Monday 3/24 – 3 mile run outside

Tuesday 3/25 – Rest day

Wednesday 3/26 – Rest day

Thursday 3/27 – 3 mile run / 60 minute training session 

Friday 3/28 – Rest day

Saturday 3/29 – Rest day / Philly for the LOVE Run / Touristy stuff

I had two highs from last week: Visiting my friends and meeting their new babies (holding babies count as an arm workout, right?) and my 3 mile run outside. It was one of those Mondays in which it was chilly and all I wanted to do was lie in bed after work.  After chatting with one of my friends, I was convinced to go out and run, and I am glad I did. 

I ran from my apartment to the Dupont Circle area and back.  I took a new route towards 23rd/S NW and came across some cool sights!  Places that I never knew existed.  They included: Mitchell Park, Spanish Steps, the Wilson Museum, embassies, and pretty DC architecture.  I even added hills (willingly) to my run!

I will definitely take this route again and add in Mass Ave if I need more mileage (plus the embassies are stunning).  Lows included: general laziness, maybe it was my body telling me to rest.

How was your week?

Do you have a support system to motivate/encourage you when you are not up to working out?
