A few days late with last week’s recap as I was traveling over the long weekend. A good time for a cutback week, right? Recap:
6 miles easy on the treadmill (1 hour). My left IT band started to make its presence known towards the end, but otherwise nothing to report here.
Quick Strength for Runners Workout 13
30 minutes elliptical (3.5 ish miles).
PM: Reformer Pilates. So freaking hard. I think my abs are still sore.

3 mile easy run.
I had an alumnae council meeting at my high school Wednesday night, which meant I was out of the house from 7:30 AM through 10:00 PM. Getting up Thursday morning was an exercise in how many times can I snooze and still get in a workout. I got everything I planned done, but admittedly I rush the strength workout a bit. I thought about splitting things up and doing my run after work, but I had an early flight Friday morning and needed to pack.
Rest day. Fly to Atlanta! My cousin Sean was being inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame Saturday night, so my parents and I made the trip south for the event. Our flight was at the crack of dawn, which meant we had a lot of time for walking around downtown Atlanta once we arrived.
First stop: Centennial Olympic Park to find the memorial brick my cousins Sean & Bridget purchased for our grandfather.
I had 7 miles on my schedule for the weekend, so what better way to do some sightseeing before getting all dolled up for the event. I have one word to describe this run: hilly. Oh my lord was it hilly.
I stopped a few times to take some pictures, and of course got rained on for a bit around mile 2, but otherwise this was pretty uneventful.
World of Coca-Cola
Center for Civil and Human Rights.

Officially a rest day, but there was lots of walking around again.
So that’s the week in a nutshell. I have 20 miles on the schedule for this week, so my focus is getting through that in one piece. I also have a tempo run, 2 easy runs, 2 strength workouts, and Pilates all in the mix.
Now it’s your turn! How was your week in workouts? Any big accomplishments or setbacks?
