Weekly Training Log – Week of October 13th

Its been quite awhile since I haven’t been “in training” for a race.  Since the end of April to be exact.  My body and mind were definitely ready for the break, and I allowed myself the rest that I needed this past week.

Despite it being my first week in a long time of not being in training, it was still a busy and eventful week.  With this past week being Homecoming Week at school, lots of extra activities at school kept me super busy.  And if you didn’t see on my Facebook page or on Instgram Saturday morning, I revealed the secret activity that I’ve been up to for the past two weeks.

I was a part of my school’s flash mob dance, which we performed on Friday during our Pep Rally.  Although my participation in the dance caused me to be more active the week of Army Ten Miler than I had wanted to, it was definitely worth it.

Some of you may be wondering why I kept it a secret on the blog.  The goal was for the student body to be surprised with the dance, and since a couple of my students have told me that they (and some of their parents) turn to my blog for fitness inspiration, I knew that I needed to keep things quiet on here.  If you want to check out the dance, be sure to head over to my Facebook page to see the video.

QOTD: When was the last time that you weren’t in training for a race?  How did you handle it physically and mentally?

    The flash mob performance sounds so fun! I was mentioning to my husband last week that I was excited about Richmond but also looking forward to when the half was over so I could just spend some weeks not training for anything specific and running for fun.

    How fun-the Flash Mob looks awesome!
    I wasnt in training from April-June and it worked out well because I ended up getting my appendix out. I am in training for at least the next year or so which is so crazy to think about!
