I am actually feeling NOT sore from running 17 miles this weekend! That’s a first! Funny thing is I was rolling…icing…and feeling great after yesterday and then decided to gun it down the stairs too fast only to kind-of hurt my right foot. All is ok now … I was able to run this morning no problem – but it kind of hurts when I wear flats or flip flops. Maybe I get to wear sneakers all week long? Ok!
For today, here’s another weekly recap for our

Week of 10/15/12
I felt great this week despite the fact that I didn’t actually take a ‘rest day.’ With me being bad here and there, food-wise, I felt I needed to work those calories off!
Training: I have been consistent and/or speedier with speedwork and adding in mileage weekly – I wish that Women’s Half was here sooner! (*don’t forget you can enter the code: KATSNF for $10 off the St Petersburg Women’s Half Marathon November 18!)
New Shoes: Have been a Godsend! I should have gotten them earlier, but I will just learn lessons from this time around and be sure to track the mileage on the new Ravennas.
Crosstraining: I’ve been increasing my weights and overall ‘sweatiness’ of my strength training workouts. I make sure to change things up weekly so that I don’t get bored and can alleviate any sort of plateau I may happen to run into. Kettleball/Dumbell squats, burpees, a plethora of pushup variations, shoulder presses, lunges, hollow rocks, planks, and wall sits have been my go-to exercises.
I love step/box jumps and repeated dumbell squats, oh so much!
The mixture of running and crosstraining is becoming more of a routine which means I’m not fighting it with soreness and fatigue as much as I was in the beginning – all awesome signs that it should only get better from here
A big congrats to all who raced/competed this weekend! From swim meets to tris to figure competitions to 5ks and more…a HUGE pat on the back is in order!
