Training recap week of 4/13 (Pixie Dust Challenge Week 15)

Ummm, where has time gone?  These past couple of weeks have gone by crazy fast and I have so much to do, but can't see to get it all done.  This past weekend (while fun) was super busy and wasn't really able to relax (which I probably should have done).

I took my runs easy all week and delayed cross training until the end as my legs were really tired from Raleigh.  I was sore until Wednesday and even on my long run on Saturday my legs were still tired.  I didn't want to skip my cross training (or skip a planned Wednesday speed session), but I decided that it wasn't worth it to do them and delay my recovery. 

I also totally feel off the wagon on my planks and sleek arms challenge.  I am going to pick up the arms challenge this week.

  1. It's always best to give yourself some extra recovery when you need it. Sometimes, I feel even more in shape after a few days off. :)

    1. Definitely. I felt so much better for skipping those days even though Type A Sarah hates skipping workouts!
