lazy sunday

week in review (4/13 - 4/19):
total miles: 47.90 (5 easy runs, 2 interval/speed days)
time spent running: ~6 hours 45 minutes
avg hr: 164.85
abs & yoga: 3 ab days, 0 yoga
off days: 0

thanks for all the well-wishes and good-lucks for my sisters. they both ran their entire races and finished strong. my older sister ran about a 31:00, which was (i believe) 2-3 minutes better than when she'd run 3.1 miles on a training day. my younger sister was running with a friend so she said she was holding back a little 'cause her friend is a little slower/less competitive. i think she finished in the 32:00's somewhere. (neither of them told me their exact times but that's ok.) they've both come a long way from not running/exercising regularly and i am so proud of them both.

i said i was going to take it easy today and just do some cross-training. i hopped on the bike for 30 minutes (10 miles) and read most of my may runner's world. i stretched a little, did some core exercises, and decided to go for a light, easy run. i kept it easy but ran longer than the originally planned 30 minutes (not complaining though).

for the first time in a long while, i lounged around the rest of the day. i didn't go anywhere, other than to get food, and took a glorious nap. it was nice to be lazy and not driving somewhere.

sunday (4/19) am run: 5.5 miles, 49:22 (avg pace 8:58), avg hr (150)

  4. Congratulations to your sisters!! Ah yes, I love the lazy Sunday. Had one of those myself!

  5. You certainly earned a "lazy Sunday." 48 total miles run last week? Incredible! Interesting how your "lazy run" is 30 minutes long and that's a 5K time for your sisters (I didn't mean that in a mean way).

  6. I love taking naps. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to take one in some time:(

  7. I love lazy Sunday's! Congrats to your sisters as well!

  8. Lazy Sundays rock! Glad you had a chance to enjoy one.
