Workout Day Warm Up

This helps me to turn on my glutes and wake up my calves and body before a hard workout. I need to be as efficient as possible for hard workouts when my form is most likely to break down as I get tired. I also don’t want to be stiff before starting.

5-Minute Foot Reset

I have been working on activating my right glute due to some weakness on that side. However, part of that has been strengthening my right foot. When my right foot collapses my right glute has a hard time engaging and I end up using my right calf and my left side more. Working on balancing that!

7:00AM DRIVE TO TOBACCO TRAIL FOR WORKOUT

Drink Scivation Xtend Free BCAA’s on the way – amino acids with electrolytes to improve recovery.

7:30AM WORKOUT

  • 20 min warm up

  • Drills + strides

  • 3x4mile tempo with 4 min recovery at 5:50-6:00 min pace

  • 1 mile EASY cool down

This was a tough workout! Fall has not yet arrived, and the heat was certainly getting to me but as the temps cool down heading towards Indy I will thank my body for getting through this workout. I wasn’t happy when I finished but sometimes that is just part of training!

10:30AM FOOD + TEAM MEETING AT PURE JUICERY

  • Lots of water & UCAN hydrate + GF chickpea flour waffle with peanut butter, banana, and cocoa nibs – so good and perfect after a hard long-workout.

  • Hanging out and planning for the week with RDP.

12:30PM Rest

Hour-long nap FTW

1:30PM FOOD + JASYOGA FOR RECOVERY

Preventative Medicine for Lower Legs and Feet

This helps workout some tightness felt from a long hard workout.

Booty Lock Mitigation

Need to take care of the glutes and hips after a hard workout!

Post-Workout Recovery

After a long, hard workout my body is tired and needs a Reset. Especially when I know I have a long run the next day. Doing these things prevents injury and makes my runs in the following days that much better. I often do lifting after hard workouts but today my body needed a break so I left it out.

3:30PM CHILL TIME

Netflix binging until dinner

5:30PM DINNER

  • Roasted Salmon with brown rice pasta, spinach, and a creamy dairy free tomato sauce made with cashew cream.

  • The rest of the night was a rare evening out at friend’s house. This included a little wine but lots of water in preparation for Sunday’s 20 miler.

12:00AM BED TIME (AKA LATE NIGHT FOR ME!)

Sleep after a hard workout and before a long run is important so I slept in as much as possible!
