It's about the long term... right?
My week was good but seemed to fly by. My training went well this week as I logged a couple of really good runs including a shiny new PR at the Bucktown 5K. I also spent some time in the gym working on my strength training. This is still a little odd to me since I'm pretty new to it but I definitely feel good once I do it. Overall I know that the increased mileage and strength training is going to help me in my running.
My coach has also given me some new stretches to do because I've been battling a slightly angry IT band. There is one pose that she wants me to do that has me convinced she thinks that I'm a grasshopper! Oh well... the stretches (or the version that I am able to do) seem to be helping because my IT band doesn't seem quite as angry even though I'm upping my mileage. This is quite a big relief!
How was your week?
