Week 2 recap of the 6 month Running challenge:
Week 2 was rough with all the holiday craziness and nagging sinus infection that seems to have settled in for the entire winter. I got 3 runs and 1 crossfit workout in and only because of this challenge. I have this slight pain still in my calf from the marathon and I’m hoping this complete rest week (week 3) will help.
I love this challenge. It is something to keep me from meandering along and skipping a lot of maintenance runs. I still haven’t nailed down any spring races other than Twisted Ankle but that may be the only one I do. I have some crossfit goals I need to work on and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that what strength I’ve gained is what got me to the finish line. I need to get stronger, especially in my core, back and legs. Any disproportionate strength is not good for my IT band.
This week is a complete rest week. I’m hoping the sickness goes away and my legs get a good break. Looking forward to week 4!
