Week 3, what to say about thee….. (sorry couldn’t resist) Week 3 was about self care and listening to my body. This training cycle is going great and I am really pushing myself but that also means that I have to listen to my body.
Week 3- Day 1- 1/15- Rest Day
Day 5 of my guy being sick is how I spent my rest day. It wasn’t fun and I felt so bad that there wasn’t more that I could do for him.
Week 3- Day 2- 1/16- Easy Run (30min)
So I was feeling the stress of my little guy being sick for 5 days! So I decided that I would do my cross training this day with a yoga sesh to clean my mind!
Week 3- Day 3- 1/17- Intervals (26 min)
Wednesday was a great day, I got to go to the gym with my Mom. She has severe COPD but is working on being more active, so it was great that she could walk at her speed and I could do my easy run. Plus it gave us 30 minutes of catch up time, which just made my day!
Week 3- Day 4- 1/18- Easy Run (45 min)
Apparently it's my turn to feel icky, no gym for me tonight 😔😔😔

Week 3- Day 5- 1/19- Cross Training
I did an easy yoga session and my hubby treated me to a date night for Friday! As most parents know, this is a great way to end the work week, and a welcomed surprise to a rough week for this Mama.
Week 3- Day 6- 1/20- Hill Repeats (10 min warm up+24 min of hills)
By Day 6 I was back on board and guess what!?!? It was warm enough in the Iowa to run outside (because I am such a weather weenie)! The sky was blue, and the sun was shining. I decided to start the run with a sweatshirt but shed it by the time by warm up was done.
Week 3- Day 7- 1/21- Long Run (80 min)
With the fabulous Midwest weather, I was back in the gym on Sunday for my long run. Busted out 7 miles, which puts me at 40 miles so far for January. (My goal is 45, which keeps me right on track for 520 this year)
So I am going to say that Week 3 of the Garmin Connect Training program was not my best but had good days, and I #beatyesterday a couple of the days. How did your week go?
