By week 4, I am coming to terms with the fact that as someone with a full time job, 2 kids and a hubby, that my training is fluid. Things come up, and I just adjust and do the very best that I can.
Week 4- Day 1- 1/22- Rest Day
This was a big day for me, 11 years sober. So I had a cupcake and enjoyed my day! You can check out my full #recovery post here.
Week 4- Day 2- 1/23- Easy Run (40 min)
My day got completely crazy, I didn’t have time for a full 40 mins. I did a quick mile, so that I got some movement and had to run home.
Week 4- Day 3- 1/24- Intervals (5 min Run + 1:15 Rest X4)
Guess who got to the gym and found out that she forgot her shoes! This girl. Which means no run.
Week 4- Day 4- 1/25- Easy Run (30 min)
So instead of my easy run, I did my intervals from the day before. These really work me, and seemed like the workout that I should not miss. Plus, I got some pretty new shoes!!
Today's run is brought to you by the color pink!!! New shoes felt amazing, did 3 miles of intervals. pic.twitter.com/qHfXCLkVUk

Week 4- Day 5- 1/26- Cross Training
I did an easy yoga session and worked on some stretching. My hips and knees had been really tight all week.
Week 4- Day 6- 1/27- Fartlek (40 min)
I decided to mix my Fartlek with some hills since I missed a full workout. Holy moly, this workout kicked my butt. But it felt great the whole time.
Week 4- Day 7- 1/28- Long Run (45 min)
This week’s long run was only 45 minutes. It starts to really ramp up next week. I tried out some new great and was really happy with it, click on the IG photo to see what companies that I tried out. I also tried a hydro massage for the first time and really liked it.
Week 4 of the Garmin Connect Training program was about learning to accept what I cannot change. How did your week go?
