Don't blink. Just run.

Face The Music Friday #75

on May 22, 2015

Friday – 30 min yoga + office workout (shoulder PT + no ruck: 200 squats, 100 push-ups, 50 4-count flutter kicks)
Saturday – Abington Police 5K
Sunday – 30 min yoga
Monday – Rest (Technically a rest day. I did walk a couple of miles with a friend but didn’t track it-probably about 2 miles. I also did shoulder PT.)
Tuesday – 3 miles + 1 hr lifting + office workout (shoulder PT + no ruck: 100 squats)
Wednesday – 30 min yoga + did 1 hr yard work w/ ruck on + office workout (shoulder PT + with ruck: 150 squats, 50 push-ups)
Thursday – 30 min yoga + shoulder PT


This week’s training to me was just meh. I worked as hard as I could, but I should have run yesterday and didn’t because my body is being mean. I’m in pain 24/7 regardless of whether or not I’m working out. Moving around and being active does help, but still…it gets old. I have a virtual race tomorrow that I’m doing with some friends at Fells Reservation in MA for Racing 4 Valor. I get overexcited and inspired by them and I signed up for the half marathon distance, but didn’t take into account that it’s on trails, not road, and I haven’t properly trained for the distance like I did for my first half last year. I’m pretty sure I’ll be dropping down to the 10K, but I’m OK with that (mostly).

Outside of that, we’ll be spending some time with Tara’s family this weekend. They’re moving to VA in a couple of weeks so she’s trying to see them as much as possible while they’re here. I’ll grill, we’ll have a nice fire, even some s’mores. It should be a nice weekend.

While it’s nice to have a long weekend and everything, please remember what Memorial Day is about – those who made the ultimate sacrifice, for us.



I don’t really have a whole lot to say today, so here’s your song for the week.

  1. Nice job this week! I completely understand when you say being active helps your pain but it gets old. I know that feeling all too well! I feel like the most recent injuries I’ve had are the kinds where I can work out, I should stay active, but feeling like crap just sucks the fun out of it! Feel better!

    Have a good weekend with Tara’s family. And best of luck on your half/10k decision.

  3. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! And good job on those workouts even though they were ‘meh’.

  4. I don’t see any rest on that recap, that’s pretty un-meh to me! If that even makes sense. 🙂 Good luck with your race!! Half or 10K, running with friends sounds like fun. Enjoy the views and have a good weekend!

      I ended up doing almost 7 miles with them. We just mostly hiked/rucked it so I had no problem keeping up with them because of that. Then 3 of them went back out and did a second loop. It was really nice up there. Definitely something to remember for another hike.

  5. Hope your trail race goes well today.

  6. We have our annual summer kick-off BBQ every Memorial Day weekend, so I was happy to spend the actual Memorial Day at Arlington National Cemetery. It was a nice way to honor our vets who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
