Weekly Recap 9/22/14 – 9/28/14

Dopey Challenge Countdown: 3 Weeks Down/15 Weeks To Go

Hey y’all! How was everyone’s weekend? I hope filled with great workouts and fun! Robert and I took a quick trip up to Dallas to visit family and had a great time! I actually finished the final DIY touch to my Wine & Dine half marathon costume…and by ‘I finished’ I definitely mean I watched my mom make it, haha! I am so excited about it. Robert and I will probably do his DIY costume stuff in the next couple weeks so I can show y’all pictures soon!

Before I talk about workouts,  did anyone watched the season premiere of Once Upon a Time last night? It was seriously perfection. I have a feeling this is absolutely going to be my favorite season yet! I don’t want to put any spoilers so I’ll dance around it, but is anyone else ridiculously excited about that object Rumple opened near the end of the episode? Robert and I are thrilled to see where the writers go with that!

Ok, now on to training…as I mentioned on Friday, my 2-mile Airrosti recovery run went really well! It was needed, too, after my runs on Tuesday and Wednesday. I’ll spare you the major details, but they.were.miserable. SO much pain the entire time. Now having two Airrosti appointments under my belt, and my third one scheduled for this upcoming Wednesday I am feeling a lot more optimistic for recovery.

My 6-mile long run on Saturday was up and down, but mostly up. Since we were in Dallas, the weather was an amazing Fall running temperature, and with low humidity! I did 2/1 intervals (run two minutes/walk 1 minute) for the entire time. The bad news is that I felt a lot of discomfort for the majority of the run, but the good news is that is never got to the point of pain where I had to stop an interval. This is a huge improvement from my earlier week’s runs! And while I feel as though I have a better outlook on running intervals than I used to, I still look forward to the day when I can just run without looking at my watch for when to stop and walk!

In addition to my running and Airrosti appointments, I am doing a TON of foam rolling, daily icing (and actual ice baths on appointment days), and stretching as well. Here’s to a very speedy and full recovery!

My workouts this week:

Monday: Yoga + IT Band Stretches + Airrosti Appointment #1 + Foam Rolling

Tuesday: 4.2 Mile Run + IT Band Stretches & Strength Exercises + Foam Rolling

Wednesday: 3.2 Mile Run + Foam Rolling + Stretching

  1. I always tweet out for people not to bother me during OUAT. I'm excited for the season too, not just for the Frozen stuff. From Rumple's object to Regina's mission, all of it.

  2. I'm glad your runs the second half of the week were better and that you had some fall temperature weather! My friend and I just figured out costumes for Jingle Jungle 5k, but still need to work on Wine and Dine. Love that quote too!

  3. So glad your Airrosti appointments are working, I am really hopeful for you that this will be the key to end all problems and get you back on track as you'd like to be and most importantly pain free!!!
    You know when Once Upon a Time first came out I couldn't wait to watch it, and then life happened I got busy and I kept thinking "I'll wait until I have time to watch from the beginning". Well I still haven't seen more than a few glances at episodes. But watching the teasers for it this season I am thinking maybe skip catch up and just start watching, it looks fabulous this season!

  4. I thought of you when I was watching OUAT last night. How are they going to incorporate that hat... I get what its from, but wonder how they'll work it. You know I loved the dance scene :)

  6. I loved OUAT!! I just want to know why they can incorporate Marshmallow but not Olaf?! Ah well! I'm very excited to see where this season goes with the hat and everything else. I obviously also loved the classic Beauty & the Beast scene!

    1. You should watch it from the beginning - it's on Netflix! :0) What did you think of the premiere?

  8. way to go on your training! I watched 1/2 of the episode, but was out running / swimming for the first part - so I really don't know anything lol

  9. Glad the appointments are helping! I haven't watched Once Upon a Time yet but I've heard such great things that I think I may have to start! I'm excited to see pictures of your costume!

    1. Thanks! I highly recommend watching OUAT - all the previous episodes are on Netflix :0)

  10. I am so worried about Regina! My husband laughs at me, because it's not like she's a real person I know, but I don't want to see her lose the growth she's had. I did love the special effects of the object Rumple found. :)

    I'm glad the 6 miles went better! Just take it easy and you'll get back to normal before you know it. Good, pain-free vibes winging your way!

    1. No I totally understand. When Marion came back I was very upset for Regina. She deserves happiness too!

      Thanks Jess!

  11. Hope you continue to feel better. My foam roller and I are on a first name basis and a love/hate relationship :)

    1. Thanks Karen! I love that so many of y'all are OUAT fans! Hopefully all the fans will keep the show around for many seasons :0)

  13. YAY! Glad to hear you're feeling strong/no pain. I know it must be tough to break out of your old running routine, but if intervals are going to get you back to where you were, then it's all worth it! Believe it or not, I've never seen Once Upon a Time...but I feel like it's a show I would very much enjoy, haha. Gotta check it out one of these days!

    1. Very true! Although I asked my Airrosti PT if he thinks I'll ever get to run without intervals and he said most definitely! Woot!

      You have to watch OUAT! Ariel is in a lot of the episodes...she is your favorite, right? :0)

  14. I am a fan of OUAT, but after 2 episodes, I'm scared of it turning into the Frozen show. :/
    Can't wait to see your costumes for Wine & Dine! I'm actually going to visit my mom this weekend- and brining my Avengers costume for her to help me. Haha. :)

    1. Nah, I doubt it'll turn into the Frozen show. My guess is they'll do the Frozen thing for half a season then move on to the next thing!
