Non-Running Week 6

Week 6.  Still no running :( Booo.  My legs are aching for some mileage.  No matter what variations of work-outs I do; I still feel like I am being 'lazy' and not working out hard enough.  I don't get that heart pounding, exhausted, blissfulness from anything other than running.  OK, enough bitching - last week recap:  
  • Monday: 30min. bike, 3/4mile lap swim
  • Tuesday: 60min. bike, 1/2mile lap swim, Hypertension Sit-ups
  • Wednesday: 1 Mile Swim
  • Thursday: 60min. bike, 1/2mile lap swim, 12 min abs
  • Friday: 60min. bike, 10min abs
  • Saturday: Rest
  • Sunday: 30min Weights, 1 1/2 hour cardio 

I was checking out the Pace groups for the St. George Marathon on the CLIF Website HERE>>> and they had on offer to register with their site and they send you a free sample box. This is what arrived in mine.  I don't eat the bars; but way excited to try that new flavor 'TROPIC PUNCH' bloks.   
 Have a great week everyone!!


  1. I signed up for the Clif pace thing too! Yeah for freebies! Sorry to hear about the groin pull. Just keep resting and try not to push too hard too soon.

    What's your goal for st. george? (My mom and I are running it too!)

  2. Ooo yum I love clif bloks! I do enjoy the bars too though... Blueberry or anything with PB are my favorites.

    Keep on resting, you will eventually get back to the beloved hobby that running is :)

  3. I want to come in under 4:00. We should all run together!!! :) my PR is 4:03, so I'd love a 3:55 time!!

  4. girl your workouts this week are AWESOME!!!!!! like really tho!
    totally know how you feel tho aboout being injured...cross training doesnt give ya the same feel as a good run!
    ugh! it sucks!

  5. I know what you mean - sweat is great but it's just not the same without running!!

  6. a solid week of cross training girl!
    just hang in there with the "active rest due to an injury" thing..
    you WILL get better and will be back to running before you know it!!

  7. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Bummer about the legs.

    Was that a downhill half marathon you just did? How banged up were your quads after? I have read that downhill is much worse than a flat race because you are resisting so much more.

    Rest up!

  8. Awe you will get better girl. Your post is really inspirational to me because it makes me think about how hard you are working with an injury and isn't the end of the world.

  9. I don't think I'll run with the pacers, kind of had a not so fun experience with them at Ogden. I know my Mom and I are both wanting to come in at 3:55. We'd love to run with you if you'd like.

    You should come to one of runner/blogger meet ups sometime. What part of Utah are you in??

  10. Oh gosh I feel the same about running! Nothing is more satisfying than a nice sweaty run! I can't run right now either so I understand the totally bummed feeling! Stay positive it will be back before you know it!

  11. The pacer at Ogden started out really fast, I assumed at the time that he was doing that so we could stop at the aid stations and walk while we got water and our energy gels. Not the case. He just wasn't super friendly.

    Although, my first year I ran St George, at my 18, I jumped in with the 5:00 pacer and he was awesome... super motivating, nice, engaging, etc.

    So maybe it just depends on the person who's pacing the group.

    And anytime you come up to Utah County, let me know, we can plan a blogger/runner date. :)

  12. I go the shirt at Kohls last year. Hope your groin is feeling better, injuries suck!

  13. For a non running week these workouts are amazing!
    I'm the same as you...running is the only thing that doesn't make me feel lazy.
    Seriously though all the cross training you've been doing rocks :)

  14. Okay, I am so far behind! i didn't have you on my reader but you're on my side bar of my blog now so I dont' miss anymore...SORRY:(:( fill me in...I don't have time to read 6wks back:( sorry AGAIN! I suck don't I? . anyway...what is this no running stuff about?????????
