So, last week was a four work-out week. Normally this would bum me out, but since it was race week, I will let it slide. And this week (week 12!) is a recovery week, so there’s not too much on my schedule right now. It all depends on how my body feels — and right now it feels SORE.
(TMI moment: I am chafing everywhere. It’s not fun. I need to acquire some Bodyglide for my marathon. And a better sports bra. Any recommendations?!)
Here’s what’s on deck this week:
Monday: REST (Obviously. I can barely walk.)
Tuesday: REST (I have my eye on a lunch time yoga class, but it remains TBD.)
Wednesday: 6k recovery run
Thursday: 10k “as I feel”
Friday: Speedwork – 2km warmup; 3km at 5:25 – 5:35 per km; 2km cool down
Sunday: 22k LSD (Andie wants me to aim for a 5:45 pace when I run. YIKES!!)
I’m on vacation as of Thursday, thanks to a combination of end-of-fiscal vacation days, Easter and a family trip to the Final Four planned! I cannot wait. I’m hoping I can squeeze more yoga (and more sleep) into this schedule.

For sports bras, I swear by Lululemon TaTa Tamer. They are aimed for bustier women and are high support. I haven’t found anything else that uh holds everything in place as well. I like that these go by bra size. They’re a bit pricey but worth it to me. An added bonus is they don’t give you that smooshed uniboob look that many other sports bras tend to.
Oooh, I’ve been meaning to get one of those (and one of their new “Active” bikini suits. They look like they give lots of support). Good to know you approve, I will definitely have to pick one up.
