Workouts 11/4 – 11/10: a crazy busy week

All week long I felt like I had hardly any workouts under my belt.  Looking back on the week, I really did a pretty good job getting a variety of workouts in, especially with how busy I was, so I think it was just that my stress level required a little more exercise than I made time for ;)

I only ran 6 total miles this week, which is the smallest weekly total I’ve had, by far, in months.  I just haven’t “felt like” running lately…I don’t know what it is, but in place of some of that typical running, I was able to fit in quite a few strength training sessions–and those never fail to make me feel strong.  I’m planning on going to the gym for a decently long run later this morning…crossing my fingers some of that running passion comes back soon!
