End of Week Check-In (And a Question for You All) (Day 35)

This week was a bit of a rough week. While I finished 2/3 runs, I only got in one weight training day. Midterms have seemed to be monopolizing my time, so it’s been really hard to get to the gym and do my thing. I also did an interval run at my neighbourhood track, and I saved my run, (by accident), half way through so my Garmin didn’t record the rest…I just felt like a hot mess this week. That being said, I got a massage, got my hair done AND got a manicure. Maybe this was just a recovery week? Below is the shoulder workout I did:

-Dumbbell Lateral Raise: 12lbs @ 31 reps

-Shoulder Press: 25lbs @ 30 reps

-Reverse Flyes: 60lbs @ 25 reps


And these are the runs I did :

-Interval Run: 2.55mi, 27:50. moving time, 10:55mi/hr (note: auto-pause is fixed, yay!)

-the second run is an interval run, but I paused halfway through so my pace and distance isn’t accurate

A question to you guys: do any of you have a method to planning your strength training days in addition to your running days? I have four strength training days right now: legs, chest and triceps, back and biceps, and shoulders. I think the main issue is that there’s too many weight training days which often leads me to having to stack strength training and running in the same day, (something that a senior university student doesn’t always have the time to do). Any thoughts or suggestions? All are welcome!

  1. I don’t have any tips as I don’t do any real strength training, but maybe switch two of those strength training activities with an activity like swimming that would work multiple muscles? That way, you can still work on your muscles and have more time to rest in between. Good luck!
