Weekly Goals (April 6 - 12) last week of ITB Rehab

I am excited for all of you that were racing this weekend. I know there are a lot of you. (How lucky Pacific Northwesterners were with the weather this weekend. Awesome. I hope it helped get some serious PR's and I can't wait to hear all the race reports.) And for those of you racing in other parts of the country I know you all rocked your shiz. Can't wait to hear all about it. This week is the last week I will be running off my ITB Rehab schedule. WooHoo. I've been running for time rather than miles which is really different. In a way, its freeing, but It's also little annoying because no matter how fast you run -you can't be done any sooner. The hubbs is STILL not home yet. Grrr. Friday was pushed back to Saturday. Saturday was pushed back to Sunday. Then Sunday got pushed back to tomorrow. Grrr. My workout schedule will be pretty low key. I'll get all my runs in (hopefully), but I will not worry too much about the cross training. If it works out great - if not, no biggie. The hubbs loves swimming so maybe we can do that this week together. Yay for workouts together. He even mentioned going on some runs with me. That would be awesome. Here is the schedule (and I say schedule loosely): Monday: Love on my husband Tuesday: Push - up Challenge*, Run 35 min Wednesday: Swim, Spin, Temp run Thursday: Push-up Challenge, Run 35 min, Yoga Friday: Swim, Spin Saturday: Push-up challenge, Run 40 min w/strides Sunday: Run 55 min *I have been really sucking it up on the push-up challenge gig. I don't know what happened to me. I just lost interest or something. I was up to week three. I am going to try again this week.

Wasn't this weekend the most gorgeous ever! Perfect race weather today.

I saw that you have the Portland marathon on your potential list - I'm pretty sure I'm doing that one, too! YAY! (I am full of happiness & excitement today due to the weather & a 5K PR & the weather.)

So sorry your husband got delayed BUT it is almost tomorrow!! How exciting.

Great week planned. I would really like to try a swim/spin combo at the gym.

So sorry about your man! Geesh!! You'll have to make up for lost time . . .I'm sure it won't be a problem!

And I'm starting the push up challege tomorrow!

DAYUM, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you today, Monday! Today is the day. That would be nice to have him as a workout partner for a while.

Looks like a solid week planned! Have fun.

Sorry about the hub delay - I hope he hurries up & gets home today.

That husband needs to get home!

Good luck with next week's goals.

I've never run for time before, but your observation about how no matter fast you go, you're done any sooner, doesn't necessarily make me want to try it. Plus, I really like logging miles. That's just me.

Good luck on your plan for this week!

Hope your husband is home today!

Sorry about the hubs! Hopefully by now (since it's Tuesday morning) you got lots of lovin!).

Weather has been stellar the last few days!

Your Wednesday schedule makes me tired just thinking about it. Although I'm going to try to run in the AM and swim in the PM on Wednesday, we shall see =).

Pick a race in P-town and you'll get the full support of PB&J'ers (and most likely a spot for a cocktail post run).

I hope your husband finally arrived home. Looks like you have a great week of workouts and some great company for some of them. Running for time is definitely different than running mileage.
