The recap – which honestly is a bit pathetic this week. I have a confession internets – I have a really hard time making myself do anything but whimper and whine and wine when I have PMS. So, even though this week looks a bit pathetic, I think I deserve at least half of a high five for doing as much as I did.
Training Goals – 1/25 – 1/31
Monday: weights – FAIL! Instead I wallowed.
Tuesday: Terwilliger run – SUCCESS! I ran 4.5 miles (not on Terwilliger, but that’s okay) with a 10:07 pace! woo!
Wednesday: Run (3-5 miles) – FAIL! I wallowed some more.
Thursday: Swim – SUCCESS! I had the best swim ever! Yay!
Friday: Trail run (6-7 miles) + Weights – SUCCESS! I did a 6.25 mile trail run (11:13 pace, which if you take out the almost 15 minute mile 4, would’ve been 10:40 pace…stupid 460 ft elevation gain!); I also lifted weights, and my chest was so sore on Saturday! OW!
Saturday: Rest – FAIL! Instead I went for a 4.5 mile walk with the architect around Sun River. It was chilly but nice.
Sunday: Long run (8-9 miles) – FAIL! Seriously – I skipped my long run. I thought about it, but it was so icy in Sun River this morning, and by the time we got back to PDX, it was after 3 – and it was a gorgeous day. I took advantage of the weather to do some much needed yard work – cleaned up the flower beds, planted the last of the bulbs, and helped the architect transplant a pine tree that some idiot planted too close to the house. I spent about 1.25 hours working HARD in the garden…I know that I won’t skip another long run between now and the marathon, so I don’t actually feel too badly about my slightly pathetic week.
Six hours of activity this week!
76 running miles – more than November + December together!
30.6 biking miles – WEAK! BUT, more than last January! (And more than December)
3150 swimming yards – the most since August! I hit my goal of four swims AND I graduated from lessons.
5 strength training sessions – definitely need to do better on this!
25.72 workout hours – more than any month since September, and more than last January!
Pretty good month!
On to next week’s goals:
Training Goals – 2/1 – 2/7
Tuesday: Terwilliger run (4.2 miles)
Wednesday: Run (5 miles)
Thursday: Bike to work (if it’s nice) or swim (if it’s not)
Friday: Trail run (7-8 miles) + Weights (unless I didn’t swim Thursday, then swim)
Saturday: Rest (and by rest, I mean spend 4 hours planting trees)
Sunday: Long run (10 miles)
I did a great job of stretching this week (thanks in part to Jen!) and I want to keep that up. I also need to figure out how to get in more biking. Too many things!
