The recap! This week sucked – both in terms of work (SUCK!) and food (I existed on nothing but pizza & nachos & beer for 36 hours) and workouts (there is a lot of fail down there).
Training Goals – 2/8 – 2/14
Monday: weights – FAIL! I was lazy.
Tuesday: Terwilliger run (4.2 miles) – FAIL! I had a blister that made my toe twice as big as usual (it was so bad that I wore flip-flops to a baby shower, and many of you know how I feel about wearing flip flops in public), and it hurt to walk – so I did nothing. Actually – that’s not true. I had a glass of wine. That’s almost the same as running, right?
Wednesday: Waterfront run (4-5 miles)- half FAIL! I did run, but only 2.5 miles (although it was a speedy-ish 2.5 miles).
Thursday: Rest – SUCCESS! Unfortunately.
Friday: Trail run (7-8 miles) + Swim – SUCCESS (more or less). I did run – 7.75 miles on the trails; and I lifted weights. There was no swimming, though 🙁
Saturday: Weights + Bike – half SUCCESS! I didn’t lift, since I had the day before, but I did get on the trainer for a 6.6 mile ride in 30 minutes (.7 miles further than my last 30 minute trainer ride! woo!)
Sunday: Long run (12 miles) – SUCCESS! I ran 12 miles with the Ambitious One (thanks for meeting me), and although I wasn’t quite as fast as I’d planned (I was going for 11 – 11:10 pace, and ended up with 11:25 pace), I am just happy it’s over. I have 3 blood blisters on 2 toes, and my feet are ANGRY!
My goal – 4 runs; 2 weights; 1 swim; 1 bike; stretch after every run; foam roll Tuesday/Friday/Sunday –
Well, I got 3 runs, 1 weights, 0 swims, 1 bike. so – SUCK! I missed three planned workouts. I did stretch after every run, but didn’t foam roll at all. BOO!
Goals – 2/15 – 2/21
Monday: weights + trainer (no work tomorrow, so I should hit this!)
Tuesday: Terwilliger run (4.2 miles w/ the Ambitious One)
Wednesday: swim + track workout
Friday: run and/or weights – I hope. It’s the last day of my current class, and might be intense. If nothing, else, I hope I can get a trainer ride in.
Saturday: hmmm….not sure what’s going to happen here. I’m volunteering out at Hagg Lake, and am planning on bringing my bike for a ride if I have time. Not sure though.
Sunday: long run – 13 miles.
Goal: 3 runs, 2 weights, 1 swim, 1 bike
