I thought I would start doing my training review posts separately from my other posts for better documentation.
This week was better, but still not where I wanted it to be. Last Sunday night I started feeling sick AGAIN! I think my really bad cold migrated to my sinuses and it hit me hard. I got on antibiotics and finally feel BETTER. Like no lingering stuff. Well, except for just being tired. So hopefully training can actually start happening like I want!
Monday: 6 miles on the treadmil @ 8:00 pace. Tried to keep it easy cause I wasn’t feeling good. Followed by an hour of lifting
Tuesday: 6 miles in 8:54 pace. Ran in 3 inches of slush. It hailed on me. There was hurricane wind. AKA miserable run.
Wednesday: AM – 1 mile jog, walk, slip, etc. Attempted to run but everything was pure ICE. All the snow had started melting then it turned cold fast and iced everything. I gave up and went home. PM- 8.5 miles in 8 min pace with Nate’s ISU girls. I ran in a TANK & SHORTS for part of this run…glorious.
Thursday: Didn’t run…super tired in the morning, then Nate didn’t get home till late, I was unmotivated, etc etc. Made me frustrated at myself.
Friday: 7.6 miles @ 8:33. Was tired & sad. Ran slow.
Saturday: 6 miles @ 8:33. Started the day so determined to run 12 to get a total of 40 for the week…ended the day happy I ran at all. Nate had a home meet this weekend and was gone ALL DAY Friday & Saturday and Ames was pushing every button I have + we were at the meet for a long time and it’s just tiring wrangling those 2 kiddos sometimes.
TOTAL: 35 MILES.
I was feeling really discouraged about it and that my miles are still pretty low and slow. BUT the more I thought about it it’s probably a good thing as I was still a little sick. My goal for next week is 45 miles & lifting twice…as Ames always says, “Let’s do it!!” ha 🙂
– till next week-
