The theme of this week was definitely hey-at-least-I-got-out-there. That’s not to say that it was bad, it was just one of those weeks where you feel like there are a million things going on and it seems fair to claim victory when you manage to lace up your running shoes and get a few miles in. Plus I feel like crap, so that always makes things more complicated than they need to be, you know? I don’t know what I have, but my lungs feel a little constricted after a few miles, so I can’t imagine that I’m really at my best right now.
And now let’s run it down!
Tuesday: 3 miles;
Wednesday: another rest day since I did bag watch (and wrote this while I was at it) for LUNAChix;
Thursday: 60 minutes of yoga and about 6.5 miles;
Friday: 3 miles and starting to feel sick;
Saturday: 3 miles. My training plan called for 6 but I decided to just run what felt good, and keeping in mind that I wanted to be at least a little bit rested for my long run;
Sunday: 10.5 miles. My training plan called for 12, but I think 10.5 while your lungs sort of hurt and you feel slightly nauseous is probably the same thing as 12 miles when you feel fine. So I consider this a win.
It makes me a little sad that my overall ‘mood’ this week on DailyMile is a blah face, but some weeks are like that.
So, what’s in store for this upcoming week? Well, I’m hoping to keep my training on track, and since this is a step back week I think that’s a realistic goal in spite of how I’m feeling physically. I’d also like to focus on getting 5-10 minutes of stretching in after every run since I have really been neglecting to do that lately. I mean, there are lots of things I’ve been neglecting, but I think this is the one I want to focus on first.
