It’s an easy week to recap because I didn’t do anything! The week started off slow, and by Saturday morning the mere thought of having run 13 miles had me almost in tears. When I felt the same way on Sunday morning I knew it just wasn’t meant to be my week. I’m a little disappointed because this was my last chance for a 13 mile long run before the race, but I think I just needed some time off. Hopefully this week (13) I’ve got my energy back and I can get a few solid miles in.
Monday: 1 mile + weights
We met one of Patches’ dog friends on the trail who was injured and cut our run very short to help out. The dog is recovering OK (she had a stroke) but we didn’t feel like running afterwards.
Tuesday: long walk
Spending time with my husband (who has been away a lot) won out over running so we went for a nice family walk to check out some asparagus.
Wednesday: 3 miles + weights
Nothing stood out about today’s run other than it was cooler and windier than the previous days.
Thursday: 4 miles
I was not feeling well, but attributed it to reading on my bus ride home from work. It was cool and blustery, but running did make me feel better.
Another long day at school…
I run because I enjoy it, so if the thought of running drives me to tears, I know I’m not supposed to be out there.
Still feeling under the weather, but not working out gave me time to catch up on all my marking. At least it’s out of the way now!
Weekly Total: 8 miles, 2 strength workouts and 0 yoga classes
My goal this week is just to run my minimum 21 miles a week! Then I can take (another) easy week and then it’s race day!
