So. Happy Monday?
I did have the awesome weekend I was hoping for, I had dinner plans Friday, watched Need for Speed Saturday, went for brunch on Sunday (after I ran) and saw Divergent, so it was far busier than my last weekend.
I think the fun (or eating not-so-great food) hit me as I woke up with a migraine this morning and was late for work. Certainly not how I anticipated spending my Monday :/
|Monday||7k easy||7.5k at lunch. Yay|
|Tuesday||Off – Chiropractor||A much needed adjustment 🙂|
|Wednesday||6x800m speed||Done! Total mileage 14.5km|
|Thursday||9k tempo||Nope. I went for a walk at lunch in my work shoes and could feel in it my shins. Oops.|
|Friday||7k easy||My shin was still bothering me so I rested|
|Saturday||10k easy||Alonther day of rest. I had my chiro work on my shin and figured it would be better to ice than run|
|Sunday||16k long||10km. Our weather was crap and my motivation on the treadmill waned after 6.2 miles.|
Total planned mileage: 56km. Total actual mileage: 32km. Not quite what was planned, but double last week. So, yay?
The bad news of this past week is that my shin was still bugging me, the good news is its a different part of my shin and the tendonitis seems to have been cleared up.
I’m obviously still struggling a bit with my training, and our cold and snowy weather (yup. still) isn’t helping with my motivation. I’m even on the fence about running today because of my headache from this morning. I’ll have to see how the rest of my day goes and just take it from there…
Here’s what week 9 looks like…
Total planned mileage: 80km.
Ummmm. Yeah. So things really start to ramp up this week. The first half (9 weeks) of my training program were base building and now it’s really getting into training since there are only *gulp* 9 weeks until my race.
I’m definitely feeling a bit nervous looking at my mileage, especially my long run on Sunday…
Tell me: What was the best part of your weekend?
