But I am indeed beat! And I am trying to remember all the things I did last week that aren't recorded as official mileage because my mileage this week is low. So low that I commented to dear hubby that I have had three bad weeks of running. One week I felt argh. Last week I didn't break 30 miles. This is tough to swallow when I want 40 miles a week but will settle for 35. And here is this week:
|2.5 mile walk start!|
- Monday: 3 miles ran after work with 30 minutes of yoga - Intermediate Flexibility
- Tuesday: 2 miles ran after work with 30 minutes of yoga - Intermediate Strength. I wanted more but work kept calling with runner questions. Work is up there on priorities this week with the final countdown to the Run for the Whales.
- Wednesday: 2.25 miles ran before work at home with 15 minutes of yoga - Beginner Flexibility. I wanted to do something before work but had no desire to leave home yet. This was nice.
- Thursday: 2 miles ran after work with 15 minutes of yoga - Beginner Relaxation. It is beginning to sink into my thick skull that work is crazy busy this week and that I can't focus on mileage. I have too much work to do! The countdown to race day is quickly evaporating!
- Friday: 2 miles ran before work with some speed intervals. It felt nice to challenge my pace. I followed it up with 15 minutes of yoga - Intermediate Combination. Now the untracked fitness starts to kick in full force. At work I moved tons of boxes of shirts, tons of boxes of packets, set up tables, and got packet pick-up set up for the Run for the Whales. The rest of the day, well, I ran up and down the stairs and throughout the office helping last minute registrations, etc. In addition, I worked an extra long day at work. I was beat! But I am not done.
- Saturday: 2.55 miles ran post race with 15 minutes of yoga - Beginner Flexibility. My legs felt
Running a friend in!
- Sunday: I wanted a long run to fill my soul but my body said, give me a break! I ran 3.5 miles in the morning and followed it up with 15 minutes of yoga - Beginner Flexibility. I ended up do a second 3 mile run in the afternoon to get rid of some of my "I haven't run enough grouchies". I am not sure it worked since a 20 mile week with me feeling wiped out is hard to swallow.
Here's to next week!
