Happy Monday! Last week was … weird. I pretty much spent 4 days napping but I still got it done.
Monday – Crosstraining
Tuesday – 6K
Wednesday – OFF
Thursday – 10K
Friday – OFF
Saturday – OFF
Sunday – 15k
Like I mentioned above, last week was pretty weird. Monday started off fine, I crosstrained at GoodLife Fitness for 45 minutes (before going for 5lbs of wings… haha).
Tuesday was another 6k on the treadmill between class and work.
Wednesday was when it all started. I woke up and felt exhausted so after I went to class, I went straight back home and napped. I missed my run and couldn’t bring myself to go do my run. Thursday I stayed home from class and slept pretty much the entire day. In the evening after texting my coach, I decided to go try for a run. I did my Wednesday workout: 10K with 3×3 minutes @ 5:25. Surprisingly I managed to get through it. However, I was still exhausted afterwards – I ended up spending Friday and Saturday sleeping…the entire day. I can only assume that it was my body’s way of telling me that I needed to take a break with doing multiple double-a-day work outs.
Luckily, Sunday I was able to get out of bed. I had 15k schedule so I dragged myself out. I had crazy heavy legs the whole time. I could barely lift my legs but my mantra for the day was “you’re tired, not hurt – so keep going.” It took me a lot longer than usual to do the 15K but after spending the last few days in bed, I’m just going to assume it was due to that. It was my first 15K since June so I guess I should be feeling happy that I’m finally hitting longer distances. The walk breaks were just very frustrating. Oh well, a run’s a run and I got it done!
So how was your week? Anyone race or volunteer? Any good news to share?
