This week seemed to go by SO fast! And to be honest, I forgot to record all my activity for this week. I have the miles still on my Garmin but haven't down loaded the stats yet.
Here is what I can remember:
Sunday: Rest after a 13.1 miler the day before.
Monday: Gym day
|A beautiful beginning to March. That will quickly change.|
Tuesday: 3 Mile run. I was going to say "only" 3 miles but hey, 3 miles is 3 miles right?
Thursday: I had a Dr. appointment this day and my Dr. is located right along my running trail. So that meant I was planning on doing a long run when I finished my appointment. I slowly started to rethink my run because my appointment had gone later than expected and I hadn't eaten lunch yet and brought no fuel with me.
|The sky was beautiful and the sun was out but it sure was windy!|
I decided I would do a shorter run instead. As I started off I was met with extreme wind. I considered not running and calling it a day but I realized that this JUST MAY BE the same condition I face in NYC this month so I might as well get use to it. As I started off my body felt extremely frail and I felt like I was running with old lady bones. As I continued, I felt as if I was running through a brick wall. I set my sights on just getting through 3 miles. By the second mile I was pretty warmed up. The temperature wasn't bad and the sun was shining, it was just the dang wind that made things difficult.
I finished my three miles but then quickly sabotaged myself by having a cheeseburger and a Shamrock shake for lunch. Why do I do that to myself????? Just FYI: The small shamrock shake all by itself exceeded the amount of calories I burned on my 3 mile run. Womp womp.
Saturday: I skipped my long run on Saturday but tried to justify it by saying I did two 13.1 mile runs two weekends in a row and that it was okay to skip a run this weekend.
Sunday: Of course I felt guilty for not doing my long run on Saturday so I got up Sunday morning and ran 10 miles on the treadmill. I usually don't run that long on the TM but having one of my favorite movies on TV helped a lot.
Not really sure of my 10 miles counts as my last long run for the week or my first run for the new week? I still plan to do another long run this coming weekend and than that should be it until race day! -M
