This week was kind of a mess when it came to training. My schedule was off, and I felt really off in all aspects of life (work, home, running, everything.)
Tuesday – rest. My legs weren’t happy after Shred the day before.
Wednesday – 2.1 miles in the rain and thunder (and lightning.) It was not fun.
Thursday – 3 miles in the neighborhood. It was pretty hot and I ran this pretty slow. I actually stopped at one point and sent a work email. I’m serious about my running, apparently.
Friday – 5.75 miles. This run felt really good. I decided to try to get my long run in on Friday, rather than Saturday.
Saturday – 2 miles in the neighborhood and a walk (1 mile.) I also did a ton of yard work and knew I’d pay for it on Sunday.
Sunday – 3 miles….in the neighborhood.
Monday – 2 miles running with the jogging stroller.
I’ve still stuck with most of the TLAM plan regarding my mileage. My race is this Saturday and I’m hoping for the best. I don’t have any half marathons planned after this weekend. I have a 5k or two that I’m considering, but nothing serious. I’m getting burnt out on the longer distances, and I’m ready to sleep in on Saturday mornings. I do have some goals for this weekend, though. I’d really like to break 2:15. I’ve done it before (pre-kiddo days, of course.) My PR for a half marathon is 2:14:19.
