Another week led to another week of training. I have a 5k this coming weekend, but nothing else that I’m officially signed up for.
Tuesday – rest day. Just wasn’t feeling it.
Wednesday – ran 3.55 miles.
Thursday – Killer abs workout + I ran 2.53 miles at lunch. I had only wanted to run about 2 miles. We got a little misdirected and ended up with an extra half of a mile. I felt awful. This was truly a bad, bad run which started when I drank nothing but caffeine in the morning (no water.) Lesson learned. I need to drink more water.
Friday – Ran 3.05 miles. What could be worse than running 2.5 miles dehydrated? Running 3 miles when hyped up on Dayquil.
Saturday – I walked a mile. No other activity.
Sunday – I planned on running. I went outside and I got into my driveway when the sky opened up. Lots of rain + thunder = no running for this girl. So I did a Shred workout (level 3.) We also took a family walk.
Monday – Ran 3.15 miles. Tried to run the Bele Chere 5k course and we got a little turned around. I am hopeful about the race this weekend, though.
I’m not motivated these days. I’m taking “rest” days but my mileage isn’t that high for training for anything big. I have a half marathon in mind, but if I go with the Train Like a Mother “Finish it” plan, I should be on my third week of training. I just. don’t. want. to. do. it. I feel lazy, but I know if I can commit to a schedule I’d be better off.
How are you handling training during the summer? Anyone else in a slump?
