I can't believe we're down to less than 5 weeks before Vegas.
This week was pretty easy.
I really love the structure of having a training schedule.
And I know without a race hanging over my head I would not have the willpower to stick with it.
Week 7 Recap:
This was pretty easy. I popped in my Jillian Michael's DVD and just did it.
Tuesday: Run 4.5
I hit the trail at lunch time from work. My legs felt really strong for a Tuesday. Usually I feel sluggish on Tuesday's. I saw a guy from work on my way back. I said hi, he said nothing. That always makes me mad when people can't be polite.
Wednesday: Run 3
I really tried to focus on not thinking about the short distance. I don't know what it is about my Wednesday runs but they always seem so much longer than they should be.
Thursday: Run 4.5
I rocked this one. Felt awesome. Had the right amount of layered clothes on. I'm now always running in long sleeves midday. Which means since I don't have a ton of long sleeve gear I'm doing more laundry which kind of sucks.
Friday: Rest Day
And rest I did.
Saturday: Cross Training 50 minutes
FAIL. I did no cross training. In fact the husband and I went on a date. I had a delicious Bleu Bacon Burger (I know I know, not good for me) and went to see Footloose. It was awesome!
Sunday: Run 7
I felt strong going into this run. It's a distance PR for me, but I was 100% confident I would complete it with no problem. I ran with my friend Rebecca. It was dark when we started out but lightened up quickly. But it was darn cold the whole time. Like 37 degrees cold. I was shivering when I got home. I don't think that the burger helped my tummy that morning. I definitely felt a tad bit queasy but all was well and all the cookies stayed where they should have. I was a little cold most of the run so next week I will dress warmer for sure. I may have to give my long pants a try.
I seriously have been trying to get this post written all darn week!
