Crappy. Is the perfect word to describe my 8.5 mile run this morning. It was one of those mornings when I thought I did everything right to prepare for a 10 mile run but just couldn’t do it. I went to bed early, had a light breakfast 2 hours before my run, had a couple “Shot Bloks”, AND it was raining which is my ideal running weather!
(Post-run: soaking wet with extra messy hair :()
But I still felt like crap. Maybe it’s because I ran the first 4 miles with Mike and we went too fast? Or because I had app’s late yesterday afternoon and then only had bread and olive oil for dinner since I wasn’t hungry? Possibly.
Or that I had a couple of glasses of wine yesterday and was therefore dehydrated?
It doesn’t matter what the reason was, I still need to snap out of it and complete a couple hard runs and speed workouts before my half marathon. I have less than 2 weeks to get faster and stronger!!
And in doing so, here’s my workout plan for this week (based on my training program):
- Monday: Run 60 minutes
- Tuesday: Boxing. I finally gave in (that happens after a couple drinks) and agreed to attend a class w/ my friend. I hope I like it!
- Wednesday: Run+speed 50 minutes
- Thursday: Cross-train (elliptical plus strength training)
- Friday: Run 40 minutes
- Saturday: Run race pace for 8 miles
- Sunday: Off
Yup, I have 6 workouts scheduled which probably won’t happen but a girl can dream! 😀
Time to watch the Pat’s game!! Enjoy your Sunday!
