Hit a bump in the road this week, but I will certainly keep on truckin’ with this training schedule.
Monday = Morning run. If you were following along at home, I dubbed Sunday night “Sugar Sunday.” I was really feeling that when I woke up Monday morning, I felt sluggish and slow and just… ugh. It was pretty cold too, I was under-dressed! 3 miles.
Tuesday = Yoga DVD at home. I say this every time, but I LOVE yoga and need a reminder that I should try it every day. It just feels great. Oh, and for as long as I practice yoga, Happy Baby will always be my favorite pose.
Wednesday = 3 miles. It was my 2nd time visiting Fleet Feet Chicks Night. There were less people there this time, and I had dinner plans right after, so I kept it a short run. Great to talk to people and get to know some more runners. I ended up with a FAST group, and they were all going further than me. Did the last 1.5 on my own, so I slowed down my pace a bit, but still was an ok run. I wasn’t feeling very great all day, but it wasn’t bad.
Weigh In Wednesday 2.15.12: MAINTAIN No change here, so that’s good. Getting close to goal!
Thursday = DOR plus… SICK. 😦
Friday = DOR #2. Another sick day. Congestion, sore throat, not good for running.
Saturday = 5 miles outside. I pulled the trigger, and decided to go ahead and join the CARA Training program again. All night Friday and in to Saturday morning, I was still doubtful of going. I wasn’t feeling great, and it was COLD. But, it’s amazing how spending money can motivate you to get out the door. So, I bundled up and headed off to Montrose Beach. I joined the 12:00 minute group again. It is all new people in the group. I recognized a few faces but not many. As we headed out for the first 1/2 mile, I wasn’t feelin’ it, the first 10 minutes are always the WORST. My chest was tight, and my nose was runny. Blech. However, it turns out that I was going faster than the rest of the group. One of the pacers ran with me and said that we were doing about 11 minutes. 🙂 So, speed is improving. Next week is going to be 6 miles, I’m going to try it with the 11:30 group and see how that goes.
Sunday = 30 minutes on the arc trainer, and weights. WORST upper body strength ever! Gotta work on that next.
