Columbus Marathon Training: Week 16
September 28-October 04, 2015
Monday: DOR – Cooking for a cookbook club at work
Tuesday: Spin class
Wednesday: DOR – I had a meeting that ran past 8:30 so missed my run
Thursday: Dog walk + Yoga DVD – late day at work (and then a DATE NIGHT. FINALLY)
Friday: DOR I stayed in bed all morning, and shopped all afternoon….
Saturday: DOR I spent some very needed quality time relaxing with my boyfriend. Brunch, football and Halloween decorations.
Sunday: After a sleepless night, I woke up late to my group run. Got there and they had headed out for their first 4 miles. I started having some tummy issues and decided that I would be MUCH better suited to go home and crawl back in bed than fight my body and try to get 12 miles in. So that’s what I did.
Am I thrilled with this training week? No, not really. Am I thrilled that I feel rundown and panicked at the same time? No. But I am trying to be intuitive and not beat myself up too much for what I have missed.
As suggested by many, I need a lot more positive thinking as I head in to race week, so I am going to work on that. Another busy week ahead- work conference in Cincinnati followed by a wedding in Cleveland. Home on Monday and back to the grind on Tuesday. Another big work event next Wednesday, and then the next thing you know… Race Day!
