So... after Tuesday night's Track Attack...
Wednesday - 1441
I got up and did my 2 mile run. I was feeling pretty tired from Track the night before
7:53 - 7:33
Then the workout was a lot of pilate like moves. Flutter kicks, V-Ups, planks etc., It didn't feel like a true strength training day, but it was pretty intense at times!
Thursday - Easy run 8 Miles
I started out at Ballast Point and went 4 out and 4 back. Felt good, but still not back to my normal running self.
Friday - Easy run 9 Miles
The plan was to do 10 miles. For whatever reason I wasn't feeling great. I felt worn down and didn't even want to run. I stopped at 2.5 stretched the legs and kept going. I made it to the hospital, went to the bathroom and started back. I stopped at mile 8 and walked some and made it back. Only 9 miles.
Saturday - 4 Miles
I was planning on taking Saturday off, but woke up and needed some fresh air. I didn't start until after 10 am . It was hot. The pace was actually faster than expected. 7:46 avg.
After the track practice my training went down hill fast. I sometimes wonder if stresses in life hinders my running. Some people say that stress brings out the beast in them. I on the other hand just get defeated.
The goal this week is to move on, smile and not stress about things that are out my control!!
