The beginning of the week started off great. I was anxious to get back in the gym to work on my pipes. However, Thursday (7 miles) and Saturday (8 miles) were really off days for me...I'm not sure what made them so craptastic, but hopefully that's the last of them and I can put that behind me. As my BFF told me the other day, everyone has off days. She's right.
And my week ahead:
I'm back! This mornings run was great...no GI issues, no heavy legs and my ass wasn't sore from my ride yesterday. Mentally I was 100%...I think that's my biggest struggle at times. This week I'm looking forward to Thursday's workouts. I'm meeting a friend at The Boulder's Resort and Spa courtesy of a client and taking a few classes there (following by lunch and the pool). Perks of the job I suppose! However, it is the first week I'll be doubling up on runs in preparation for The Ragnar Relay....which I've never done before. Hopefully I make it! My mileage is much higher that the week before, which is a training no-no, but that's only because I suck and cut my "long" run short by a couple miles on Saturday. If I feel tired on Sunday, I'll skip my 2nd run, or make it a little shorter.
I'm running in my running club's 10K this weekend, should be fun and I hope to have an exciting announcement when I'm done with it!
Back to the grind.
