I think I just finished week 15. I guess there are 3 weeks left of an 18 week plan, so yeah. Not much to speak of for this week though. I will say that I was thinking about it, and when we were on vacation we were walking and hiking a ton almost every single day. So it’s not like I was sitting around doing nothing…anyway.
Tuesday – I ran 4 miles. It went okay, considering I hadn’t run in 3 weeks. 42 minutes, 9:20 pace.
Thursday – Ran 8 miles. This was a struggle. I guess I was still recovering from vacation and too much booze. Had a hard time breathing and was super tired after. 1 hour 14 minutes, 9:18 pace. I know I walked a few times when it got to be too hard.
Saturday – Biked for 19.6 miles, 1 hour 33 minutes. This was tough too lol I had planned to go for 2 hours, but I felt like I did enough and I didn’t want to trash my legs for my run on Sunday.
Sunday – Ran 12 miles!! I walked for 30-40 seconds out of each mile, just trying to be careful and hopefully stay pain free. I just went at an easy pace so I wouldn’t get worn out too soon. So far so good! I’m not feeling any ill effects, *knock on wood*. I don’t really want to be doing a run/walk for the marathon, but if it is what I have to do to keep from feeling pain then I’ll do it. 1 hour 57 minutes, 9:46 pace. Not too shabby in spite of all of my walk breaks.
I had my phone with me on today’s run and tried to take some pictures of me running when I was done. Didn’t work out so well lol These were the only ones I ended up actually in the shot. LOL
Guess I will practice some more next time and see what I come up with
So, not a very productive week. But I’m finally feeling better and I’m going to get in my cross training this week. I already paid for another month at the rec center so I’m planning on getting to the pool for running tomorrow. And I’ll be back to riding my bike to work as long as the weather is good.
