Hey there! I hope you all had a great week. Last week I wrote about how I did not feel well. I didn’t get a cold and I feel so much better. Maybe I just needed to rest? I have a race in two weeks and I absolutely cannot get sick.
MONDAY: 4.01 MILES
I don’t remember too much about this run. I just know I did run.
WEDNESDAY: 4.33 miles
I wanted to do 10×400 intervals with 400m recovery. I did 8 and each recovery was less than 1/4 mile. Felt good but got tired towards the end. This rarely happens but my Garmin showed the mileage as the treadmill. I was actually shocked.
THURSDAY: 1.24 MILES
It was not my day at the gym. I wanted to run 4 miles but got to the gym late. I started watching “Narcos Mexico” but honestly could not even get excited about it. Also, I need to wake up earlier since I’ve noticed that it takes me a little bit longer to get out of the house.
Two more weeks till the Publix Atlanta Half Marathon. I am excited but also nervous about it. While I am not 100% ready/trained for it, I am more ready for it than I was for the Detroit Free Press Half Marathon. The goal is to finish it. It will be state #43 for me.
Overall not my best week. Since I didn’t do a long run this weekend, the plan is to do it tomorrow morning. A little off schedule but that is OK. Also, I have an appointment with my agent to see a house so cross your fingers that it goes well.
How was your week? Anyone planning to go to Atlanta to spectate the Olympic Trials and/or run the half or marathon? A friend of mine was planning to go and share the hotel cost but now cannot make it anymore. Let me know if you want to share a room.
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
I hope it goes well with the house viewing! Sounds exciting!
Yes, go for the Atlanta half-marathon, even if you don’t feel properly trained. You can always do walk/run intervals if needed.
Have fun with your long run!
I did not like the house at all. Ugh! I don’t understand how some sellers don’t clean and/or fix it up a little before showing it to potential buyers. Maybe I am too picky but I am looking for a house that needs minimal or no work done to it. I will make sure to have a great experience in Atlanta!
That’s exciting that you are planning to do the half in Atlanta! I think it will be a nice place to run. Hope the house viewing is successful!
I am excited and cannot wait. Ugh, the house viewing did not go well. It needed a lot of work and I am not willing to do that. Oh well, just keep on looking.
Yay, a good week of running! I roll my eyes at my Garmin/treadmill differences and just go by what the treadmill says. State 43 is a big deal. Hope you have a good run today and that the house viewing goes well.
I am the opposite. I go by what my watch says. Before I had a foot pod, I would enter my runs manually on the app. Now I just let it sync to the app.
Sounds like a much better week for you! Onward! Thanks for linking up
Good luck at the half! Should be a fun weekend!
I know! I hope I get a chance to meet you. When are you getting there? I get in Friday morning about 10am and leaving Sunday at 7pm.
Sorry your friend isn’t able to make Atlanta. That’s disappointing. I am sure next week will be a better week for you.
Definitely crossing my fingers for a good showing! Keep us posted!
I am going to cancel my hotel reservation and share a room with another runner that is also going to Atlanta. At least now the hotel cost won’t be too much and I won’t be alone the whole weekend. I don’t mind being alone but sometimes it is nice to have some company.
I think I missed that you are running Atlanta. Even without being fully trained for the half, I’m sure the whole trip will be fun!
I think it will be. Spectating the Olympic Trials is something I’ve been wanting to do so now I get to do that and run a half marathon.
I didn’t know you were doing the Atlanta half. So cool! I have to admit, I am somewhat jealous. I have friends going to the race too. Have fun!
Thanks, Laurie! It should be a fun weekend.
I hope the house is great AND you can find a roomate. Alas I have done GA, plus can’t get away right now anyway (not to mention the airfare would kill me at this late date!).
I sometimes get really, really run down, and all I need is a bit more rest. Sounds like that’s what happened to you!
Thumbs down to the house. I did not like it at all. It needs a lot of work and I am not willing to do that. Minor things yes but nothing major. I did find someone else to share a room with. I am going to cancel my reservation and share a room with someone else.
I am sorry about the house. At some point, with any house, work will have to be done.
That’s great that you find someone to enjoy the race with! I hope you have a fantastic time!
Hope your long run went well (yesterday?). House hunting is fun, but stressful! Our son made an offer on a condo last week…so the hunt is over, now it’s all the other “stuff” to sort through LOL
Congrats to your son! House hunting is stressful and I am getting tired of it. Sometimes I just want to buy a new construction house and get what I want but those houses are out in the suburbs. I am not willing to move out there since I prefer to live in the city.
House hunting is definitely stressful. I hope it went well yesterday!
Thumbs down. I will need to keep looking.
Good luck with the house viewing!
Thumbs down. I did not like it at all. Back to looking.
whoah! my garmin and the treadmill are NEVER the same! that’s like a once in a lifetime thing! haha!
maybe you were just tired! our bodies are odd; just when we think we know them, something else happens!
excited to hear about the house hunting!! we are thinking about a new place too…
That never happens to me either so that is why I was shocked when I saw it. How exciting you are house hunting too! Stressful but exciting too.
Glad to see you’re getting some miles in again. I’m sure you’ll do fine at your half–you’ll be fine!
Thanks, Wendy! I keep telling myself that because I want to be positive but at the same time we also doubt ourselves. I know that no matter what happens, it will be a great weekend.
