Happy Sunday everyone! With two work days this week for me, it sure went by fast. This is week 4 of my training plan and it was awesome.
I am so mad at myself! I messed up and missed taking a Peloton class on Monday. It was a rest day for me and on a day like that I either walk or take a meditation class. I did neither. I woke up in the middle of the night and realized that I had missed a class.
Here is how my week went:
Monday: Rest day. I was off for Martin Luther King’s Birthday. I also took my mom to the doctor for some bloodwork. She goes every 3 months and for the most part, her results have been positive. I don’t know why I didn’t do this before, but I finally switched her to a Spanish-speaking doctor. I can translate what the doctor says but why not have one that speaks in the language she understands?
Tuesday: Ran 3.15 miles. A great run! I ran faster than I should have. I felt good and was pleased with how I did. It was almost all negative splits.
Wednesday: Ran 4.08 miles. Another great run. Felt really good again. The run portion was 3.68 miles @11:40 average pace. I thought the weather was perfect with low 30s and hardly any wind.
We had a little bit of excitement that day. There was a water main break in the community which left the school with no water. By noon we were bussed to the junior high school a few blocks away. We were there until almost 2 pm and by then there was water again in the building.
Thursday: Ran 3.14 miles. Can you guess how this run went? Yep, good again. The run portion was 3.66 miles @11:49 average pace.
Friday: Rest day. I was exhausted. Running or no running, I am exhausted by Friday. Thursday night I finished book #2 and began reading “The Plot”.
Saturday: Ran 6.70 miles. A good run. Not too cold or windy. I did two fun classes which kept me going. Somehow I messed up when programming my workout because there were enough run/walk intervals for 6 miles instead of 7. Not a problem since I could just run another mile without my watch telling me when to run and when to walk. It all worked out because my legs felt tired. I did more walking than running and did just enough to get home. I guess I could have kept going an extra .30 to make it to 7.
Sunday: Walked 2.54 miles. There was a bit of snow on the ground. It was actually pleasant and I had so many random thoughts in my head during those 45 minutes of walking.
It was a great week of running. The weather was pleasant, though some sun would have helped. It has been cloudy and gloomy all week. It looks like it will be sunny tomorrow and then cloudy the rest of the week.
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
