Let's Talk Training!!
Monday: Class started Monday and I drove up to campus that morning so my run had to wait until the afternoon. One thing I hadn't planned on was that it is FRIGGIN hot off Cape!!! I had the goal of 10 miles in mind...8 miles later I was thankful I made it without passing out! Seriously it was a mental and physical battle! I promptly finished and stuck my head in the freezer! Needless to say it was a fun night of nausea and a throbbing headache!!
Tuesday: I woke up still not too certain about my body so I kept it easy with pilates in the morning. By the time the afternoon rolled around I was ready to get my sweat on! I hit up the fitness center on campus which WOW did I feel old! But this old lady kicked some ass busting out 5 miles and lifting ALL the weights! I left spent with a big ole smile on my face!
Wednesday: Up early with the fog....big difference in the morning temps! I got in 4 miles around campus and some great views too!
In the afternoon I decided I wanted to finally check out some of the trails on campus. Funny enough in the 4 years I was there as a student I had never really explored that part of campus (except a late night swim in the pond there or our class on the ropes course). It was beautiful and I had fun remembering funny moments in the woods as a student! 3 more miles added to the day before I met a friend out for dinner
Thursday: I hit up the fitness center again early (far less youngins!) for some weights. After class I met up with my BRF Jill who is visiting from Colorado. I just kept looking over while we were running and smiling!!! I was so excited to see her again!!!
Friday: Up early with the sun again to get in 6 miles before class. My legs were spent by this run...and so was the rest of me! The past few weeks I have really been struggling with being really fatigued both mentally and physically. Not something that I want to be happening just 7 weeks before ZOOMA Half Marathon. I'm also battling with a very angry belly....not really sure what is going on there. I'm hoping this week I can get some more energy for my workouts and that my stomach can stop hating me so much!!
I was certainly happy to cross the bridge and be back with hubs and these two lovely ladies!!!
