I did something stupid last Sunday. I wasn’t feeling well but I went out for my 8 mile long run anyway. Now as I look back I don’t know why I was so bound and determined to get the run in. I should have stopped after the first mile. Or when I looped back to where my car was parked around 5 miles. But instead I had to keep going until I hit 8 miles. Even though I made that goal, I hurt myself enough that I had to take the whole past week off from training. And the Disneyland 1/2 Marathon is only a week away. Good thing I was planning to take it easy for that race anyway. So here are the workouts I’ve done since my last post.
Friday, August 21 – 13.78 mile bike ride in 1:12:08
Saturday, August 22 – a little over 3 mile run
The batteries on my Garmin were low so I went out without it and just did three laps around the neighborhood.
Sunday, August 23 – 8.11 mile run (Adidas)
I used a 5 min run/1 min walk plan again which seems to work well for me.
Hopefully I’ll be back up and running on Monday. That’ll give me a few days to get back in the running groove before we leave for Anaheim. In the meantime, I’m going to try and work on a race report for Chicago this weekend. I really need to do better at getting race reports out in a more timely manner.
