I had a plan coming into this week but was thrown an unexpected curve ball towards the middle that slowed me down. And left me craving burgers- seriously, I ate 3 this week. 😛 Maybe I should avoid the scale for a bit? Or should I just call it carb loading? Except that’s a bit excessive.
We got new alarms at work this week. Which would be awesome if we didn’t keep setting them off. Grrr. Speaking of work- a few weeks back I mentioned that I hit 10 years but I thought with the company change it would go unnoticed. On Friday, I learned differently-
Monday- 2.5 miles Since Sunday’s run had been such a hot mess, I kept this short. I also ran in the Sayonara’s again for the first time since the knee pain. I wanted to see what happened. It’s official, the shoes are toast. Even 2.5 miles was too far in them. Boo.
Wednesday- Rest Surprise! I recently randomly quit birth control for some heath reasons and it’s been an interesting ride. I’ve been taking it since I was 16 so I’ve been feeling a little all over the place. Wednesday was the start of my first real time of the month in years. And it jacked up my week. 😛 Plus sent me into a burger craving spiral.
Thursday- 3.55 miles This run felt so hard. I kept an easy pace throughout but it felt so damn hard and I was so tired. I blame hormones. I also changed the way I lace the Brooks to see if that helped with my arches. Why it took me so long to remember to do that, I have no idea. I did it with all my PureFlow 4’s, these would probably be similar. Silly Slacker. It was also insanely windy for this run.
Friday- Rest– This week just felt long and it was time to prepare for my weekend plans. I had some odd leg pain though. I have it every time I up my mileage though so I wasn’t overly concerned just more annoyed.
Saturday- RaceSLO packet pickup I needed to run 12 miles this weekend but we all know I haven’t been doing so well with following through with that. So I figured why not add a mile and run a local half on Sunday instead? Sounds like a great idea right? I did enjoy some amazing carb-loading though. 😛
