Week 44: Monterey Bay Half Prep

Upcoming Races-

  • Monterey Bay Half Marathon (Thank you BibRave!)- 11/12
  • Oakland Turkey Trot- (Thank you BibRave!) 11/22

Another week on the road and I admit I was mentally fried.   I spent the week feeling like I was fighting something and just overall very tired.   I liked working in the San Diego office and the people I was working with but I missed home.

Monday- Rest
I had thought about running on the treadmill after work- I really needed to do laundry but I wasn’t feeling well after work.  I went back to the hotel and just kind of zoned out.

Tuesday-2ish miles
I did laundry in the hotel laundry again and hopped on the treadmill for a bit while I was waiting on the wash load.   Seriously less than impressed with those washing machines.  And my mileage. I was also feeling sorry for myself missing the Kip Moore concert back home.

Wednesday- Mes de Mas
Well, kind of.   I was modifying things so as to not sound like a herd of elephants to hotel room below me.  Then I was about 20 minutes in when I had a repeat of Sunday and was running to bathroom. Yay.

See you later, SD office

Thursday/ Friday- Nothing
My stomach was an asshat for the next 2 days.   Fun.  I kept a smile on my face and just kept working.

Saturday- Driving
I left San Diego early in the morning and arrived home in the afternoon.  Home!   After laundry and some errands, I was so happy to sleep in my bed.

Sunday- 3.1 miles
I slept in.  I did wake up and follow the New York Marathon on Twitter but I did not get out of bed.  😛    I headed out in the afternoon for a short run, I knew I should probably do a long run but didn’t want to.   Could someone tell me where the fall weather is?  It was 85*- why?  This run was not easy, it felt so much harder than I had hoped.  I guess after a week of slacking that was to be expected.
5.1 miles for the week.  Go ahead, laugh- I’m laughing too.  If I travel like this again, I will be better prepared.

How was your week?
