Week 38-Sundown

Think I am going to make my motto for the rest of the year to just roll with it. And roll and roll. And now I’m singing that song from Clueless.

Monday- 3 miles
I headed out after work to get in some miles. I was still feeling a little bit of the migraine fog. By the time I felt like I was finally warmed up and moving my legs, I was already done. Maybe I should have run more but I also didn’t want to push it.

Mood

Tuesday- Thursday- Rough
I knew I had off site training for work so I knew running was going to be tricky. I was hoping to get in a run or 2 in a new town but what I didn’t anticipate was the massive flare up my GI disorder. That was fun. Food and I were enemies. Even taking myself to Jamba the last day of training didn’t work. I was also starting to rethink my weekend plans.

*See, I thought I needed incentive to run 10 miles this weekend. So I looked online and guess what? There was a race in Huntington Beach! Nothing like drive 5 hours to run 10 miles. 😂

But I also was accepting that I was not ok. So I dropped to the 10k.

Oh-I did hop on the bike on Tuesday for a few miles.

Friday- Rest
I felt a tiny bit better but still felt like I had made the right choice downgrading.

Saturday- Surf City 10! Recap to come.

Sunday- Shopping
That counts as cardio right? I stopped at an outlet mall that I ‘ve driven past for years. It was amazing! I walked all over and shopped til I dropped. I bought running pants so fall weather, come on out!

11.7 ish miles for the week. I am winning at under trained. Ha!

How was your week?

  1. I missed my long run Sunday – was supposed to be 6 miles – but it’s the 2nd Sunday in a row, and I told Adam that I needed to figure something out, it was the 2nd Sunday I had missed. And he goes – and it punched me to the heart, because even though he was joking, he was so spot on “Just excuses, you have the don’t want tos” And ugh, it was all just excuses. But, his working 12 hours a day, 5 days a week, and me deciding an amusement park 2 weekends in a row was a good idea, has me exhausted by the time Sunday rolls around! LOL.

    • Yes, I definitely have a case of the don’t want to’s. I don’t have an amusement park as an excuse though. I kind of wish I did. Although it does sounds as tiring as it does fun.
