It was a big week for me! I finally bit the bullet and registered for two races! In less than 10 minutes, I was $210 poorer and registered for a 50K in March. And my first 100 miler! It’s crazy that it’s really happening now.
So here’s how my week went down:
Monday: rest/20 minutes of yoga.
Tuesday: 60 min of yoga/5 miles in one hour on the trails. I was hungry and kind of bored during this run. I don’t know why, but shorter distance trail runs alone are not my thing. Yoga was great though, I did a headstand! I’m getting closer to finally doing inversions unassisted again!
Wednesday: 60 min of yoga/5 miles at run club. I ran a quicker-than-normal pace at run club and it was a good run. I got to run with a friend I usually don’t run with, so I considered it my speedy run for the week.
Thursday: 30 min yoga/rest. Thursday is supposed to be hill day, but my legs were so beat up from the past two days for some reason.
Friday: 4 miles before work. I got up and ran in the dark for the first time in a while. It was cool to see the sunrise on my way back home.
Saturday: 17 miles of trails. It was great to have a Saturday off to run with some of my best trail running friends and take lots of fun photos.
Sunday: 7 miles of trails. I shared a few early miles with Salty. Then I had my worst trail fall EVER and ripped holes in my tights and banged up my knee. It didn’t hurt too much until afterward and I think my ego is bruised more than my knee. Other than that, it was a good run.
Total: 38 miles.
