Licorice’s Training Log – 12.23.12

This week got off to a decent start, but then my long run got completely derailed by an unexpected all-nighter on Friday night. There’s absolutely no reason I was up so late (or woke up so early the next morning) except for the fact that I just couldn’t seem to fall or stay asleep. I’m someone who desperately needs to get a decent amount of sleep each night, and 4 hours doesn’t even come close to cutting it. Unfortunately, by the time I recovered from that on Sunday, my entire day was booked and I just couldn’t get out to run before it got dark. At 4:30 pm. (When do we start getting more daylight, again?)

Woe and alas. At least I am getting more consistent when it comes to getting the runs in, which is the important thing.

Monday: Rest

Tuesday: Rest. I was going to run, but I was still feeling fried from the yoga/race combination over the weekend, so I took an extra day. This wound up being the right decision.

Wednesday: 4 miles

Thursday: 3 miles

Friday: 3 miles

Saturday: Rest, as I stumbled through my day in a zombie-like state

Sunday: Rest.

Total for the week: 10 miles

In a previous life, I worked on computers and spent all day sitting. Thanks to running, I've rebooted my career and am now a running and triathlon coach and soon-to-be physical therapist. I've also got the mind and spirit of an elite trapped in the body of a back-of-the-packer.
