I’m back! An insane work schedule and “special project” led to my 4-week absence, but now it’s over! I’m back I’m back I’m back!
An abbreviated training schedule and short overview of the past four weeks is below as I know you’ve been on tenterhooks. . . (does anyone actually say that??)
3/29 – 4/4, Run: 48 miles (Bike: 23 miles)
-Workout Wednesday: 4 mile variable pace tempo run: 6:47, 6:10, 6:40, 6:02
-15 mile trail run in the pouring rain
4/5 – 4/11, Run: 25 miles
– All day training for two days followed by a trip to Dallas
-Very minimal running opportunities. . .
-Ran first 7 miles of my 50k course over the weekend, and I may be in a bit of trouble as it is SERIOUSLY hilly (for me)
4/12 – 4/18, Run: 35 miles
-Working every minute of every day. Practically literally.
-Left work at 4;15am on Thursday and was back at 7:30 for our final presentation.
-Tried a long run over the weekend and totally died. Apparently sleep and healthy work/life balance are kind of important for one’s body to function.
Sunday (4/19): Sleeping. Bike: 7 miles
Monday (4/20): Run: 7.5 miles, Bike: 18 miles
Tuesday (4/21): Run: 5.5 miles, Bike:16 miles
Wednesday (4/22): Run: 8 miles (3 mile tempo: 6:29, 6:32, 6:28)
Thursday (4/23): Took the day off of work as I was still feeling kind of off. I got to catch up on things like laundry and cleaning and making granola and it was GREAT. Run: 6 miles
Friday (4/24): Run: 7 miles
Saturday (4/25): Run: 20 miles (trail) – this was a bit rough for the last 2-3 miles, but I’m very glad it happened. And then I got donuts.
Bike: 41 miles
Run: 54 miles
Anyway, as you could tell from the beginning of this post. I’m really really happy to have my life and my schedule back. it’s probably good for me to get my PRECIOUS ROUTINE disrupted sometimes, but it’s absolutely wonderful to have it back : )
