Rosemary’s Training Log 8-12-12

A down week for mileage and mentality.

So, I have this bad habit. Or maybe it is a good habit. I’ll fess up and you decide. When running isn’t going “well,” I don’t want to write about it. Maybe it is taking the addage “if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all,” a little too far. Regardless, it explains my delayed training log entry.

This was a fall-back mileage week at 36 miles.

 

 

Monday- 6 miles. I wanted to sleep in, but dragged myself out of bed and felt great on the run.

Tuesday- 7 miles with 6 x 3 min on/ 2 min off. Paces 7:07, 6:45, 6:47, 6:57, 7:07. Set a short term goal of getting under 7 min pace for all reps next time around.

Wednesday- 5 miles easy. Was not in the mood to run.

Thursday- weight class

Friday- 8 miles with Kim. Planned to do last 3 miles < 8min pace but I didn’t feel like it. Unlike me because I’m usually pretty stoked for workouts. From my log on logarun:

Can’t tell if I’ve lost my mojo or just in a rut. Haven’t felt much like anything this week either, so hoping it just a “down week” mentally.

This is usually how I feel post-workout, but I just wasn’t into it this week.

Saturday- off

Sunday- 10 miles easy with my first-time marathon training friend, Rae. It’s been really fun to share her first time marathon experience.

I'm a pediatric physical therapist by day. Running mostly early am miles as I balance life as the mom of a toddler. With PR days in the past, my primary running goal is to be a lifelong runner. With 20+ years behind me, I still love the sport and I am truly grateful for every day I get to run.
