Licorice’s Training Log – 3.23.14

Y’all, the fact that Ellie doesn’t seem to want to sleep for more than 3-4 hours at a stretch is starting to get to me. However, just as I was about to totally lose it this week, she gave me a break and slept for 6 hours straight Saturday night. It happened to be on the same day I felt like I was coming down with a cold, so I couldn’tย reallyย enjoy it, but at least I got the extra sleep when I needed it.

I kept my run/walk intervals to 1 minute of each because, well, I haven’t really gotten in enough of a groove with it yet to progress anything. While it’s not getting easier (because I haven’t been very consistent), at least it’s not getting harder. Friday’s run felt rough at the beginning, but I quickly realized it was because I needed to pump up the jogging stroller tires. Easy fix. I was hoping to get out for one more run over the weekend, but the cold I picked up somewhere had other ideas.

Monday: Rest
Tuesday: Stroller Strides
Wednesday: Rest
Thursday: Stroller Strides
Friday: 1.3 mile run/walk (1 min run/1 min walk)
Saturday: Rest
Sunday: Rest

Total for the week: 1.3 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.
