Hello and Happy Monday, friends! 🙂
As I write this, it’s Sunday evening and I have wine, tea and nuun beside me. I’m obviously making sure I’m well hydrated after my weekend 🙂
I can’t wait to tell you about this week of training, but first, I owe y’all a huge apology. I realized I pre-wrote my post last week and did a crap job editing it. I didn’t actually run 30km on my treadmill. I planned on it, but it just wasn’t my day, so I’m sorry for being a crappy blogger and an even crappier editor.
|Monday||13km easy||Off – sick|
|Tuesday||4 x 1200m speed||Off – sick|
|Thursday||15km tempo||4 x 1200m speed – total 12.8km|
|Friday||12k easy||10.71km easy|
|Saturday||15k easy||14.75km easy|
|Sunday||16k long||21.1km long|
Total planned mileage: 80km; actual mileage 71.8km
My week got off to a rocky start with some dizziness and a low-grade fever on Monday and Tuesday, but as you can see, it improved significantly after those days.
After being crappy and snowy, Wednesday was relatively nice so I ventured outside and ended up running in a snowstorm for the last 2km! I’m super glad it was just the last 2km of my run because I’m not a fan of running in crap weather.
After my issues last week, I gave myself about 90 minutes after waking to eat and digest before heading out and I had no issues with dizziness on Saturday or Sunday. I was even able to shed layers and run in a tank top both days. It wasn’t super warm, but warm enough that I wasn’t cold while running in just my tank 🙂 I even got a bit of a tan and I might have done a little happy dance after noticing some tan lines! 😀
I’m really hoping I can keep my momentum going forward for the next seven weeks until my race 🙂
Here’s what week 11 looks like…
|Wednesday||Off – Massage!!|
Total planned mileage: 91km
Another week with crazy high mileage.
I’m actually working all weekend (and I do mean all weekend, 8-8 on Saturday and 8-4 on Sunday) so it’ll be interesting to see how I fit in my runs. I’m hoping I’ll be able to get out for a run Saturday after work but Sunday will be a bit tricky. I’m not going to put too much pressure on myself and will play it by ear and do my best to get my mileage in.
It’s also been a while since I’ve done a Hanson’s Method post, so after I review what the heck a strength run is, I’ll write a blog post about it! 🙂
Tell me: What are you looking forward to this week?
