Monday, again?! I’m so confused as to what day of the week it is still. Having two extra days off last week really through me for a loop. I actually spent most of Saturday watching movies and napping. And I still don’t feel quite like I’m back up to speed. But no time like the present for getting on track.
I only ran 3 times last week per my training schedule that I set up for myself. I postponed my long run from Saturday to Sunday because I just didn’t have the motivation to get myself dressed and ready to run. No regrets about it either.
Sunday’s long run was really tough. Apparently having a crunch wrap supreme from Taco Bell on Saturday for dinner is not enough fuel to power a long run. I only scheduled a 5 mile run but ended up running 5.5. I was so far from home I still had to walk almost a full mile after I stopped running but I was just done at that point. Note to self for next week: Eat better, do better.
I did set a new PR for myself last month. I set a new 5k PR. It’s not official since I didn’t set it during a race but it’s a good start.
I also met my goal for 50 miles in the month of May. It’s not much compared to what I was running back in October but the goal is to build slowly so I don’t injure myself. I’m trying to stick to the “only increase by 10%” rule. Goal for next month is 55 miles.
Do you set monthly mileage goals?
How was your training week?
