It’s Monday so that must mean it’s time to recap last weeks running. Normally I don’t run back to back days…at least not since the stress fracture from earlier this year. I’ve being doing my best to keep my miles low and just work on speed. But since I knew that I wasn’t going to be able to run last weekend due circumstances out of my control, I ran ever day last week. First time in a while since I’ve had mileage this high. I won’t lie, it felt good to run every day even though I had to get up every morning at 3:45 to get those runs in. Heatwaves can’t stop me, I’ve got running to do and I honestly needed those runs. It was a very stressful week that lead up to an even stressful weekend. But sometimes you have to do what you can and just try to make it though.
Due to the heat wave, I cut Monday and Wednesday’s run short. It was so hot, even at 4am to keep running. But this mornings run was blissfully cool. I even ran an extra mile just for the joy of it.
Half marathon training for the Folsom Blues Breakout starts on the 23rd. I’m nervous about it. The longest run I’ve had since I started running again this year has been 6.2 miles. And every one of those miles was tough. I wish I had a preview of the training schedule so that I’d know what I’m getting into. I’m guessing that the first long run will be 7 miles. But I don’t really know for sure. I’m feeling really nervous about it. I’m sure once it starts I’ll be fine. I’ve run several halves before so none of this is new to me. But I’m a planner so not knowing what’s coming up is a little difficult for me.
How was your week?
