Well, this week has come and gone and I am kind of proud of myself I must say. I managed to get in 31 miles on a week when we had company in town and we went out of town for a day. Normally, I would have slacked off on my running (like I did last weekend) and not gotten it in and had good excuses for it...like "I can't run - we have family in town." or " I can't run, it will take away from our company." You know stuff like that...but I was able to get up and run - sometimes early, sometimes later in the morning- but I got it done none the less...
Here is how it went this week:
Tuesday - ran 3
Wednesday - ran 3
Thursday - ran 5 with 4 hill repeats in the middle
Saturday - 13 mile trails
Sunday 7 mile run
Grand Total = 31 miles Woo Hoo!!!
I had set my goals for August pretty low because of our family being in town for a week and a half. I had decided that for August I would aim low...go for 50 miles....Well, right now I am sitting at 84 miles and I have 10 more days to go! Niiiice...I need to not set my standards so low next time, but I really thought running while company was in town was going to be much more challenging - probably because I have NEVER run when they were in town...I always said I would, but I always used it as an excuse not to.
This weekend I am going to Austin to run "The Shoe" with my brother. I don't know that he has ever run trails before, but this is a night trail race...We are doing the 10K. I am super excited because I like to do races with my brother - it is one thing we can do together since he lives down in Austin and we don't get to see each other as much as we want. Austin always has cool races - so I find them and he does them! :-) That's what big sisters are for, right?
|This should be interesting!|
So....goals for this week are:
Monday - 6 miles
Tuesday - off
Wednesday - 14 miles (slow)
Thursday - 7 miles
Friday - off
Saturday - The Shoe 10k in Austin
Sunday - off
I would also like to get some cross training in this week with some weights and possibly a swim. My IT Band has been bothering me this week so I need to be careful and ice and stretch it every day.
What are your goals for this week?
