Easing back into everything this week. Work, exercise, all of it. Some things are easier than others. My diet and sleep are still messed up, and I’m having trouble finding the willpower to get back to my low-carb diet and proper bedtimes. My running buddies think I need to cut myself some slack, given that – HELLO – I ran a marathon less than a fortnight ago. I just think I could do a little better. My workouts have been really good though. The Snook and I went for a short run Sunday, then I had a (hard) Spudds class Monday night. Tuesday was another run at lunchtime. Wednesday was Spudds again. For my last run of the week today, I did some hill repeats on Cathedral Street with a friend. YOWCH. I got that painful (but also good) burn down way down in my chest that you only get from wheezing up a hill in cold weather…
June 19: 4.08km
June 21: 5.63km
June 24: 5.43km
Total this week: 15.14km (9.4mi)
Total in 2011: 644.88km (403mi)
To meet my goal of running 1200km in 2011, I should be at 576.9km. Yep, still got a nice cushion.
I have to give a shout-out to the Snook too, who is gamely joining me in training for the Blackmore’s Half-Marathon. He even did some mid-week workouts by himself! Kickass.
