Week 26
Halfway through the year! I can’t believe it’s gone by so quickly. It feels like just yesterday I was stressing over getting to 1000km… and here I am six months later with a MARATHON under my belt! My recovery is going pretty well. I’m back on the Slow Carb Diet, and I think I’m past the initial “carb withdrawal” hump. (I was pretty cranky and tired on Wednesday, but I’ve perked up again.) I managed five workouts this week: a 10K “long run” with the Snook on Sunday, Spudds on Monday, lunchtime run on Tuesday, Spudds again on Wednesday, and another lunchtime run today. Oh, and I managed double-hundreds on the rower at BOTH of my Spudds classes! No wonder I was tired and grumpy. 🙂

June 26: 10.46km
June 28: 5.41km
July 1: 5.61km
Total this week: 21.48km (13.4mi)
Total in 2011: 666.36km (416.5mi)

In order to meet my goal of running 1200km in 2011, I should be at 600km right now. So I’ve got a nice healthy 66km cushion! (At this point last year, I was at 489km… so I’m like 180km ahead!)
