Can you believe another week has gone by? I am in shock. And I am really starting to get impressed with Travis’ dedication to it all. I see good things in his future as far as this half marathon is concerned.
Before I talk about training, let me hold my accountability for my weekly weigh-in.
Last week: 145.6
This week: 144.6
Down 1 pound this week. Just found a paper from 8/26 showing my weight to be 156! That makes me super proud and super encouraged to keep going. Just keep repeating “here comes the bride” until my arms are in shape for my dress.
And on to the workouts:
Definitely not a week in which I “followed the plan.” Snow days + pain in the shins mess things up.
Monday: 1 hour on my lovely trainer while watching Endless Love. I think I am in endless love with Alex Pettyfer. It was a typical home ride while watching a typical love story. My kind of workout.
Wednesday: Runs are supposed to happen on Tuesdays, but I ended up getting it done on Wednesday instead. 4 miles in 38:44 (9:41 pace).
Thursday: Mostly a rest day. Did some abs/wall sits at the pool while waiting for some swimmers to start practice.
Friday: Painful 4 miles on the treadmill. Shins started to bother me, so I definitely hope it stays warm outside for running. Finished in 38:30 (9:37 pace).
Saturday: Morning trainer ride before coaching and exploring DC. Nice, slow 40 minutes while reading The Joy Luck Club.
Sunday: Sunday should have been a 6 mile run, but I decided to elliptical the same distance instead. Hoping this helped the calves a bit.
Not the best week, but still not bad enough to ruin training. Hoping that my 4 miles schedule for this afternoon are painless. Well at least tolerable. After the run and coaching, Travis and I are going to see Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles. I CANNOT wait.
Are you a Beatles fan? I really got into them in high school and am so glad that I did!
