Registered for Norfolk Half Marathon this morning. If all goes well, I am hoping to run sub 1:40.
No training today - too many things going on.
Back in town. Nooner stress relief run. RPE = 5.
There are just not enough hours in the day lately. This weekend is crazy busy, so training will be light once again.
I am sorry for the lack of inspires lately. I hope everyone is doing well and training safe. I will try to catch up at some point over the next couple of days.
Hotel dreadmill run. Too bad I wasn't smart enough to bring some cold weather clothes so that I could run some hills outside (as Janelle suggested). RPE = 3.
Up early for an easy spin. RPE = 2.
Wanted to swim today, but work prevented that. Maybe later tonight, but doubtful.......
Training will be sporadic for a little while as there are not enough hours right now to balance everything going on. Nashville trip Wednesday & Thursday, so we will see what I can get in at the hotel.
Easy run at lunch. I still don't have my legs, but my lungs (HR) were much better. Weird weather for January - 75 degrees and windy! I was getting blown around something fierce going over the bridges. RPE = 3.
Planned drainer ride tonight while either watching 24 or some MLK documentaries (I know - complete opposites).
Seeing how this is the half way point of the month, I know I will not make my monthly goals. My travel schedule picks up again this week, and between that and other work/personal commitments getting in my LONG weekend training sessions will be tough. Oh well, that's ok because I feel really good about my base coming into 'official' IM training on Feb 5. And honestly, I know my body could use another 2 - 3 less stressful weeks before it all begins. That being said, I will not use any of this as an excuse to be a 'slacker'. I will get in my work, just not as much as expected at the beginning of the month.
Splish - Splash. Laps, laps, laps. Swim for endurance. Focused on 'reaching' with each stroke.
The week of bike avoidance is over. I will get all three colors in my graph this upcoming week.
