Whomp, whomp, whomp. Yeah, so the nice little 11 day workout streak I had ended this Monday. The kiddo was sick and I wasn’t feeling 100% so I wasn’t able to get my workouts in as previously scheduled. I had great intentions of setting up the trainer to get some miles in, but even that was waylaid.
This was supposed to be a recovery week anyways. Any miles are good miles. I had been avoiding the gym, and I swear it’s because I swam last Friday! 😦 Healthy thoughts, healthy thoughts, must think healthy thoughts! 🙂 Anyhoo, here’s the week in review.
Monday-Wednesday: sick and caring for a sick kiddo. Workouts were just wishful thinking.
Thursday: Cold and not awake for 0.5 mile repeats. It takes me a little while to warm up.
When your kiddo has been home sick for three days. And (each day) you thought you'd get on the trainer after you posted about on IG, but you didn't. #becauselife And you can't sleep because of stupid cough, but you get up and run intervals anyways because #pratimamademedoit And you think, I'm just going to do 3, but you end up doing 4 because you're tired, sleepy, and cold and you can't count. 😂😂 😂😂 Happy Thursday all!! #JOrunsPHXMesa2018 #womenfortri #besttriclubever #mrtt #wearestrong #resultsstarthere #werunsocial #stronghappyrunners #halfmarathontraining #triathlontraining #triing2018 #runhundredambassadors
Friday: Burned my upper body (especially my biceps).
Saturday: Easy 60 min run with MRTT
Sunday: Plan said 1:45 long run, I went with 10 miles to build confidence for pacing the She Power Half.
This week, if it weren’t for MRTT and I don’t think that I would have made my pacing goals. I don’t think that I even would have gotten out of bed! When it’s cold, you definitely need the motivation support of your sole sisters!
This weekend was full of training runs with my #solesisters (5 miles for Saturday and 10 miles for today). We had great sized groups for both days. All the ❤ my #MRTT sisters here, there, and everywhere. #REALwomenmove #resultsstarthere #womenfortri #besttriclubever #runhundredambassadors #procompressionambassador #sponsored #skirtsportambassador #JOrunsPHXMesa2018
