Another Monday is here! Crazy how time flies. Only 14 more Mondays before the Marathon!
The daily countdown is down to double digits now! Which makes my report of last week’s training even more shameful. I was planning to run before work and I did not wake up early enough any single day. I’m so mad! Billions of excuses I could give, but the fact is that I didn’t “want” to get up and that’s about it.
My runs completed last week were Tuesday: 4 miles, Saturday: 10 miles and Sunday: 2 miles. I had scheduled 12 miles for Saturday’s long run but I did not have a good morning.
I went to the movies the night before and had way too much popcorn, way too much! I woke up with an upset stomach and (this might be too much information) I wasn’t able to use the bathroom. So I knew it was going to be a tough run. I know for a fact that I’m not the only runner that gets their tummy “functioning” while running. I could write a whole blog about this LOL we could call it “Pee, poo and toots of a runner” So anyway, I had to cut the run short. But I did run 2 extra miles on Sunday that I had not scheduled. Still not enough miles and runs for the week. I’m a little (a lot) behind on my training plan and cutting it very close to Marathon Day, so I need to start to take this seriously!
I had already plan for this week, still trying to get my runs before work I was going to commit to two miles in the early am, not a big commitment, but an easy way to get used to being an early bird. Guess what? I didn’t get up this morning! So I have to rearrange my plan, let’s see if I can complete this:
· Monday: 4 miles
· Tuesday: 4 miles
· Wednesday: 2 miles (early am)
· Thursday: 2 miles (early am)
· Friday: Rest
· Saturday: 12 miles
· Sunday: 2 miles
Truth is that Wednesday and Thursday I work all day, so if I don’t get up early, those two days will become Rest days. Will see how this goes…
