      DAY PLANNED RUNNING COMMENTS
      Mon Rest    
      Tues 4 EZ Miles 4 Made it all the way up a nemesis hill without stopping for one of only two times.  Triumph!
      Wed 5 Miles w/Fartleks (if I want) 5 miles Terrible bathroom issues.  Took me about 20 min to complete the last mile without pooing all over myself.
      Thurs 7 Miles w/4-6 x 100m Strides 7 miles w/6 strides  
      Fri Rest   Needed this
      Sat 12-16 Trail Miles 12 miles Glad I went for 12 and not 16.  My legs are really tired.  Am thinking about taking tomorrow completely off as I'm not feeling like they're recovering very well during this taper period.  I'd rather go into Mt. Hood next weekend with less mileage under my belt than dog tired.
      Sun 6-8 Trail Miles w/4-6 x 100m Strides    I opted for a total rest day.  I'm tired and I deserve the rest.
      Total    28 miles

        Thanks, Leslie! That might be why I didn't notice it earlier....

         

        Big race coming up on Sunday. Hope I don't explode.

         

        Monday: 2.6 miles elliptical, 10 minutes abs & core

        Tuesday: 6.1 miles with the last 4 sorta tempo, .3 mile walk c/d (dance practice mid-day)

        Wednesday: 6 miles GA, .3 mile walk, dance practice mid-day and full practice in evening

        Thursday: Unplanned rest day. Rained all day and I didn't want to get wet. Roll eyes

        Friday: Dance practice at 2 (finished our routine!), then 9.1 miles run and .4 mile walk c/d

        Saturday: 1.5 hours dance practice, man I work up a sweat doing that! The 4.4 miles run, .5 mile walk

        Sunday: Gold Discovery Run race, 16.5 miles (2:22 and 1st in AG)

         

        Totals: 42.2 miles run, 2.6 miles elliptical, 1.6 walking and lots of dance practice

          Good Morning everyone,

           

          Thanks Leslie.The past 8 months I just did whatever I felt like in the morning if I didn't get stuck in my school text book. For now, running is still an add on to school, but I've noticed the last two months that seems to work for me. No pressure to go out and run. But I'm trying to be more organised lately and get 4 shorty-short runs in

           

          Erika: what race are you talking about?

           

          Mon: 30 min circuit workout

          Tue: 30 min LB workout + 3.76 kilometer doggie run that took forever with thanks to Spike Big grin Spike found a tennis ball and tried to run with it while holding it in his mouth. When I wanted to take it from him he tried to bark at me, but was making such funny noises that I laughed out loud. If I'd been sitting in a chair, I'd fallen off.

          Wed: Nice run with Spooky. Same loop as Sunday: 6.75 kilometers. Thought last nights dinner bit me in the ass, as I had a huge energy problem. Eating cereal for dinner is NOT a good idea. I needed loads of walk breaks. Funnily enough, I was only slower than Sunday in the first half of my run. I was faster in the second half. I guess by then the sugar in the fructose tablets and sports drink had kicked in.

          Added a 30 min boxing workout (incl warm up and stretch) and a 10 min boxing oriented ab w/o. My breakfast tasted ever soooo good.

          Thu: didn't feel well and called in sick. Skipped planned workout, but did Sleep Max instead

          Fri: Feeling better. Did a 45 min UB strength w/o (incl. core) but postponed the doggie run till tomorrow. Not that energetic yet.

          Sat: Nice, and surprisingly fast 3.76 kilometer doggie run this morning. Spike was at his best behaviour. That probably explains our speed today. Energy still seems lacking.That's why I had breakfast first before continueing my workout after approx. 60 min with a 40 min LB w/o that mixes plyometric exercises with traditional LB exercises.

          Sun: Very nice and very slow 8.58 kilometer easy run with Spooky. I think this is my longest run this year. Felt surprisingly easy, despite yesterday's tough LB w/o.

           

          Not a bad week at all.

           

          Week totals:

          Running: 22.85 kilometers

          UB: 2x (incl. boxing w/o)

          LB: 2x

          Abs: 2x

          Aerobic circuit training: 1x

                  Dutchie, it's this one!

                    Erika: that reads like a lot of fun and very nice scenery. I'm no good at interpreting elevation graphs, but looking at that course graph I'm quite intimidated Shocked I'm sure you trained well for it, so you'll do great!

                      Dutchie, that's the problem... I missed any real training from the end of June till just recently, now it's really too late. Had shin soreness that kept me off the running for awhile, and definitely off any quality training. So, we'll go with what we've got and hope to do ok...

                         Oopsie, sorry. Were you in relatively good running shape before your shin problems? You might surprise yourself endurance wise. Just think positive. Focus on the runner in front of you and follow in his surge. Good luck tomorrow. I'll be sending you good vibes Smile
