Monday: I had orientation part 2 on Monday for the Student Teaching. I was running around like crazy afterward trying to get all the chores done before having to go to therapy so I ended up not working out. I had time at the end for a short workout, but decided against it. I am trying to follow my training plan which states rest on Mondays. Ugh. Does anyone else feel like a fat cow on Rest Days?
Tuesday: Woke up at 5:15 am got up and took care of the dogs and then set out for 4 miles. I am not sure if my mind needs reconditioning or if the fact that I have gained so much weight is killing my pace. I am going to go with both. I am trying not to care about finish times and more about finish lines, but it’s so hard when I ran a half marathon at a 10’22” pace just last November. Oh, how the mighty are falling.
Wednesday : I just didn’t care.
Thursday: I cared some, just not enough.
Friday: I tried to care?
Saturday: I had planned on 16 miles, and actually set out on the parkway, with all intentions of doing the whole damn thing. Did it happen? Nope. I got to 7 miles and decided to turn around. Then I got to 11.5 miles and called my husband to pick me up.
Guess what children? I need to go farther than that for a marathon. Let’s hope Week 10 is better.
Mileage: 22.80 Miles
