So tired, Saturday

So…last night, I went out with a friend. We had not seen each other in months and months.  In fact, I had decided she was just not really available as a friend anymore and moved on. But this week in the middle of work, she called me, and she seemed to want to chat.  I …

Thursdays Fun.

You know..for a rest week…this is turning out to be kind of a busy one. Thursday had a 20 min bike ride, a 3 mile run with some pickups in it, and Weights. So, noting our fallish weather… temp 77 humidity 93%  I decided to get the run done in the morning in that delicious …

Wednesday

I had a temptation to call this post “Wonderful Wednesday”  or something really witty like that.  Well, It really was pretty darn wonderful… I woke up this morning, feeling uncommitted to the whole run thing.  I was a wee bit sore from the weights workout.  Not bad, just enough that you know you did something…you …

Rest Week Tuesday

So it’s probably a good thing it is a Rest and recovery week, because work has become a rather delicate MESS..   Luckily, I am in a mood to tackle EVERYTHING.  I suspect my manager is a bit peeved at me because last week she attempted to draft me into a rather large project that …

Rest Week Commences! (and wrap up from last week.) and life updates.

Today was the beginning of a rest week. It was feeling super cool outside this morning:  which means 75 DEGREES  and 99% humidity… Still with the 2 degree drop and the fact that the run was 1/2 of what it was last week, I felt pretty good. I ran pretty well overall.  I just do …

Sleepy Saturday

So, I believe now that the long workout on Saturday is responsible for most of my feelings of exhaustion. I woke up late today and still felt like I had taken a huge ride on the pain train… Which is I suppose what I have done.  My low back and shoulders were especially tight.  THis …

Freaky Friday

Friday was truly kind of freaky.  I decided to sleep in and not swim in the morning.  Doing this of course put me at risk for Florida lived up to it’s reputation and I was not even able to make it to the gym without becoming very very wet:   So…I decided to just do …

Tracktown Thursday

Thursday is currently speed work day on my plan. So I rolled out of bed, feeling a mix of anxiety and tiredness. I do not love this workout.  The thing about speed work is that when it is being done correctly, you do not actually feel very good. Look at the facial expressions.  This is …
