30 weeks of Marathon training.

just a spot to write about the next 30 weeks….of running.

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…

Pain Train Pic.Which is I suppose what I have done.  My low back and shoulders were especially tight.  THis is probably because of the way I ride the stationary.

Instead of this:



I usually end up after a while like THIS:



Sooo one can see where that might be coming from.  Add in a treadmill run and you are set for low back pain.

Today I had to try to get Fridays workout in.

It was Weights, run one mile, Swim 2500 yards…

SO I hopped on the elliptical because I sure did not want to get on a bike again.

Did about a mile on the lipty to warm up.

Then I started doing the weights.



I was not feeling 100% great.  But as I did the workout, I started to feel much better.  I always try to mix up my weights a bit, so that there are things that involve some loosening and stretching.

I then finished up, chatted with some work folks…and went for “THE LAST SWIM”

The pool has a tear in it’s lining and needs to be drained and repaired.  So it’s closed for 2 weeks.

So I hit the pool, and really found it slow going.  Pool was wonderful, temp perfect, not over chlorinated for once…Mid swim I actually got HUNGRY.  kind of odd, and I regretted the fact that while I had an orange, it was at home..with all the other oranges.  😦

But I was tired.  So once I finished off my 2500, I felt pretty awesome.  Showered and got dressed and headed out.

After inhaling a lunch…I fell asleep on the couch for 2 hours.  FInally managed to get up and study a bit for certification exam.  I need to continue to focus on that exam as well, as it will be the key to future employment….if I ever want to leave. Lately, I do want to leave, but…we will see.  Love living here, but the job is so stressful….
