The rest of Peak Week.

So the rest of peak week was “exciting” Holy Heck.  It was SO HARD. Thursday I had on the docket 10 by 800 repeats.  So I put on my game face and went for it. Apparently I really LIKE 800 reps.  By the time I got to the end of the workout, I had run …

Could it be?could it be?

That my legs have recovered from the torture I gave them recently. Seriously all that travel kind of screwed things up.  I really wonder exactly how Professional runners and other athletes deal with all the jet lag of travel before the big meets in Dubai etc.  I did not deal well with it at all. …

Wow I’m really quite tired

So I did Swim/run/swim/run on tuesday. Wednesday I ran 4 miles.  It did not go super well.  To start with my garmin died mid run. Luckily it stopped working at mile 2.6 in a 4 mile run. It was an out and back.  So to do the correct distance, all I had to do was …

Day 6 of build….Soul sucking….

Well.  I knew Day 6 would be hard. I got to the gym about 15 minutes later than I wanted which was very irritating to me. But 15 minutes is pretty good for my track record. I got on the cycle and started to spin.  I felt tired.  So I took the level on the …

Friday Fail Day

Soooo, Thursday I had to have a massage in my house. It was AWFUL.  I LOVE my massage therapist, but I think I hate to have people in my house.  It’s pretty messy.  I did make an effort to clean up a bit but with the dog shedding so much, my vacuum gets clogged with …

Build week continues…

My headache continues.  It is intermittent now, but still kind of debilitating when it is present.  I oddly had a moment to ask an Ear, Nose, Throat physician about it.  He said I could have a “micro fracture”  from getting the foot in the face etc out at the lake.  I’m going to continue to …

Midweek….

Training update. Last week my coach told me he was going out cave diving this weekend. He loves this stuff. I dont love that he does it as it is very dangerous. I do think it’s kind of cool and the stuff he sees is amazing.  I also know that there isn’t any stopping this …

Spectacular Saturday

Not in Spectacularly fabulous, but more like- I was a spectacle. So Saturday’s are Bricks. I generally like Saturdays. I get a chance to listen to I HEART Radio’s gospel station.  I love it.  I get to get all sweaty and then run outside. But come summer, these bricks become somewhat unbearable. The gym, where …
