Rest Week

Of course a Rest WEEK, is not like a rest day.  I’m still working out.  Just very lightly.   This came at a pretty good time, I was feeling tired out, and also still trying to heal up my left quad leg thing. The bad part is that the pool is closed for the week, …

Last Rest day….

This was my last rest day.  I almost totally bagged the workout.  Something I don’t think I’ve ever done. It was a 1500 swim.  This is a short workout.  20 mins tops.  So why on earth would I bag this one? Well…. Our nice pool was closed this weekend for a HUGE swim meet.  Several …

Rest week continuith

I’m enjoying the workouts from rest week. They are all very short, and as such I can “push it”  a little on pace and such and kind of have a bit of fun seeing how fast I can go on these shorter workouts. I also feel somehow energized from the workouts, rather than beat down. …

resting week

It is a rest week!  Wahoo! Love this painting by Dulac. Sunday I ran 5 very warm and sweat-soaked miles.  I’ve tried and tried to take pictures of the amount of sweat generated, the weight of the shirt, the dripping of liquid awesome from the shirts, but…to no avail…the photos just show a dark shirt… …

Rest day thoughts

What do you think about on your rest days?  How many do you take?  Some people I know train with 2 rest days a week, most seem to take one day entirely off. I get a rest day about once monthly.  I am not super tough, I just have “active” recovery type days that are …

impromptu rest.

So it is a rest week. That doesn’t actually mean… It just means my workouts are pretty easy. What’s been funny is that all week things have felt just a touch off.  I figured it was the massive job stress.  Turns out I was getting sick. Last night I noticed that my head was all …

Transition Tuesday Yet again

Yesterday was Transition Tuesday. It was a tough day at work.  I am feeling kind of exhausted and very concerned about how things are going at work.  Work lately dominates my mind, which is not a great thing.  But I do have one of those career things, rather than a “job”  so it’s kind of …

Weekly update pre long run….

So It has been a wild and Crazy rest week.  I never really did update on any of my workouts.   Work really interfered at the end of the week.  But lets start with the beginning of the week shall we? So Monday said OFF/run 2 easy…so I was a little unclear…did he want me …

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 …

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 …
