It's been a draining week. Physically, mentally and emotionally. Whew. I'm tuckered out. No worries, I am fine. It's just been a wild week.
That low mileage you see over on the right isn't helping any. Of course I AM trying to get my mileage down to focus on cross training and speed, not distance. But as a distance runner, that is hard to see. Yeep!
Wednesday morning was WWoW. We had a great workout of 200's. We only did 8 but my quads are still feeling it!
47, 47, 47, 48, 49, 48, 47, 45 Those are seconds. And no, I didn't capture the fractional seconds. I still don't know how to use my watch properly and record all this. So I just remembered the whole seconds.
The bottom really fell out of my week right after my workout when I got home. We won't go into that. It's over now and Hubs and I are finally relaxing after all the drama. It's so great to have Hubs by my side to lean on. He's such a good partner to me! I am abundantly blessed with that man.
Thursday I of course ran with my group for my coaching gig. I introduced them to Fartleks. Oh how I love fartleks. I hope they do too now! We each took turns deciding how far to sprint. After my exhausting track workout the day before this one really took it out of me! But that didn't stop me from heading to the pool afterwards to get in one last swim before Saturday.
Met up with Bahama Mama and ooh boy, that cool water felt so good after a hard workout in the heat.
I really focused on slowing down my stroke and breathing right. And it felt GREAT! I think I've been swimming too fast. Not in a Michael Phelps kind of way, but more of a "I hope I can get to the other side so that I don't drown" kind of way.
I can totally do this. I won't rock it, but I will survive. (que the Cake cover of Gloria's song)
So, I love Bath & Body Works wallflowers. Mmm, scented. Did you know that they now come in cute colors??? Well they do and guess who snatched up pink?!?! Now how cute is that?Today I head out to pick up my packet for the race. I'm still not sure what to wear. I've got my rainbow throw up suit of course. Planning to throw some shorts on over it. But...not sure what to do about the whole, er, support issue. Went to Target to find a cute sports bra to wear under my suit and came home with these babies instead. Now I need to get my transition bag packed. And find out how to get to the lake. And what time to leave. And, and, and...
This time tomorrow I'll be a triathlete! (ha, hardly, well, sorta)
Off to foam roll my quad issues away!
