Wow. Last week was really hard. 44 miles total and that never again long run really took it out of me. Needless to say, I was sore and tired. Spent the rest of the weekend with ice bags and compression gear.
I'm not sure why I haven't posted in the last few day, (wait, yeah I do. I felt like such a complaining baby on Saturday I wanted to give y'all a break) but here's a little recap
Su- nothing. slept for 15 hours plus a brunch buffet.
M- 7 easy.
T- 9 miles with 3X 1mile repeats. The repeats were alright, not as fast as previous attempts but I stayed in the high 7's.
W- scheduled rest day. Super stressful day at work, finished counting those stupid little nuclei - maybe I can move on to something fun now? no? ok.
Th- 9 miles with 3 @ under 8:30. The rest under 9min/mile. It was a good run. I'm excited that it was some-what consistent.
I feel really tired and slow and achy. It might be because I haven't done any cross training in about a month. I haven't kept up with my dumb-at-home-squat-routine.I need to incorporate more lunges and push-ups into my life and stretching and yoga and recovery.
Also, I'm stressed out about life. My thesis is due in about 4 weeks and I still have so much to do!!
