Week 6? Wowsa, Next time I blink it'll be April. I've started to slack a little bit with my cross training this week. That would be fine, if I added a day of running, but I didn't. I can't survive off of a running less program unless I up the cross training. Next week will be a bit dodgy because of family obligations and traveling for grad school. But hopefully I'll be able to make it work.
Highlight from class: My bad ass instructor- shes legit tough (makes Jillian Michaels look like a phoney) told me I was awesome. Huge Win!
Planned: 4 Mile run
It was raining buckets. I felt worn down, so I swapped my rest day.
Actual: 4 mile run. Returned to corning preserve for a 4 mile run. I was still feeling pretty worn down (there are some continuing complications with my ulcertative colitis) I got it done, but I didn't put a whole lot of effort into it.
Planned: 5 Mile run
Actual: 5 Mile Run
This was the first time I've run back to back days, so I was a little nervous. My ankle felt fine. But it was cold. I've already complained about that once, so feel free to read it again here.
Planned: 5 Mile walk/Yoga
Actual: 2.5 walk
I can't remember why I didn't find somewhere to walk outdoors, but I was so bored on the treadmill that I couldn't stand it for another 2.5. I left the gym well before the yoga class.
Planned: 10 Miles
Actual: 10 Miles
First double digit runs of my training plan. I felt pretty good, I could have sped up my average pace a bit, but I'm comfortable I'm on the right track. A full recap is here.
Spin, hahahaha. I spent the rest of Saturday at a parade usually with an adult beverage in hand. I didn't do a damn thing on Sunday.
Honestly I was just skating by this week. I completed my runs but without really pushing myself. I have another busy week this week, but then will be able to do more than just going through the motions. But overall, another solid week.
