WEEK 7: 26 Mi
So really it wasn't until this past Sunday that I realized that I am barely adhering to my running plan at all. Now that I am just about a week away, I think it is time to buckle down and get serious. Despite not really following the smartcoach plan, I do feel like I am on the right track for a solid race at the Stockade-athon next month.
Anyhow, here's what my week looked like:
Monday: Treadmill 3 miles @ 10'27 & 45 minute pilates class
Wednesday: 6 miles @ 10'43.
I was so sleepy and did not want to run. I was able to force myself out onto the the bike path and shuffle along for the first mile at a 12 minute pace. After that I sort of found a grove, until my calf started to bother me again. I need to pay more attention to see if it makes a difference with shoes. Unfortunately I didn't hit 4 miles within the goal pace.
Saturday: Hiked Sawteeth Mountain 14 miles RT.
I had 4 "rest" days. Which I think is 2 too many. I could definitely stand to be a bit more active on those other days. I need to get into the swing of things with school & life. I've nailed Mondays, now it's time to figure out the rest of the week. I also didn't do a long run this weekend, but hopefully all the hiking I'm doing will help on the alleged hills I've heard of on the race course.
