Monday 2/11/13 - Plan: RUN easy 4 miles at 11:16 pace. Did: RUN- 2 x 1600 repeats plus wu/cd. 4 miles in 40 minutes. The 2 mile repeats were at just over a 9mm pace, which pretty much rocked. I decided since I wouldn't be able to do this workout on Wednesday, I'd swap out the easy run for the harder one.
Tuesday 2/12/13 - Plan: CROSS TRAIN. Did: BIKE - I just did an easy 10 miles on my basement trainer in about 44 minutes while watching TV.
Wednesday 2/13/13 - Plan: RUN intervals. Did: NOTHING
Thursday 2/14/13 - Plan: CROSSTRAIN. Did: NOTHING
Friday 2/15/13 - Plan: REST. Did: WALK - I walked around the mall with my girl and then needed to come home and take a nap. (WTF happened with that font? Sorry - no clue.)
Saturday 2/16/13 - Plan: RUN "long" run of 6 miles at 11:14 pace. Did: RUN - since I wasn't sure how my body was going to feel running just 3 days after surgery. I ran 2 miles on the TM, 2 miles on the track inside, and then 2 more on the TM. It felt great and I ran the entire thing in my Newtons. Finished in 1:06:46 (11:07 pace) and really felt great the rest of the day.
Sunday 2/17/13 - Plan: BIKE Did: REST I still wasn't feeling 100% and my eating this week after surgery has been minimal, so I figured it was in my best interest to not work out today and work on fueling my body.
Obviously, this wasn't a great week training-wise. I missed several workouts and did a very poor job of fueling my body after surgery. (I had managed to "gain" 3 pounds from surgery and my Sunday morning, I'd lost those 3 pounds plus another 2.4 from what I weighed last Wednesday. Not exactly ideal and it will be interesting to see what my official weigh-in is tomorrow.)
To those of you who'd like to vote, I'm still working to win a new medal display from Allied Medal Displays. Could you please head over here and vote for my picture? I'd really appreciate it. (My odds of winning have gone down quite a bit, but I'd still appreciate the votes.) You can vote once a day! Thanks so much!
