Bayshore Half Marathon Training: week 5

We're just going to call this a week interrupted.  I had a little outpatient procedure done on Wednesday (no worries, I'm totally fine) that pretty much put the training on hold for the week.  Luckily, it's early enough that it shouldn't matter.

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!

Is anybody out there?
