This will be a quick read. It was another week plagued by rest due to injury, but I'm not going to dwell on missed workouts. I still managed to run my 2nd fastest half marathon this past weekend as a training run, so even though the week overall was pretty minimal as far as workouts went, it ended up ok. (On the days listed as "NOTHING" I usually did stretching and rolling but I don't log those.) One day this week I also got in to see the massage therapist at the chiro's office and that hurt like Hell, but I don't remember which day I went and I don't think that really counts as exercise.
Monday 4/22/13 - Plan RUN 4 MI - Did NOTHING
Tuesday 4/23/13 - Plan SWIM (:30) - Did NOTHING
Wednesday 4/24/13 - Plan RUN 4 MI tempo - Did BIKE 8 slow miles on the trainer.
Thursday 4/25/13 - Plan RUN 4 MI/STRENGTH (:30) - Did NOTHING
Friday 4/26/13 - Plan REST - Did REST - Plus some more stretching and rolling
Saturday 4/27/13 - Plan RUN 13.1 miles - Did RUN 13.1 miles in 2:20:29. Finished my 7th half marathon, the Rivertown Races Half Marathon, on a very hilly and hot course. This race was definitely a huge learning experience and taught me a bit about how little race results should matter. You can read my race recap here.
Sunday 4/28/13 - Plan BIKE (:60) - did NOTHING but stretching, rolling, heat, ice and walking around the mall like Frankenstein with my girl.
I need the next 4 weeks to go much better than the last 2 weeks have gone. While I've had a couple of really great half marathons in there (close enough to qualify for Half Fanatics status - but I'm waiting to apply until I decide whether to throw in a 6th half in 6 months this June to get up to the next level), from a training aspect, these 2 weeks have really sucked. I'm not beating myself up over it though. It is what it is.
