Uh it sure doesn't seem like I've been training for 3 weeks already, where has the time gone? Seriously I saw that on my nikerunning.com page and was like "no way, it hasn't been that long." So I went back and counted, counted again, counted out loud then looked at the calendar and was like...whooo its been 3 weeks, only 9 more to go! I wanna create a countdown clock for either here and/or my facebook page, anyone know how to do that?
Ok lets re-cap the last few runs; Sunday it was 6 miles and today it was 2 with 4X150 meter sprints after the run. Well Saturday I finally got my head where it needed to be I said after my remote I MUST go home and just veg. And that is exactly what I did, with a hot man and furry dog and season 1 of LOST and it was heavenly. I believe Matties words said it best "Why did it take us so long to do this?" IDK (I don't know) and I hope we do it more frequently so I can stay focus. That and not working out on Saturday made the world of difference I ran 6 miles Sunday outside about 9am and it was a sinch I rocked it, felt great and wasn't tired in anyway during or after the run. My breakdown Mile 1-8:03 (holy cow that's fast for me), 2-9:30, 3&4-9:28, 5-9:44 and 6-9:11 total 57:46 average pace was 9:37. IDK today's because I haven't loaded my run yet. But I ran before I taught RPM and then did some weights for about 40 minutes after again I feel great, amazing what getting sleep will do. I am a bit sore now my legs are tight but really its that TOM (time of month) for me and the back pain and cramps are overwhelming right now so that's about all I can feel.
So normally I do my WI (weigh in) on Saturdays but I didn't make it this Saturday because I didn't get out of bed in time, go figure. So I did my WI today and I am happy to say I lost 2.2lbs so that finally takes me to 30lbs lost! For the past 6 weeks I've been yo-yoing between 136.2-139, today I WI at 135.8! About freaking time! Just gotta stay focused and keep my head in it. This will be my last weekend where I am off my game (cuz its my birthday on Saturday so it's allowed) but I will not be to far off but I will have fun w/o guilt!
On deck tomorrow: 6 miles, 1-2 of easy running 5x800 meters at tempo and 4x200 meters at a fast effort with 1-3 minutes of easy running between intervals...hmmm thanks Nike that sounds confusing as can be at least I know I wont get bored!
