Last Week - The good and the bad

Monday, April 30, 2012

Ok, so last week was just not a great week for me in relation to being healthy. I barely exercised at all, and I was at the high end, and sometimes over, on calories for most of the week. I'll admit PMS had a LOT to do with this. But I can't blame it all on that. I was just plain lazy last week.

BUT, other than the birthday cake that I had on Saturday for my birthday, Saturday was a relatively healthy day. So that's a good thing.

I ran a 5K Saturday morning, and set a new PR! (30:05). AND I came in 2nd in my age group!! This wasn't a small run - about 150 people ran this one - so coming in 2nd was pretty amazing. I think there were maybe women in my age group. But I can't seem to find the results online at this point. So I'm not 100% on that. For sure there were more than 5. So yay for me coming in 2nd! My knee was sore most of the rest of Saturday, but wasn't too bad yesterday, but my quads are VERY sore still today. But that is muscular sore, not joint sore like my knee was. The course was hilly and I really pushed myself. I did my fastest ever mile for the first mile of that race - under 9 minutes. And the rest of the race was still pretty quick for me. Especially considering I average around 11:20 min miles during my regular training runs. So I pushed this one quite a lot faster than usual.

Anyhow, I guess that's about the summary of my week. It ended relatively well. But certainly could have been better in general. Pushing myself to get back to it this week. Really need to buckle down!! AND I have to get started training for the half! October will be here before I know it!
