Marathon Training WK4 - IN Training Shirt TOO
Wednesday, February 05, 2014
Last week's running went well, I went back to my usual schedule and the weather was actually fairly decent for my long run on Saturday. Friday night though I came down with some sort of cold symptoms which made for a dismal aftermath on Saturday's run. I ended up taking DayQuil for most of the day which made me woozy but I still did it! The only thing that I did not do which was really disappointing is that I did not get my sorry butt to the gym on Sunday for my cross training day. I have excuses for that namely that DH ended up working yet again unexpectedly on Sunday which did not leave much time and then before you knew it, it was time for SuperBowl. I had family over and all that but since I have been fighting to get back on track, my eating did not go overboard and I think that I am finally starting to see the scale move in the right direction. However, this is now like 4 or so weeks which is a serious reminder that those times in which I think that it is okay to just slack and eat junk it is so not worth it when it takes this long to get the d@mn pounds off, note to self: be not so stupido in the future.
Highlight of my training is I got in my bright orange KeyBank Marathon IN TRAINING running shirt in the mail and it was worth the $18 that I spent! It definitely put a little umph in my step on Saturday and I will be sure to wear it for each of my long runs during my training. Have to take a pic soon but I have to bug DH to do it and it seems he works every Saturday morning now too. *sigh* Notice: theme about this unexpected weekend work - but hey, at least he is gainfully employed.
Anyhow, sticking to the boring routine of this blogging action, here are the stats and goal accountability:
Monday - OFF
Tuesday - 6.5 mph, treadmill run
Wednesday - 57 minutes, garmin died but proud as it was snowing!
Thursday - 3M run outside, 26:40
Friday - 3M run treadmill, 25:22
Saturday - 13M, 1:54:09, not bad at all!
Sunday - OFF, should have been a gym day :(
