Someone pinch me. I actually stuck to my training plan for the entire week! I shocked even myself!
This is the first week since starting my Dumbo training plan 15 weeks ago that I actually completed every run. Sad, but true. I really think it has to do with hanging up my schedule and seeing how few weeks we have to go.
Tues: 2 miles
Thurs: 2 miles
Fri: 3 miles
Sun: 12.1 miles
I've been diligent with my daily push ups and sit ups and I'm seeing a difference already. My weekday runs were pretty easy. If I'm anticipating a particularly stressful or long day, I like to run before work to clear my head and put me in a better, more relaxed mood.
My long run on Sunday was just that- long. We took too long getting out of the house after eating breakfast, so my stomach was growling just 4 miles in. Clif Shot Bloks got me to mile 10, but then I started getting cramps in my side. On top of that, even before I started running, I felt a twinge in my leg (probably due to not stretching regularly). I ended up just running through the pain, since it just felt like a muscle giving me grief. My leg is sore, but no more than what I expected for running 12 miles. My pace was slower than I had hoped, but on the bright side, we got to enjoy this spectacular view.
How was your week? Are you able to stick to your training plans?
