Well, I/we (we if I include all of you) made it to week 17 of my 50K training. I didn’t die. I didn’t kill anyone. I don’t feel like I have any injuries. I didn’t complete all my weekly miles, but I did complete another marathon distance training slog. My weight seems stable at it’s 1 pant size smaller size. I even tried on my swim suit from last year and it is loose in some places.
I call all that a training win.
|Not as many miles as I should have had!|
Monday – Rest I went shopping. Yay for shopping! I bought my first Moving Comfort bra (and panty) which I thought I would love the bras way more then I do/did. I bought the Vixen but I wanted the Jubralee to be way more flattering. I may go back and get it anyways because it is adjustable instead of a pullover.
Tuesday – 4 scheduled – 2 miles done. Mixed this up with my intervals. I am enjoying my Tuesday interval work.
Wednesday – 12 scheduled – 5 miles done. A mid-week long run isn’t really working out for me. I can’t tell if I am being sabotaged by myself or giving in to the lack of support from others (ahem BF) but working out for 2-3 hours before work and then being on my feet all night has not been easy.
Thursday – 4 scheduled – 3 miles done. I was lifting the weights pretty hard and I was enjoying it. Like really enjoying it. I need some new weights in different sizes.
Friday – Rest I can get my rest days in too easily. Oh yes, I CAN do that.
Saturday – 26 scheduled – 26.46 miles done. Last real long training run. Everything hurt from 3 miles on. I changed my diet to get more potassium-rich foods in me, hydrating like a beast, eating more unprocessed foods. Grumble on muscle crampies.
|I finished 20 minutes slower then what I did 2 weeks ago!|
Sunday – 10 scheduled – 0 miles done. I was sore. Tired. I iced more then I had all week. I went to the movies and spent time with a friend.
With this training plan, I gave myself an extra week of training. For injury, illness, laziness, extra taper, whatever. I didn’t want to freak out by falling behind or being unable to do this or that on one week. This week was my biggest week of training out of all of it and I am not sure if I just do a week of whatever mileage I feel like doing, of just have a 3-week long taper. I do have 4 races next month, which include Robie and my 50K. What do you think I should do? What sort of sports bra do you have?
