Wow, I can’t believe that it is week 3 of my training already. My goal race that I am training for has its registration open up next week, so time is just ticking away.
Sunday – Rest day and I rested. 🙂
|My favorite day!|
Monday – I did mention last week how I am really ready for spring and the warmer weather. Today was one of those days. I was going to brave the outside with the snow that has fallen over the weekend. But I didn’t. I suffered on the treddy for my 3 miles in my cold, dungeon of a basement. Downside is that I took my TV away from my treadmill and moved it to another room so I could watch the Super Bowl. But I have not put it back in front of my treddy, so it was just me and my treddy hanging out for 3 miles at an incline.
Tuesday – I wanted to get my 4 mile trot done outside when I finished my errands, but I just wasn’t feeling it. I waited and waited to get it done, putting it off – I’ll do it tomorrow – but I didn’t. About 7:30pm I sucked it up and went down into the dungeon basement of the treadmill. I pounded out my 4 miles, slowly at first at a 3% incline, but sped up and lowered my incline at the last mile.
Wednesday – I had 3 miles to do today. With the weather being what it is, I had the plan that I was going to run outside in the big puffy flakes. When I got to the path where I was going to run, it started to rain. I was not dressed for the rain. So I dropped my other half for a an early valentine’s massage and went and completed my errands. I had the best intentions of getting on the treadmill when I got home
Thursday – Valentine’s day. My planned rest day and rested. I had another disappointing dinner at a “fancy” restaurant in town. It was a very long 2.5 hours of sitting for appetizer, entree and desert. I did more sitting starting at the wall waiting for each item to be brought out then eating. If I had not made the reservation under my name, I would have just flat out walked out without paying. Customer service and food quality was almost total garbage. (The asparagus was really good. The rest, so not worth the $90 we paid for all of it.)
Friday – This was to be my long run day. I didn’t want to do my long run, and just made up for run I didn’t do Wednesday. I just hopped on the treadmill while on the phone with my BFF who had to put his elderly dog down this week and is grieving hard. 3 pretty good treddy miles done!
Saturday – I had my annual Team Beef meeting today and spent the day with friends out of town. I met a couple of the Idaho Beef Council chairmen at the meeting, along with the Cowboy Ninja. He was a really nice guy with a lovely family. They all sat at the table that we seated ourselves at too.
How was your week of training? How is the weather where you are at? This winter weather is a totally bumming me out. I want sun and warm!
