My Weekly Training Log {August 25-31, 2013}

This week is my rest week.  I was plotting along on my 20k plan, but now that I have decided to run a marathon in December, next week I am jumping ship from this plan.  I have my training laid out for the next 17 weeks and I will have to start officially on September 9.  Yippee.  I guess I am one of those weird people that has to have a goal.  I have to have a challenge…

Sunday, I downloaded a tabata timer and set myself up a little full body circuit.  I have no idea what tabata means, I guess I should google that.  The circuit wasn’t challenging enough, so I increased the set times and will try again.

On Monday, I ran 5 miles.  I really did not want to run.  I was feeling hormonal and just did not want to do anything.  I ran, it was ok.

On Wednesday, I had all those nasty hormones flushed out of my system and actually enjoyed my run.

Friday, I was plugging away on inside stuff all morning and I just needed to get outside.  I went for a quick walk.  It was soooo hot.  I had planned on walking an hour, but after 30 minutes, I was drenched and getting sunburned, so I called it a day after only 30 minutes.  It was enough to clear my head and provide a refocused afternoon.

Saturday I just had to complete a quick 4 miler to wrap up the week.  It was hot and slow, but oh well.

Sorry, I am not more inspiring this week.  I suppose I just need to wrap this month up and start September up on a better foot.  The great thing about life, is that you get to start over again each day.  Tomorrow morning will be better.  I will get my head right and be more inspiring.  I have a lot of fun things planned in September and I can’t wait to get started.

What do you think?
