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.
