Weekly RUNdown: Deflated But Not Defeated
Hey there! I hope you had a great weekend!
I had a pretty good weekend. Adam and I went to see Trainwreck and I liked it more than I thought I would. Amy Schumer annoys the heck out of me, but I thought LeBron was actually quite funny!
The movie cheered me up after a crappy run. I felt really deflated after I took my final stride. I had 13 miles on the schedule but I only made it to the halfway point before calling it a day.
In my training vlog I talk about how my left knee was feeling sore and achey. It honestly felt fine during my 5 mile (treadmill) run on Saturday and I haven’t twisted it or anything.
I’m not sure what is causing the soreness except perhaps general marathon fatigue.
I’ve been lucky that I haven’t had any other ailments cause me to miss a training run so far, so even though yesterday’s run was a failure it’s one that I feel like I can live with. I’m icing it up and I hope that by Tuesday I’ll be able to get in a spectacular BIRTHDAY RUN!
Here’s my weekly RUNdown:
Tuesday: 1 mile w/up, 5 x 1000 with 400 m recoveries, 1 mile c/down
Wednesday: 4 miles easy
Thursday: 7 mile pace run (5 miles @ 13:40)
Saturday: 5 miles easy
13 8 miles easy
34 29 miles
I’m really bummed that the 13 miler didn’t go as planned because otherwise I think this was a pretty awesome week!
I guess I’m really feeling deflated because I headed into Sunday thinking I was going to end the week on a really high note. Womp womp.
I need to put yesterday’s crappy run behind me because this is a week to celebrate! My mom officially moves to South Florida TODAY and tomorrow is my birthday! I don’t have anything special planned but I’m sure Adam and I will get up to something.
We were supposed to be on vacation this week, but due to some conflicts we’ve rearranged our schedule and will be going later this month. Have I mentioned that I CANNOT WAIT?!!! We’ve never been to the Dominican Republic before but I know it will be a lot of fun – and I’ll get to add another country to my list of places I’ve run!
Happy August everyone! 🙂
What do you do to get over a bad run?
Anyone else have an August birthday??
