I’m having a lot of fun skiing, snow shoeing, and swimming, but I’ll confess, I’ve been slacking on running lately.
This was my workout recap from last week:
Sunday: Skiing at A-Basin… hey, I did some moguls… that’s gotta be good for the quads…
Monday: Sleep – 1, Erin – 0
Tuesday: 6 mile run
Wednesday: 15 min warm up, 4 800s on the track, 15 min cool down (~5 mile run)
Thursday: 1600m swim
Friday: Sleep – 2, Erin – 0
Saturday: Snow shoeing… not exactly the long run I was planning on
This is my workout recap from this week so far:
Sunday: Sleep – 3, Erin – 0
Monday: 4.25 mile run
Tuesday: Sleep 4, Erin – 0
Wednesday: 15 min warm up, 4 800s on the track, 10 min cool down (~5 mile run)
Total number of runs in the past 11 days? 4. Oops.
My Cleveland Marathon training plan has me running 4 times a week, and I haven’t even been doing that. My bad. I have a 9 mile long run scheduled this weekend. I know I can handle that, but I should be more disciplined about getting out of bed and running in the morning. On the plus side, my knee/IT band hasn’t been bothering me so that’s really good!
I still haven’t registered for the Cleveland marathon, nor have I bought my plane ticket back home for it yet… Honestly, I think part of me is still hesitant and nervous that my knee pain is going to flare up again and kill my dream of running another 26.2. If my long runs can get up to at least 15 or 16 without significant pain, I’m still going to go for it. But if it flares up before then, well, I might have to reconsider the experience… But shh, we won’t talk about that.
