I'm so stinking proud of myself that I had to share. I know you guys are hard asses like me so you'll understand. Here's my Monday. Keep in mind THIS is NOT normal for me:
5am woke up
6am kids up
7:30 back in bed
10:00am still sleeping
10:15 came down for a massive calorie intake and back to bed
11:00 watched the Biggie and Tupac documentary on Amazon Prime
12:00 thought about running
1:00 ate more
2:00 got pedicure
3:00 kid stuff (on auto pilot)
5pm thought about running but ate froyo on the couch and laughed
7pm Was gonna run but said Fuck it!
This was seriously the coolest day ever. I NEVER do this. I've had time to think about it and this is how THAT happened.
This week was a cut back week. I did 100 miles. But I ran in yak tax, on treadmills, on ice, I stressed out WAY too much. I went bonkers on my long run and actually pulled the plug 16 miles in because I couldn't do the workout in the conditions. My body was beat. My legs ached. I thought I ripped my right ankle off. I was mentally spent.
I am a perfectionist when it comes to my training. I give 100% to every footstep. However this week I hopped laterally, jumped and slide for 100 miles. I started getting sloppy in traffic. I needed to take a day off. The whole day felt like indigestion. I'm blogging about running so I don't grab my garmin and bolt out of the house. Sigh.
But I know tomorrow I'll feel fresh and ready to roll. Hell, I may even have a normal BMI, haha.
I hope your training is going well. Here are some randoms from the week. Thanks for all your awesome comments! Rock on guys!
