Monday: Planned easy 6 Reality: easy 6!
Tuesday: rest Reality: rested
Wednesday: 6 Tempo Reality: I ran about 7 miles, but they were hard! The humidity was killing me and it wasn’t easy to keep a tempo pace. My shorts were wringing wet.
Thursday: Easy 6 Reality: Five and change with the Abster. Pace was decent.
Friday: cross Reality: Drank too many beers after work and went to bed destroyed from the work week.
Saturday: 13 miler Reality: This run sucked and I don’t know why. When I got about six miles from home I seriously wanted to cry. My legs weren’t hurting, I just had a sort of all over body tiredness. It wasn´t a hangover either. Just a weird sort of burn out. It was cloudy and super windy, so I can’t even blame the heat. Culprit: lack of sleep throughout the week, I think. Please tell me what you think! Have you had failed runs like this, where you just sort of turn off?
Sunday: long bike ride with Charles Reality: Charles went to visit his grandmother and I went to the beach. Cross-training was a 20-minute swim in the very clean, but freezing cold sea!
Week 4 Plan:
This won’t be easy because I’m traveling to Venice for work, but I’ll hope for the best.
Monday: easy 6.
Wednesday: Venice, probably 0
Thursday: Venice, probably 0
Friday: Return from Venice and try for a 10 miler in the afternoon
Saturday: 15 mile hike with friends.
Sunday: easy 10
