Half Marathon Training: Week Seven
I only finished two runs last week. Not good.
But one of them was a new distance goal completed on one of the coldest days yet. Very good.
Tuesday: Yoga and stretching in lieu of my planned run - right hip was sore
Wednesday: Weekly chiropractic treatment - beat up that right hip!
Thursday: 5.1km in about 41 minutes - treadmill
Friday: Rest - felt like I was getting sick
Saturday: Rest - too damn cold!
Sunday: 14km LSD in just under 2 hours. Very very cold - pictures from this run to come!
Total distance: 19.1km
I've started to write everything on my training plan on the fridge - if I run, I put the distance and time. If I do cross training, I write that down. If I didn't run, I write down why. It's been a great tracking tool. Instead of blank spaces where I didn't run, I have to be accountable as to what I did instead or why I sat on my butt. I think I'll keep it for the scrapbook!
