Wowzers this was a rough week. I was supposed to log 24 miles this week and only got to 18. I missed my 3 mile run Tuesday because the stroller was in Kurtis' car (which was a shame because it was a whopping 70 degrees that day!) and today I only got in 5 miles and just stepped off the treadmill because honestly I was bored. I can't even show you my weekly progress on my Nike+ program because I didn't get in my full 24 miles.
How do I feel you ask?
Okay to be completely honest I'm totally bummed out with myself that I didn't make this week's mile goals. However my body is completely exhausted. Lola is going through a horrible sleep regression (I'll update you on this soon) and I feel even more tired than I did when she was a newborn. I know the 18 miles I did log is still great, but it's not what I was aiming for with my training.
My Goals for this Race:
My plan is to still be able to run the entire race - snail speed if needed. As long as I'm outside, I'm really fine when it comes to distance. Well, unless I have a 30+ lb stroller and 834928394 hills and inclines. But I'm confident I'll be able to reach this goal.
What I Want to Do This Week:
I'm hoping to get a few more runs outside - especially Friday's because it's a big 9 miler. This week's focus is on speed but I'm aiming for endurance since that's my own personal goal. Oh yeah, I'd love to get in a full four hours of sleep this week too...
That's all folks! Until next week...I shall keep running!
