Sticking to the planPosted: June 6, 2011
This weekend I followed my plan to NOT follow the training plan when things get in the way. The things that got in the way: my hamstrings! NO!!!!
As you can see, the training plan this weekend said 9 at pace and 19 for the long run. First of all… wtf was I thinking when I wrote this plan down?! I guess I’m ready for that mileage again, but I don’t feel it. Saturday was my rainy day abbreviated run, so that was only 4. Then Saturday night I worked at a wedding and probably climbed 30 flights of stairs with heavy trays of food. Cross training?! Finally, on Sunday I was so sore from catering. I had planned to run 7 of my long run with my friend A.Jay who is training for the SF Half July 31st.
Owwwy my tired body and my super ouchy hamstring. I DO NOT want to repeat the painful sciatic nerve damage and pulled hamstring pain that I experiences training for the Disney marathon. So instead of trying to crank out a long run today to make up for this weekend, I decided to just carry on with my schedule and go to yoga. The X on the training plan means cross-training and I always go to yoga for these days.
Other Big News this Weekend!!!
Brendan and I went to get me a camera so that I can be a real blogger. I guess he thought it was lame when I asked him to take a pic with my phone for the blog.
Mine is purple!
I also got a surprise knock on the door today when I was napping!
Do NOT look at my chins in this pic… I was very excited to get my…
CPA (certified public accountant) exam study materials! Now I have something to do besides my sleep, eat, sleep, run, sleep routine! I feel like such a nerd, but I am so excited to have something to work toward besides running. It can’t be the ONLY thing on my schedule! Here I come, Starbucks!
