Thursday I took a rest day. It was one of those days that it was just hard to work up the motivation to run.
Friday I put in 4 miles on the treadmill. I felt good and even added in a few fartleks for some speed training.
The plan for Saturday was to go to the gym and get in a nice workout but seeing as I stayed out until 2am the night before for my friend's birthday party...that didn't happen. So Saturday was yet another rest day for me. I really don't think I left the couch much at all that day.
Sunday was scheduled to be an 8-miler. My left knee is bothering me. Not so much that I am in pain but enough to take the day off from running. It's hard for me not to run today as this is the first "nice" day we have had this year. It is perfect running weather but with my Half Marathon 3 weeks from today I am being very cautious.
So I would have to say that overall this past week did not go as well as the first one. I did log 18 total miles this week compared to 20 last week. I am looking forward to a fresh start next week.
My blog will follow my running journey up to and through my 1st Marathon... Chicago 2010! You will read about my inspirations, PRs (hopefully!), and of course my struggles. So feel free to share your stories as well!
