Crazy Week

Posted by katrinwolfe on Mar 5, 2011 1:58:18 PM

It has been a crazy week.  I have some good news but I am not going to announce it until next week.  I just have to finalize some stuff but I am so excited.

 

The week was crazy because of work and life.  I was tired a lot but not a sick tired.  I also tried to push five days of work into four.  I didn't want to take off Friday but I also didn't want to spend all day in the office.

 

I was so tired all this week.  I rarely was up past 9pm all week.  The only night I was up late was Tuesday and that is because I have to close at work.  I think last weeks running took a toll and my body.  I was just allowing myself to heal so to speak.  Even last night (Friday) I went to bed early.  I went out to dinner and a movie with friends.  As soon as I came home I was in bed.  The only good thing about early to bed is early to rise.  I like being able to get up easy in the early AM.

 

I was glad to have a "off week" or a micro-cycle.  My long run was seven miles.  I had to rough spots th is week.  My run on Friday of six miles was tough.  I did it on the treadmill early in the morning before work.  I wanted to get into work early so I could get on the road to come home to Johnstown.  I had some stuff planned for the weekend, and I did not want to be at work all day Friday.  I decided to do my run on the treadmill since I was already at work.  I was never able to get a good pace going.  I struggled to get the six miles in.

 

My long run was seven miles.  The only big thing about the run was I rolled my ankle about half way through.  I stepped on a rock.  Some crazy language came out and I had to walk for about 1/2 mile.  I did get the run finished.  I was also able to get it in before the major ran that is in Western PA for the weekend started.  My left foot is a little tight this evening but nothing major.

 

I am currently looking for a water belt for my long runs.  A lot of places do not carrying them in the store.  I guess I am going to have to order one online.  I don't like having extra stuff on my body but I know I need to have some type of hydration regularly now that I am in the longer runs.  I tried to do the place water out before the run but I can't guarantee they will be safe or that will be my exact route.  I have definitely had to change routes during a run.  I also need to get the carb gels or beans for the long runs.

 

Oh well the whole thing has been relatively fun.  I hope it continues that way.
