Happy Sunday everyone!
How has your week been? Any awesome training? Any Awesome events?
I regret to tell you all that my week of training was kind of regular, like always. No events, Nothing particularly awesome. I’m fighting a bit of a feeling of despair.
Because I am an adult, I know that this feeling comes and goes. When smack in the middle of it though, it’s unpleasant and it is hard to believe that it will pass. Plus, it’s a bit hard for others to understand. Like, I’m really battling this out, and I come in the gym and my friend is there…she wants to complain about not getting a parking spot close to the door because of a soccer tournament. She is fired up about this, and I am like feeling like I am sinking into a mudpit of misery. So I kind of kept to myself a lot.
So I am feeling lousy. But the week was designed really well. I could hug my coach (but I probably won’t…) Every time I would think “oh wow, I’m pretty sore, I don’t want to run when I’m this sore” there was suddenly a swim on the workout. It was like Ha ha ha, the workout was designed for me…(which duh, it was).
17.5 miles this week. It seems like nothing but I admit that it has been somewhat draining on me.
2 swim sessions which adds in about 3 miles of swimming
and the Bike… about 54 bike miles total.
So since I am so down on myself…I need to recognize progress:
Tempo run on Wednesday…I know it should be on Tuesday so I can report “tempo tuesdays” but whatever, my tempo is usually wednesdays. I did not want to run it and found that I am capable of running below my 5K PR pace…(well for 2 miles).
FIrst speedwork session of the year.
Executed perfectly. learned some new strength exercises.
Had a bit of fun cycling with a friend.
Hoping my persistent bad mood lifts soon…I have a feeling it may.
