& yep.. I'm still creeping along.
I feel so 'fake' when I say training because I don't run the whole time due to knee & back injuries. Due to pain & age
... stupid pain & age.
|My same reaction to my body falling apart|
... & a tribute to the Olympics :)
But I'm still moving & I still want to cross the finish line in April & get a medal & say I did another half marathon... no matter how I do it.
So last week's training.
Monday - 2.25 miles (3 min Walk/1 min Run x 8)
Treadmill Run - had to jump off & on because I was checking on Sydney who came down the steps. This was before we took her to the vet later that evening & found out the bad news about her :(
Sleep: Didn't turn it on
Tuesday - Cross Train - Firm Video
This was an OLD school video. The kind with leg warmers & leotards that cut up over the thigh. Maybe a few high tops & head bands too. But I enjoy some old school work outs every now & then. Its a work out without planks & burpees :)
Sleep: 5:57 (No sleep after the news about our dog)
Wednesday - Rest Day
I don't normally do a rest day but after getting the news of Sydney Monday & having to go to the pharmacy after work to get Sydney's medicine, PLUS snow & ice on the way home, I just wanted to do nothing. Nothing I did.
Thursday - 2.20 miles (3 min Walk/1 min Run x 8)
Treadmill Run - Nothing exciting...
Friday - Rest Day
This is usually my rest day, but I thought I'd work out since I missed Wednesday - but Friday, I'm always more tired on that day then any other day. Plus, I was just ready to sit back & watch the opening of the Olympics... & catch up on The Originals. Priorities.
Saturday - Long Run Day - 5.08 miles (4 min walk/1 min run)
Hate doing long miles on the treadmill. It burns my feet. But it was in the 20's, ice on the roads & snow falling... its never ending winter. But it was OK actually. The Olympics & an hour of an old episode of Friends made it much easier.
Sunday - Rest Day -
Church day followed by small group... followed by a day of lazy.
The snow & cold will do that
I will say, I hate the walking- the way it takes me almost an hour & a half to do 5 miles...
makes me feel like I'm a loser in a way.
But - BUT - I'm still doing the miles... AND the most important part, my injuries aren't getting worse. I feel them & they nip at me, but they're not making me stop or fall apart completely.
So I'll stick with this plan
Loser or not...
