that time I forgot to drink water

Posted Sep 13 2011 7:30am

I’m sitting at the kitchen table, eating a bowl of oatmeal, thinking it’s Friday.

Uh, it’s only Tuesday. That’s bad. How does a person get Tuesday & Friday confused?

 

I forgot to make up a plan for this week, so I’m gonna whip one up real quick:

plan it out then work it out

Monday: 4mi
Tuesday: 5mi
Wed: XT
Thurs: 4mi
Fri: Rest
Sat: 9mi
Sunday: rest/recovery run,

Likely total: 22mi

 

Let’s go over last week’s plan:

Monday: xtrain – upper body  I can’t remember, and I can’t see find if I documented it anywhere.. “if it isn’t documented, it didn’t happen.” right Nurse friends?
Tuesday- 5mi   3mi on the treadmill + upper body work out
Wednesday: 3mi  5.6 miles outside
Thursday: 4mi   no run . met up with a friend for dinner
Friday: Rest or xtrain   resting up for that big 8 miler
Saturday: 8-9mi w/ running group  tough 8 miler with running group
Sunday: 3mi recovery   ha ha, yah right. didn’t happen

total actual miles 17.something  not exactly stellar

 

Daily work out

I did start off this week’s plan with a good run. Last night when I got off work, I hung around the house for a little while in hopes that it would cool off a little when the sun started to set.

It kind of worked. There was a little bit of a breeze when I went out, but the sun was still glaring down hard. The weather man says the humidity was low, but I couldn’t get a deep breath to save my life. I had to stop a few times so that I could get a good deep breath. That is just annoying.

4mi_9_12_11

way to fast in the first mile, and then everything after that was just all over the place. No knee pain, so that’s always a good thing. My quads were super tight during the last mile.

My chest hurt for the last 1/2mile. I think my HR was way to high during that run. I considered wearing my HRM, but I don’t like that thing so I didn’t. I think I’ll wear it on a few runs this week to see how it goes. ……and because I’m a real moron, I didn’t drink any water all day yesterday. I don’t even know how that is possible, but I didn’t.

Once I hit 4 miles I did 1/4mi walk around the block to lower my heart rate. When I got home I stretched for a few minutes before going upstairs and falling on the couch. I had a banana smoothie and called it dinner. 

Let’s hope today’s 5mile run is a little more stable.

Today’s Goal: drink more water
