I missed my training recap of Week 11 somewhat not coincidentally.
It was a bad week.
Monday, September 1, I spent our Labor Day out on the trails for almost 9 miles of awesomeness.
Then I didn’t run the rest of the week.
It was just one of those weeks where life happened, excuses happened, anything that could/would deter me from running happened….
By Saturday, the guilt had creeped in and I got myself on the treadmill for 10.
Total mileage for the week: 18.8
I was determined to have a better week and I felt like I did.
Monday, I got on the treadmill and ran a 5k x2 benefitting a virtual run a #RunEatTweetAZ buddy had organized. She was helping raise money for her friend who is battling cancer. I decided to run my 5k and run a 5k for my IRun4 little guy for a 6.2
I was back with my run club on Tuesday and one of my running buddies pushed me to negative split and finish with a fast mile.
Speed work on Wednesday and I was feeling the heat and running consecutive days. I still managed negative splits and a last fast mile though
Thursday and Friday I took rest. (I’m supposed to cross train on Thursdays….yeah….)
Saturday I had 16 miles on my agenda. I hadn’t really long runned in a while and was starting to feel super anxiety. I needed to long run.
I woke up at insane o’clock in the morning and got ‘er done.
Surprisingly, I felt relatively good. I did start to feel my body begin to crumble towards the end of the run though and I had a flashback to my first marathon where I hit the wall at that exact mileage. I know that’s a mental roadblock I need to learn to get through.
Total mileage: 30.2
Soda count: 3 (<—woo hoo!)
–How was your running week?
–At what mileage do you start to feel your body crumble?
