Ahh yes, another 2 week recap :-) Its alright this time, because there is one pretty good week, and one insanely lame week, so they balance out into two decent weeks. At least that is the math I am going to use in this instance!
This was a run with mom - so it was a 30/40
Yay for faster! Today I went back to 40/40
This is the first "longer than 3 mile" run that I have managed to keep under a 14 min mile pace. I am not anywhere near as fast as I hope to be by Tower of Terror, but I am excited that I can actually see progress! Hooray!
Now for last week:
I did nothing. Nada. Not one single mile. My sinuses were bothering me on Tuesday and Wednesday. They were all clogged up and pressure-y. I was so clogged up that it was throwing my equilibrium off! I tripped going up the stairs to my apartment every time during those two days. While I am not exactly a picture of grace, I am also not that clumsy, so I figured running may not be the greatest idea. Plus in addition to being clogged my head was nice and poundy, so all in all I just was not feeling the whole run thing. And then on Thursday I went out of town for the weekend, so there was no running for me all week.
The good news is that my yoga studio started a "Yoga for Runners" class and I went to the first one on Sunday. At 7am! It was packed. And we did a lot of leg stretching which will definitely be helpful. And I ran this morning. So I am already back on track. This morning was a tough run, so there will be no more skipping weeks for me (at least I am going to try my best to make sure of it anyway).
In other related news. I am like 50% of the way through The Stand. At this rate it is going to take me forty forevers to get through those 100 books. I need to speed things up. Its pretty good so far though. I am not sure what I am going to make my second choice. I need to renew my library card and see what I can find!
