Oh my. First, I haven't been ignoring you interweb. I've spent most of my week skiing in Winter Park, more on that another time. For now, I came back and have 80,000 blogs to read and catch up on, and my very own posting to do. So here you go, it's going to be to the point, so unlike me. Because I'm, of course, at work, and since it's my first day back, I'm quite popular (meaning people got a lot of shiz done while i was gone and now it's my turn to take over).
This is very late, this post is about LAST week's training. To sum, I only ran twice, my short easy run and my long run. Both done indoors because I'm scared to run alone in the dark in the morning. After work? Not so much. I just find mornings creepy, orrr maybe it's that I'm one of the grumpiest, non-morning people you will ever meet. Whatever the case, basically I'm just a big wimp.
Despite all of that, I got up around 4:30a Friday morning for my long run and did 10 miles at the Y. FUN and I felt fine the whole time, no complaints at all. I had no choice on getting up to do that run Friday morning. There was no other time I could cram it in, and I have a feeling 10 miles on the second day at altitude would not have gone well after a full day of skiing. Other than those two runs, I think I maybe did some yoga, I can't even remember last week! My life has been just ridiculous lately. Needless to say, for as wonderful as my workout week was last time around, last week was the antithesis. But meh, you do what you have to do.
So there you go. Still semi on schedule, hoping all my skiing made up for my lack of working out so far THIS week, and plan on cramming in all my runs in the next four days, including one underground cave race on Sunday with some other blahggies, the Groundhog 10K. I have a feeling I won't have a good showing, but what can you do? My legs are SHOT from skiing, and it was totally worth it.
Next up? All about Winter Park!
