CIM Training – week 13

I’m not sure how I should feel about this week.  I was away working.  Crazy, crazy things happened (that I don’t really want to get into), so I was’t able to get all my runs in.  I didn’t hit workouts that I should have done – namely tempo and strength runs.  But,  it’s done.  I can’t go back and change it.  I have to keep reminding myself that I’ve been running more that I’ve ever been before.  Even with a few weeks being off, I’ve kept pushing.  I’ve been more consistent.  I will try to talk myself up, not down.

oh dear

I’ve been away.  I was working for the last two weeks.  And I haven’t had the time to update my blog.  I better get back to it.  My last post was week 11, and now I think I’m in week 14!  M-day is getting closer!

I’ll be updating asap.  But for now, enjoy this view of Sydney

CIM Training – week 11

An OK week.  It started out well, then I went to Kauai with my husband, and I didn’t really want to run while I was away.  I decided to do a little bit of my run so I didn’t miss out on it completely.  I also missed one easy day of running.  But I’m ok with this, it could be good to give my legs a bit more of a rest.

My last 8 miler for the week was tough.  And to be honest, I’m struggling with running.  I just don’t feel like it.  I just need to somehow find the motivation to keep going.

CIM Training – week 10

What a week.  Almost 50 miles.  I really want to go out and run 0.5 to make it up to 50 miles for the week.  So close!  But you know what?  I’m going to resist!  I’m sure I’ll get there eventually.

I didn’t hit all my paces this week.  I cut my last speed workout for this training plan short.  But I went out and ran every run.  I didn’t want to, but I did it.  To me, this makes this week a win.
