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.
Monday, October 23rd
Scheduled: 10 miles at long pace
What I did: 10 miles @ 9:41min/mile
Tuesday, October 24th
Scheduled: 7 miles at easy pace
What I did: 7 miles @ 10:28min/mile
What an awesome run. I ran all around Sydney. Starting from my hotel, I went across the Sydney Harbour Bridge, through the Botanical Gardens, around the Opera House and then under the bridge. Amazing!
Wednesday, October 25th
Scheduled: 3 x 2miles (800m recovery)
What I did: 1 x 2 mile @ 11.0kph, 1 mile warm up and cool down.
This run was late at night on the treadmill. I gave up. I decided I needed sleep more than the run, and this was the day the craziness on my trip began. At least I got in a few tougher miles.
Thursday, October 26th
What I did: Rested.
Friday, October 27th
Scheduled: 9 mile @ tempo pace
What I did: 1 mile warm up, 2 miles @ tempo pace (10.7kph), 1 mile cool down.
Again, this was after a very, very long day. I decided to call it quits. Plus, the hotel gym was ridiculously hot. Ugh.
