Yesterday, I had an all day meeting so I was unable to blog. So....my loyal followers are getting a 2 for one deal. Free of charge. A BOGO without a coupon, if you will.
Wednesday night, I did a solid 6 mile run. It wasn't fast but it was complete. I went out about an hour earlier than I normally do and it was still in the upper 70's with higher than normal humidity. It was close to what IMTX would be about that time. Had I been nutritioned up properly, I would/could have done more.
**side note** I'm still freaking out about my fitness, but it is what it is. I'm to the point of 'I should get a few more long runs in" or "I'm going to run 10 instead of 6 because that will help me out". I know that it won't and I'm fighting the urge to do more. Trust the plan.....just do what it says!
Last night, I was exhausted. I had eaten like crap all day (no self control mixed with constant hunger...add in junk food.....recipie for distaster). I felt sluggish but had a 3 hour trainer ride. When I picked up my 7yo, she reminded me that it was "Cherry Berry Night" (a local fozen yogurt place gives 10% of sales to her school once a month). So we went there after dinner. When we got home, it was time to start the ride. I said "eff this" and went to bed. Yup....in bed by 8:30. Asleep by 9......and didn't wake up until 6:30.
I don't feel too bad. I probably won't make it up as there is 15 days left and the last 3 are all rest days. I don't feel bad.....I don't.....not bad. I'm glad I got rest. I feel energized and ready to tackle this weekends workouts (a 75/5 brick and a 13 mile run). Last real weekend......
Oh God....we're really close.
