Random thoughts today:
Did you see where Runners World posted about a woman that ran 216 miles in one week?!!! Amazing!! It appears that this is not unusual for her. Insane but very inspiring!
Javamom would not approve but I have only had two cups of coffee in the past seven days. Now I am not giving up this habit but I have been having a Vanilla Mint Tea with honey and have been amazed at how I am feeling. Calm, even, and relaxed. The coffee jacks me up!
My yoga instructor continues to amaze me with her teachings. She has given me even more tools to help with the hamstring tightness I am having. Correcting my form is making all of the difference. I just love it!!!
How I love Jillian Michaels from the Biggest Loser but this week she was way out of line. I know emotions run high but being professional is always key. Each and every contestant continues to amaze me with their results.
Four weeks until my next 50k race, April 13th. I have NO intention of not running in this event. I am aware that my mileage is no where near where it should be so you know I am working on an optional plan. Since there are no cutoff times I may just run/walk it if I have to. Not the option I would normally consider ever but in this case I will do what I need to do. This is part of a series and I don’t want DNS or DNF. Just my thoughts for right now.
Training for the week so far:
Monday – 3 mile run / yoga
Tuesday – 2 mile run / full body weights
Wednesday – bike trainer 35 minutes (moderate to hard) / yoga
Thursday – 4 mile run / full body weights (this is the plan this afternoon)
So all in all I feel good this week. Just trying to stay positive (this can be hard at times) and move forward however I can. Where I am at is only temporary!!
