- Saturday: 4m with Mike along the river. You could not ask for better weather.
- Sunday: 14.2m training run. Better weather, unbelievably!
- Monday: Rest. After 9 great hours of sleep.
- Tuesday: PT. Overslept (up too late because it's PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE SEASON!!!) and I missed my run. Almost missed PT. I debated running at night - even got my running clothes on - but I'm not ready for a back-to-back, night run followed by the next morning.
- Wednesday: 7.2 or something. I was aiming for 8, with 5x600m repeats at 5k pace. My first four repeats were spot-on. My last one... I didn't finish it. Massive wall.
- Thursday: 3m. I wanted to do 5, but I got called in to the hospital for my bimonthly do-gooder on-call volunteer shift. I didn't get home until 1am. Friday will be rough, I predict.
I have a new training plan. I'll reproduce it here for you:
As you can see, my sister took away most of my longer runs. Instead of multiple 20s, I'll now do one 20 before NYCM. In place of the long(er) runs, I'll have several back-to-back weekends, running three days in a row with two of those runs being double digit mileage. She thinks that this should keep my mileage low enough that I don't get reinjured, but it will simultaneously get my legs used to running while tired.
I got a groupon for the bikram studio near me, so you'll see that on there as I'm going to try to incorporate yoga. Let's be realistic; I may not end up doing it. (At least not that often.) Basically, anything in red represents "wishful thinking."
Incidentally: today is one month until the Chicago Marathon. Yup.
