Happy Friday

Hi there! Friday afternoon is probably the worst time to post (in terms of views), but the best time for me logistically, so here I am. I think I’ll restart some semblance of a training log, just to keep myself accountable that yes, I’m actually training for a race now. Otherwise, it’s too easy for me to skip/reschedule/shorten runs.

Last week’s stats:

  • number of runs: 5
  • total miles: 21.9
  • long run: 8 miles
  • non-running activities: 2.4 miles of walking, half-hearted attempts at pull-ups

This week hasn’t been stellar so far. I haven’t been able to get to bed as early as I want to, so I’ve had a hard time waking up in the morning. On Tuesday, I was able to sleep in and run at lunch time. However, after a late dinner with colleagues on Wednesday, my Thursday morning run was pushed to this morning… it’s weird how it’s been ingrained in me that Mondays and Fridays are rest days. Unless it’s a day off work, I cannot motivate myself to run usually. But this morning, I made myself do it! Yay for me. It’s the small victories, you know?

I will say that the highlight of last week was the 8 miler with KH and SP. Sure, I probably should’ve run 10, but whatevs. The time went by SO fast and we were able to push the pace (relatively, like 10-20 seconds/mile) while talking, so it was all good.

This weekend, I’m planning on doing 10 tough trail miles with DD. Two weeks out from Kaiser, I probably should be doing 12+ on some rolling pavement, but I’d rather tackle some trails with good company. It’s a good thing that Kaiser is no longer my training run!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

    Are you doing pull-ups at your house? Can you do a pull-up, I’m intrigued. I can only do them with the help of bands.

      No, I can’t do a pull up. This was one of my fitness goals back in… 2014? 2015? But I never got anywhere with it. I’m basically just hanging off the pull up bar at this point. (It’s attached to the guest bathroom door frame.)
