Motivation Monday – March 29, 2010

Wow! I just looked through my post history and realized that I have only posted 3 times in the past 2 weeks. *Sigh* It seems that my lack of energy has transferred to my blog posting as well. Thankfully my running has been a lot better than my posting :) Two weeks ago, my total distance ran was 33K and this past week I backed off a little and ran 28K.

Lately I’ve felt tired and under the weather – like I’ve got a flu that just won’t take hold or bugger off :( Do you have weeks like that? How do you cope?

Harry's Spring Run-Off 5K Race
Next week will be nice as I’ll be doing my first RACE this year! It’s a 5K race on Easter Sunday called the Harry’s Spring Run-Off. I’m looking forward to it and I’m hoping to finish in the top 15 for my age group! this’ll be a first for me because I usually finish in the 50th percentile – half the women my age finish ahead of me and half finish behind me.

Here’s this week’s training plan:

Monday – 6K easy with my lunch time running pals
Tuesday – Yoga
Wednesday – 8K (1K warm up & 1K cool down with 6K of speed work on the track in the middle)
Thursday – 6K asy with my lunch time running pals
Friday – 10K
Saturday – REST
Sunday – Harry’s Spring Run-Off 5K race
(Normally I take Friday off and do a long run on Saturday, but because of Sunday’s race I’m adding my distance on Friday, resting Saturday & running hard on Sunday).

What’s your plan for this week? How will you fit fitness in with the Easter Holiday?

Have a great week folks & make it an active one!
