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?
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!
