I’m exhausted. That’s all I have for you, really. Week two was not the success I hoped it would be (so far, anyway) but it was better than week one. So, that’s progress.
Tuesday: Work went bananas and I had no opportunity to get a workout in, reminding me (once again!) of the importance of the morning workout. Get it done by 7am and don’t worry about it for the rest of the day.
Wednesday: I had to pull a double shift so managed to get a run in on my official break of the second shift. I was supposed to do a pick-up 5k, where each kilometre was faster than the last. I tried my best to do this, really I did, but it didn’t quite work out. My splits were:
On kilometre 3 I ran up a teeny hill. Kilometre 5, I just fell apart. I was tired and grumpy and didn’t want to run anymore. So I gave up. Ooops.
Thursday: Another double shift, another run-on-my-break. This run was supposed to be an easy 45 minutes and it was exactly that. I actually enjoyed this run, even though it was really cold. I think I was just relieved I didn’t need to do speed work.
Friday: I have no excuse for this one. I was tired and had a rough day and work and just didn’t want to work out on a Friday night. So I didn’t.
Two more days left this week. I think I can still turn it around. After all, marathon training is a process.
QUESTION: How do y’all track your training? I use DailyMile but am kinda over it, especially now that I have to load things into my Garmin. But I don’t love the Garmin website. I’ve toyed with the idea of getting the workout Moleskine, but that seems a bit much. Any and all suggestions are welcome!
