Thoughts: I was lazy today. I will admit it. My aim was to eat half way healthy but eat some fun stuff for breakfast as a reward. I had french toast with butter and powdered sugar. It was everything I thought it would be. Planned a healthy salad for lunch but the in-laws wanted us to go out with them to a little greasy spoon, no healthy options so I sucked it up. Dinner not so bad.
I had a new first today. After lunch we got home and I went to work on my race report. CB changed and said "I'm going to the gym are you coming" and I said "no I'm going to finish this and run later". Never has CB gone to the gym and I stayed home. It's like the twilight zone.
After dinner I changed out to run and grabbed Holly. I wanted a nice slow three mile recovery run. It was late, I was cold, my hamstrings were aching, and I really just wanted to go to bed. I wrapped it up at a mile.
One thing I can say is that I have no soreness in my calves, the calf sleeves work. Today I just had soreness in my chest, arms, abs, and upper legs. sheesh.
Today I have a decision I need to make. I have decided to forego the Disney World Half Marathon, sadly. The cost of the trip is really not in our budget. Especially with saving for a bike and all. When I picked that race as what I wanted to do, I had a to secret back up race. The 10k I have as a "B" race on my schedule has a half marathon option. I have decided to do that instead.
The decision I need to make is how to alter my training schedule. It is time AGAIN to adapt and overcome. I am following a 12 week half marathon plan. I have completed the first two weeks. With the race change I would need to move to week 9, clearly skipping 6 weeks. Due to some altering of the first two weeks of the schedule I ended up running 19 miles last week and about 31 the week before. The mileage for week 9 is 21.5. So this would be right in line with what I have been doing. The mileage is only that high because the plan calls for a 15k race on Sunday. Essentially I ran that last weekend. Not much concern there. The only thing that even concerns me is the speed work. The 400 repeats would go from last weeks 5 to 9 this week. This might not even be something that should concern me.
Tell me what you think!
