Week 5 Run 1

So in my last post I went on about how pleased I was that I didn’t miss a running day in my training plan yet. Well I missed all of last week. Completely derailed. Off the wagon.

I decided that instead of doing week 4 this week I would continue with the plan and begin week 5 as I was suppose to. I completed 4 miles this morning, will have another 4 on Wednesday, & then six on Friday. Despite skipping last week, my run was pretty okay this morning!

I bought new running shoes this past weekend. They’re Brooks brand which I’ve never tried before, but I’m pretty sure I’m in love. I also found Sweaty Bands in real life! It was the greatest!

In other news work is crazy. I’m pulling 12 hour days lately and it’s absolutely draining. I think I have a match date on Friday night, but I may be dead with the 6 mile run and work combo.

I remember in an interview years ago P Diddy said he did not need sleep and would work 24/7. I fell asleep during dinner tonight. I’m counting down to my day off on Sunday. 

1/4 way through

  • I finished 1/4 of my half marathon training today with a 5 mile run/jog in 64:04. I’m glad I’ve made it this far without skipping a day or giving up. Lets’ hope the next 1/4 go as well!
  • My left ankle and knee have been feeling wonky whenever I run more than 2 miles. I’m going to keep my eye on it and if it gets worse, I’ll have to get it checked out.
  • I worked 4pm-midnight on Thursday, 1:30pm-10:30pm (I walked 10 miles around work during this, WHAT) on Friday, & 9am-5pm yesterday. I was wiped out this morning. After my run I had lunch, watched 2 episodes of Dexter, & then napped for 4 hours. I feel great & definitely needed that.

July 17th

Today I did my scheduled 3.5 miles in 42:26. I really did not want to run today, but I did. I’m satisfied. After my 5 miles on Sunday I will be done with week 3 of half marathon training. My eating has been okayish. Need to find the determination to eat good at least 80% of the time.

I’m working until midnight tonight and I hope my medium iced coffee gives me the strength I need to not lose my mind. I went on a 2nd date last night and it was blahhhh. Not half as good as the first. I am secretly hoping he just doesn’t text or call me again.

I am obsessed with Weird Al’s “Word Crimes”. I can’t listen to it on loop enough.

Sunday Runday

  • It was a struggle to peel myself off the couch while binging Dexter on Netflix today.
  • I knew the only way I’d be able to complete my 4 miles today was if I was distracted the whole time. So I was thankful the world cup final was today!
  • I ran/jogged my 4 in 49:39. I am pleased with this time. My left ankle is feeling a little wonkadoodle. I will need to keep an eye on that.
  • My friend just introduced me to a Greek yogurt that has 18g of protein. These little guys are super filling, delicious, and my new go to snack!
  • I normally like to only talk to one match.com guy at a time. I find it hard to multitask and who likes what and has what interest. However, I just went on a liking/winking spree. I now have a few messages in my inbox. AH. I’m scurred!
