My apologies for the blog-silence this week. I had to jump on a plane back to Australia for family reasons, which has thrown everything off. I’d like to think I’m going to do some half-marathon training while I am here, but seeing as I am in the early throes of jet-lag hell, I don’t know how that’s going to go.
But I did manage to do a decent amount of activity the week before last, so I’ll just pretend for the moment that I’m (kind of, sort of, who am I kidding) on track for the Lululemon SeaWheeze Half. I’ll post about last weekend’s 5K tomorrow. I promise.
Tackle box training update (June 4-11):
Power yoga Two-hour ballet class.
Tempo Run: 1 mile warm up/ 2 miles tempo/ 1 mile cool downNothing. Oh wait, I guess the technical term is “rest.”
Rest or flow yoga Nothing. So tired from yesterday’s rest that I needed more.
Easy run 2.5 miles Strength and stride class at the YMCA. Nothing easy about it.
Long run 5 miles Rest.
Yin yoga or optional run Halfway 5K in Canton, MA (great fun), plus 6 x 60-second hill intervals (torture).
Tempo Run: 1 mile warm up/ 2 miles tempo/ 1 mile cool down 2.5-mile run plus 2-mile jog/walk.
As you can see, the schedule has already been tossed out the window. But my goal is to focus on the cumulative effort. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
