Remember how I said I probably wouldn't stick to my marathon training plan this week because my parents were in town?
Prophesy fulfilled. :-)
|The Plan||The Reality|
|Mon, 10/14||2||Walked around
Valley of Fire
|Wed, 10/16||REST||Walked down
The Old Mormon Fort
I'm not beating myself up about this at all. In fact, I feel pretty good about it. I may not have done any running or strength training, but I did walk a lot. I feel like I still have a few weeks for long runs that taking this week off shouldn't hurt my training too badly.
My parents actually flew home on the red eye Friday morning, so I really could have biked to work on Friday and done a long run on Saturday, but Mother Nature had other plans. Yep. I got my period on Friday and then had bad cramps on Saturday. I just wasn't feeling up to doing anything!
Today is a NEW week, and I'm bound to finish my training STRONG!
Up this week? I'm really, really hoping to get in a nice 20 mile run this weekend. If I can tackle that, then I can certainly finish marathon #3, right?
