Monday, 2/13The Plan ↠ 2 mile Recovery Run
Reality ↠ Nice, easy run with Sallie. Felt good to shake out Saturday's long run. We did about 2.82 miles. I tried to take a shortcut, but it ended up being a long-cut. Oops!
Tuesday, 2/14The Plan ↠ NTC The Power Start | 30 min
Reality ↠ Done! Endurance rep-based workout. It took me a couple minutes longer, but it was a great workout.
This delicious egg bake was in the oven while I worked out. Perfect multi-tasking.
|A delicious Valentine's Day treat|
We had a movie night for Valentine's Day and ordered in Domino's. We watched The Accountant and then Keeping Up with the Joneses. I actually really enjoyed The Accountant. It was a bit slow at times, but overall, I liked the flow of the story. Keeping Up with the Joneses was good, too, but I didn't like it quite as well.
Wednesday, 2/15The Plan ↠ NTC The Complete Crush | 45 min
Reality ↠ REST
I woke up at 4:30am with some tummy issues after overindulging a bit Tuesday night, so I went back to bed and slept in until 6:15.
Thursday, 2/16The Plan ↠ NTC The Circuit Breaker | 29 min
Reality ↠ REST
I woke up so very tired. I laid in bed trying to simultaneously convince myself to get out of bed and to call in sick. Getting up won out, but it was a touch decision. LOL.
My Sallie-girl had a check-up and then her teeth cleaned and a couple lumps removed. The lumps aren't anything serious, but a couple had gotten quite large. Since she was put under for the procedures, I think it was causing me a little stress throughout the day.
Friday, 2/17The Plan ↠ REST
Reality ↠ REST
Kind of a repeat of Thu. Another real struggle to get out of bed and get ready for work.
Saturday, 2/18The Plan ↠ 6-hour run, or at least 21 miles
Reality ↠ REST.
I woke up with a sore throat and zero motivation to get out on the trails. It was cold and rainy and I just wanted to curl up. Which I did. I also watched a lot of TV.
Sunday, 2/19The Plan ↠ REST
Reality ↠ 5-hour run | 16.3 miles
A little slower than I'd have liked, but I'm glad I managed a long run this weekend. I've now officially run every mile of the Beginner's Luck 55k. Now to focus on getting even more familiar with the course and improving my time. I do feel like I'm on track with preparing for my first ultra.
Clean It Out, Use it Up updateWeek 7: Cornmeal, which I used to make Clean Eating Maple Cornbread.
It turned out really good. I liked the subtle maple flavor with the chili I made, but Jeff wasn't a fan of them together.
What was the highlight of your week last week?
Do anything fun for Valentine's Day?
