Above is this past week's training schedule.
Monday went well for me, despite my cold and running in the morning. I was a little worried about how a pre-sun rise run would work out but I managed to do well. I rocked the run, though I did step off the treadmill more often than I would usually. I found that, until my cold kicked in, the early morning runs were not as hard as I thought they would be. I enjoyed the burst of energy they gave me and even though I used up some points for a pre-run snack, I didn't need coffee that morning to wake myself up so it all balanced out. Let's hope it all works out that I can keep up the early morning runs, once the cold is over!
Boot camp is going well and I'm excited about it. We did some different things this week and I enjoyed it even though it was exhausting. I found it funny that during the Thursday workout I got so sweaty that during burpies when I had to get up off the mat there was a sweaty outline of me. I have to say that is a new one, but was most impressive. Guess I'm getting my money's worth.
My so called long run was sad and not a big run. I didn't manage to run the distance or speed that I wanted to, but weather sucked and my cold got to me. C'est la vie!
