Low Miles

I just plugged in the Garmin and realized that I only ran twice and very low miles.... 11.2 miles.. Ummmm?? I was so busy at work and tired when I got home that I did not fit it in. And I couldn't connect with anyone for a long run this weekend.. Wow excuses, not like me. With Seattle Rock N Roll Less than a month away this is not good.... Of course I plan to run 20 tomorrow and 26.2 next Saturday, making next week a HIGH MILEAGE week.. So I guess it will all balance out :)

Today I HOPE Tall Sister will show up for a run/jog/walk, her first with me. Our plan is to get her in 5K shape for the summer and to learn about training for the higher mile races in the future. She ran cross country in high school so I HOPE that the bug will hit again.

Short run today and a LONG run tomorrow with Corie and he husband Jon an Ironman in training. Should be FUN!!

  • How has running this weekend gone? I have seen some AWESOME races on Facebook. TMB and Katie both placed in races, LOVE the speed ladies!!! And TMB announced that she is COMING TO WA!! She will be racing and hanging with local bloggers. Our Guest Room is soon to become Blogger Central, hmmm maybe we should decorate it is race bibs and medals.

Yeah I guess some weeks are just like that. I know you'll fit it in next week. Seattle should be a blast!

There'll be more running next week. Love that pic of you and your sister. You both look great! Enjoy the holiday.

Think of this week as a recovery week. Now you are sure to have plenty of juice left for a super high mileage week!

I think race bibs and medals are perfect guest room decor!

SO EXCITED!

I don't think you need to worry about a few runs on the short side! You obviously have some long runs ahead of you that might be very taxing, so it might do your body (and mind) a little good to go easy this weekend!

Hope you're having a great weekend with your family! The pic of you and your sis is super cute!

Amanda said...

I bet your easy week will be a good thing when you have nice fresh legs for your long runs coming up!

Next week will be big mileage for you so its prolly good that this week turned out that way. I hate it when i dont get a lot of mileage in, but sometimes life gets in the way!! Hope you are having a great weekend!

My weeks fluctuate like that too. This week has been 14 and yet the week before was 27. The week before that was 39. It goes in waves I guess and equaled out to 100 this month.

Have a great time on the 20!

You needed a slow/low week after a marathon, move, work, family.... Don't fret it. (easier said than done, eh?)

I had an awesome race this morning. I'm about to post about it.

Laura said...

I was doing the same kind of freaking out last week but am just letting it go and looking into this week.
