This week was a down week running wise. Life wise there was a refrigerator emergency that took up a lot of my time. We also had an out of town wedding to attend so running was sure to be interrupted.
Sunday: Easy recovery run before the saints game: 4.25. Played frisbee after and was sore for a few days.
Monday: 8m. From house to run group, run group, and back.
Tuesday: Off. Refrigerator Emergency. Spent most of the evening cleaning.
Wed: 7.1 at run group. I was grumpy on this run and wanted to run it quickly.
Thursday: 6.6 with Mearn at run group. Felt easy.
Friday: Long Run was moved to this day because of previously mentioned wedding. The goal was 19ish miles. I made it 14.6 and had to call it quits. My legs hurt. My stomach hurt. Basically I NEVER felt good.
Saturday: 4.3 with people before the wedding. We ran slowly.
Week total was right under 45. Not bad for a down week. Did not get in the workout for the week due to stress from the refrigerator. Not too worried about it.
Other running news. The Chicago marathon was this weekend. It kicked my marathon fever back into high gear so motivation this week should not be a problem. Louisiana runner Matt Manning ran 2:28 which is not what he wanted but is still an impressive time. The female winner Liliya Shobukhova finished in a VERY impressive 2:18.
She is poised to be one of the favorites in the marathon next Olympics. Any time a woman is breaking 2:20 she is breathing rare air.
In other news. I am racing this weekend. 10 miles. This is exciting because I tend to get bored just training. Also, I have limited experience with longer races so hopefully the more I do them the better I will get. I will post a race report after. I think I am going to race in my Lunar Racers. I have only used them once and I am considering using them for the marathon. I guess a 10 mile race is a good way to test them out. Hopefully they don’t hurt my feet!
Thats all the news for now. I will leave you with a lolcatz.
