This is going to be a very short post, most likely. Last week was very thesis heavy as I needed to get it to the printers for Sunday. I was very glad that the week was light on running as I really didn’t have much time to do much else at all!
Sunday: thesis thesis thesis thesis
Monday: 4 miles. I felt really slow, but Runkeeper told me this was my 3rd fastest 6-8k run, so IDK.
Tuesday: Double Pilates which was just what I needed and was awesome! I felt really stretched out afterwards. However, I did notice that this week we did knee/hip work and that seemed to coincide with my knee playing up again. Hmmmm.
Wednesday: I was supposed to run 4 miles, but I had a supervision meeting and was totally crazed/stressed out and it just didn’t happen.
Thursday: 3 miles instead of 4. My knee had been really bothering me for most of the week, so I took it easy. I think this is the first time I’ve ever selected “bad” for a run on Runkeeper (not shown). I just felt so off. I wonder if the stress of the week was impacting me?
Friday: Thesis thesis thesis thesis
Saturday: 4 miles were on the schedule, but I was way too focused on getting the last changes done and beginning the final proofreading.
Sunday: 4 miles. This run was “ok.” I think it has helped that I have been very diligent about my knee rehab exercises again! My right knee was still a bit achy, but not nearly as bad as Thursday. I made sure that I got the run done before I finished my edits and then sent it off to be printed!
So, like I said, a very light week and I am SO glad that this week was a taper off week. I think if I had to run any more than 4 miles at any point I would have never managed it. I spent a lot of the week stressed out, anxious, and sobbing, and while running helps with the stress, running something like 20+ miles last week would have ended me.
