This week was a relatively quiet week. It’s nice to have after the stress and hectic times prior to submitting my thesis.
Monday: 2 mile run. If only I could be this “fast” when I am running more than 2 miles.
Tuesday: Pilates class
Wednesday: 6 mile run. I managed to accidentally pause my Fitbit for a few minutes. I felt like my legs were really heavy and I was very tired on this run.
Thursday and Friday: Rest days. I definitely felt like I needed more rest. I’ve been very sore and tired lately.
Saturday: 9 mile run. I’m not sure how I was even slower than last week. I felt achy and sore while running and felt really, really slow- which I was. I wish I could get over this mental hurdle, as I know a lot of it is mental.
I certainly hope that the excitement of the race will help me pick up my pace and that I will be a
bit lot faster than this run!
Here’s my view at the half-way point yesterday.
On a completely unrelated note, I’ve organised a fundraiser for Mark Gatiss’s 50th birthday. It benefits Switchboard who do amazing work supporting the LGBT+ community. Mark is one of their patrons. You can donate here. It’s only been two days, but we’re already at 20% of the goal!
