My body is not made for
a night of drinking and staying up late a night on the town. I had a BLAST, but man am I dragging today. Thank goodness there was no headache, but I am so so tired. Rather than napping, I forced myself to get out for a recovery run. I’m surprised how sore I am from yesterday’s half marathon effort. Or maybe it’s from wearing heels for 8 hours last night.
I am SO excited about Boston tomorrow. I can’t imagine how crazy excited I’ll be
if when I’m actually there to run it myself. I’m really rooting for Kara to win the women’s race – it would be so cool for her to make her comeback after having her baby in September to be a victory at Boston! It’s been super exciting reading blogs like Aron and Emily – who just ooze excitement about everything Boston. I’m planning on being glued to my computer all morning tomorrow watching the elite races and tracking peeps.
Go Jen Go!
Grandma’s Week #3 recap
- Miles Run: 51.6
- Pilates: 1 time
Monday: 7 easy (9:24). Ran in the afternoon, which never seems like a real workout to me for some reason.
Tuesday: 10 miles (9:11) with 10 x 400m hill repeats mixed in. Definitely felt harder to do longer hill and more repeats this week. Did the first 8 in a row, then did the last 2 randomly within the last 3 cool down miles. Paces were slower than last week, which makes sense since the hill was longer. (7:35, 7:43, 7:32, 7:40, 8:00, 8:01,8:27, 8:31, 7:23, 8:30). The later ones of the 8 in a row were alot slower because I felt like quitting, but I told myself don’t worry about pace, just get up the hills. Ugggg.
Wednesday: 10 miles (8:42). It was supposed to be at easy pace. I felt good, so ended up doing it at medium effort.
Thursday: complete rest day!
Friday: 5.1 miles (9:27)
Saturday: 13.25 (8:24). Earth Day Half Marathon. Supposed to race it, but held back because of the weather.
Sunday: 6 miles recovery (9:35). Legs felt sore from yesterday. Felt good to get out there after a night of craziness!
