This was a mixed week for me. One great thing (winning 1st female in a 10k!). But overall, a not so great week because of soreness from the 50 mile bike ride last Sunday. So I only ran 5 days and only biked once. Major cut-back week. But what I missed in miles, I made up for in desserts! Ugggg. I feel like a big pig and will definitely need to make next week a better week. And somehow life got in the way and I slacked on my core stuff too. Uggggg.
I’m ready to work hard now though! I’m feeling really optimistic about where I’m at, pace and fitness-wise. I just need to be smarter about doing too much – I loved the 50 mile bike ride, but in retrospect I think it was too much to do the day after 15 mile run w/ 3 at MP. The residual soreness from it screwed up my running training and the running is way more important to me, so I need to be smarter!
