27.46 miIt was a drop back week, but it didn't really feel like it lol
At a glance that was my week :) I keep trying to shrink my chart and can't figure out how lol
I don't want this to be a monster post but I have so many little issues popping up, concerns, things I am questioning...I had a hard time getting focused.
|mostly in the orange zone :)|
Tuesday, I went to the gym after work to give my legs some love.
Wednesday when I woke up I could feel all kind of muscle soreness and fatigue in my legs, but I was determined to run. It was so humid and I finally found a sprinkler about half way I could dip in. Struggle fest but I did get 7.5 miles before work. That's a snoozy button win!!
Thursday I could feel all kind of muscles soreness every time I ran up and down the steps at work. I did not feel like I worked my legs that hard, but wooowza were my legs messed up.
Friday, my legs still feeling sore, and it was so hot, but I decided to squeeze out a short run because the hurricane was supposed to wash out Saturday. I thought just a few miles would loosen up my legs and hold me over until I could run Sunday. My watch wouldn't connect for the first time ever and I turned GPS off and started running.
I did it again...five minutes into my run power save mode beeping...ugh, I started my watch after I had been running about a half mile. Crazy.
I varied the intensity, and really tried to push the pace and when I looked, it was my same old "easy pace". What?!! I was 100% in the red zone. How can you feel like you are pushing and have zero results lol - ugh!! Anyone feel this joy ever?
The beauty of darker mornings - I can sports bra run again. There is really too much of me to do this but I am so frickin' tired of being hot - I don't care.
Saturday at the gym during my warm up on the bike I realized I forgot to start my watch! What is wrong with me. Do you think this is a sign of early dementia?
Anyway, I had slept in, had coffeee, and thought I will be ready to rock.
My legs felt fatigued the entire time...so weird. I stretched between sets. How did one freaking leg session impact my whole week?
Sunday - long run day! I took extra time to warm up. At different times during my run I felt some tightness in my left calf, and overall my legs felt a bit heavy. Heavy legs is becoming a theme in my life!
I actually felt better when I picked the pace up, as far as my stride and feeling a little lighter on my feet, but I don't have much stamina, I can't hold a faster pace for very long. My right foot, toe two to be specific, was screaming during the last mile of my pick ups, so I switched to 3 x1 intervals for a few miles to finish up. I thought I was going to get away with skipping intervals this week, but what the feet want, the feet get. I'll be back to intervals for my long run next week.
This is how my .25 miles pick ups went...
I can't find much consistency but I hope it will come. I felt pretty wiped out when I as done, but this is really my favorite work out right now.
I felt like I was treading trying to keep my head above the water the entire week. I hope to feel like I have it together more this week, but it is the first week with kids at school!! SO probably not LOL

I hope you have a wonderful week! Did you enjoy a long weekend? It was my hubby's birthday - we went bowling and shot pool :)
Do you ever feel you are letting the feet hit the ground too hard? But can't muster the energy to fix it?
