Weekly Roundup 3.4-3.10

Week 11 of 16

I’m back!  So I’m not 100% but I’m back to running and overall feeling pretty good.  I totaled 22 miles on the week with a “long run” of 10 miles.

Monday was awesome running weather for March and I couldn’t wait to get out the door for a run.  My plan was to run 3 miles but that weather!  I ended up running 5 miles and felt great.

I tried spinning on Tuesday morning for the first time since my injury but started to regret it towards the end of class.  I originally thought sitting was aggregating my hip but the angle in a standing climb was not ideal either.  Boo.

Tuesday afternoon I got in a strength training session followed by a short, easy treadmill run.  I may have overdone it so I took Wednesday completely off and only taught about half of my Thursday night spin class on the bike.

I met with Kathy for PT on Friday morning then headed home to a 4 mile run.  Later that day Georgie and I met up with my mom for a nice beach to beach walk in Cotuit.

I had mixed emotions about my “long run” on Saturday morning.  It was another awesome March day and I was looking forward to getting out the door but I was supposed to run my first 20 miler this week.  Kathy said I should run 8.  I was thinking more like 10-12 and honestly I was more nervous about running 10 miles then I usually am before running 20 miles.  It was a big run for me.  If it didn’t go well and the pain returned, I knew that was pretty much it for my Boston 2019 training.  I am running out of time and I couldn’t afford another setback.

The good news is, I ran 10 miles pain free.  I was sore after but that is expected.  In terms of cardio, I was struggling.  I stopped a bunch of times.  I visited Lola and Parker.  I searched for sea glass at the beach.  I took my time and enjoyed it. 

Next week I will shoot for 14 miles…
