This week’s training went pretty smoothly –
4 days of running (T, W, F, Sa), and two CG days (M, Th). Our “long” weekend run only needed to be 4 miles. Starting this week, the long, slow, weekend miles accelerate fairly rapidly with stepback weeks in between: 4, 11, 5, 13, 5, 15, 5, 17, etc.
My buddy Steve was out for a couple of the runs this week due to a most unfortunate I-forgot- glide long run. He was seriously down and out for a few days. I felt bad for him. I had a couple of run alone days, one of which felt seriously sluggish. Not discouraging, but I just felt I couldn’t really move all that well.
But, I did get all my workouts in, and I continued to work on my food principles:
- Make some wise choices / have a plan
- Eat when hungry
- Stop when full
- Drink water; get sleep
- Address reasons for eating other than hunger (don’t love this one, but it’s part of the deal)
So, I ended the week feeling pretty strong.
I’m raising $3,000 to help bring clean water to children and communities in Africa. $50 will provide access to clean water for one person. Will you help?
