Run 'til you Drop!

So, it’s been 17 days since the London marathon and I’ve only managed one run just to test my calf injury. It felt ok at the time but really tightened up afterwards, so I decided to leave it a few more days before heading out again. Another test run is due and I’m eager to get moving again. By finally completing the marathon and not being able to run, it has given me the opportunity to get back into my studio for some long overdue weight sessions; oh how I’ve missed them!!! I haven’t done any real weights for over 6 months as I wanted to cut down a little bit of my muscle bulk so that I was slimmer and lighter for race day. Now that’s done, I’m going back to bulking up and gaining the 10lb’s of muscle bulk that I’d lost. So I do have a couple…

That word has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?

The quickly warming weather, long days, and perhaps that 1/2 marathon last weekend are all adding up to mega-fatigue.

JR is tired too, so I think the farming may be more the culprit than the running.

Regardless, I’ve taken the week off. Not from work, but from running.

Vacation would be better, but we’ve all got to work within our current realistic possibilities, right? 🙂

I looked back in my training log and even after my marathon last year I went on a run 4 days later. That’s all fine and dandy, but this week I decided it’s off limits. Even if I want to run, a break is probably good. I may even take a few weeks.

Garmin Uploads, Run’s nd Rest days… Training Marathon/ Half Marathon


Garmin finally allowed me to login and download Sunday’s run, which was fairly consistent minus a few pace spikes, but considering how I was feeling, I will take it!

I realized afterwards I did something I probably shouldn’t have, especially after writing a few posts ago I had been farting around running 10k’s in preparation for an upcoming half marathon; I increased my mileage from the previous week by 15 miles…  Probably an indication why the end of Sunday’s run felt so hard. Experts say it is good training on tired legs! I will use that as my excuse…

Today I am lying on the couch… Tomorrow I will be resting much like today…  

Next week I am planning on toning down the aggressiveness and running 35 miles total… I am glutton for punishment, I plan on repeating the 12.5 miles I ran last Sunday on Sunday.

I attempted to clean up my blog making it more readable, but I failed. It is amazing how difficult it is to navigate Word press… I did however update my Gravatar (may have named that wrong) which came with some minor headaches itself. Bravo!
