Saturday 15.03km run - yes I ran all bar one lamp post - 1h 45m 04s
Monday 6.05km run - 40m 24s
Tuesday 30 mins personal training
Wednesday 30 mins personal training
Thursday forced rest day as I hurt my back at work moving furniture
As you can see from my first activity this week, it was a big week for me - mentally to be able to do that sort of mileage was amazing. I did battle the last two kms and I blogged about it here but I did it and I was very proud of myself as were my family and my support team (thanks guys !!!!)
I was disappointed when I left work yesterday as my back was twingeing quite badly. By the time I got home I knew that if I ran last night I may not be able to run next Saturday so I treated the one client booked in and felt awful when I was finished with him. A soak in Epsom salts and a wheat pack gave me some relief but this morning I am off to the osteo because I cannot stop my training now. I need to be able to run from tonight. I have a training schedule for the next 8 days and I can't afford to just let it all go.
Once next Saturday is over I am going to have to sit down and work out where I take my running from here. I need to have a goal to aim for - I really battle to run every week when I am not aiming for something but I don't know how far I want to go - a friend in encouraging me to do a half marathon but I don't know if I can do that mentally given how much I battled with the 15kms last weekend.
But, something will come up and it will all be good. Have the best weekend and take care !
Have you been up to anything interesting this week ?
