Week 2: Blah. The Next Will Be Better

I don't have much to say about this week. My body hurt a lot at the beginning because of last week's fall. So I had to postpone a run one day. This got me off schedule and I skipped a day. AND I skipped all leg work due to aching knees. My long run sucked a bunch. I turned 10 miles into 5.

In happy news, swim class was really fun and I had good workouts every day!

Obviously this hasn't been the greatest week. I realized I'm kind of going through a little grieving process over this whole thing where I'm realizing a friend isn't a friend. Today I'm in the anger phase. I'm hoping it passes. I finally talked to my mom about all of it and I feel a bit better.

I'm going to brainstorm and come up with something fun to post!

In the end-- my running was 15 miles. I hoped for 20. 25 were planned. I'm okay with the shorter week though. I need ease into this hard core bad ass lifestyle.

***Did you all like Madonna at Half Time? For this one day I decided to forgive her for all of her "accents". This made me remember Madonna from the good old days. I wanted to go roller skating.

OH - and only 2 weeks until my 12th half marathon in a year. Can you believe it?!? I know I sure can't!


  1. Not all training weeks are good. It's how you respond to the bad weeks, and how you learn from it.

  2. Friend, I am sending you hugs all the way from ATL.

    I loved Madonna's half time show performance! I have to tell you that I nearly spit my water out when I read your quip about the accents.

  3. I thought Madonna was great. Better than expected.
    I love how you turned 10 into 5. We've all been there.
    Yesterday was a great day, but I went to bed alone, as S found Titanic on the TV around bedtime. Thought about you, I hope this week is a better one.

  4. You'll do better this week. Just don't try to leave such an impression on the roads from now on. ;-)

  5. Like A Prayer is my favorite Madonna song, so I was totally pumped!! Loved it!!!

    So hey, maybe the runs didn't work out like you expected. But you loved your swim class, right? So any time you can find a positive about one part of your training, I think that is great!

  6. I like Madonna when she was younger. Nothing against the "Now" Madonna but I think she is trying too hard to keep up with the young kids in the industry and not aging gracefully.


Thanks for reading my little blog, your comments rock my compression socks!! ºoº
