This week I had planned to get back into a regular running routine. While I managed to get in a few runs things did not go quite as planned.
I started off the week as planned, getting in 8 and 9 km runs on Sunday and Monday. Both runs went well and had me feeling like I was easing back into a routine after the Philadelphia Marathon two weeks ago.
My week starting to go off track Tuesday when heavy rain caused me to cut short my planned run. As mentioned last night, I was sick Wednesday and a run was out of the question. Last night I was able to get in a quick 5 km run.
Today I was planning to get in a run after work but I washed my running clothes late last night meaning they were still wet this morning when I left for work. Since I could not run home from work I had every intention of going for a run later tonight but a day of poor eating habits has made that idea out of the question.
As a result, I have only run 26 km, 16 miles, so far this week. Right now I am planning to get up early tomorrow and get in a good run with my daughter in her Chariot. That should help get me back on track.
Signing up for upcoming races would probably also help. I have not made any final decisions yet but am close to deciding on a couple of shorter races.
How did your training go this week?
