Wrapping it Up and Looking Ahead!!

28 Jul

wonderful monday

And, it’s once again time to wrap up my week!! I’m already a day late, so let’s get started 🙂

The Galloway plan for the week called for

Tuesday 45 minute run/walk
Thursday 45 minute run/walk
Saturday 5.5 miles

The spirit was very willing this week! So yay!! 🙂 And, I have to say, I’m noticing things getting easier on my runs, which is the whole point of this training thing!

Tuesday — I got up and just did it! Because really…you have to 🙂 3 miles + a bit extra.
Thursday — Thursday evening was the Hartford Marathon Foundation “Run the Rent” 5K — this takes place at an old airfield near Rentschler field. I did this one last year and it was really a nice run so signed up again this year. Not quite 45 minutes and 3.2 miles
Saturday — Initially, I thought that I was going to go to NYC for the day but when I slept in (til 7:30 ya’ll!!) I decided I’d get some things done around the house – spoiler alert: I didn’t get much done 🙂  So I got up Sunday and headed out for my 5.5 before the forecast storms hit. At around 1.4 I felt a “pop” in my left calf. At 1.5 I accepted the fact that I wasn’t going to be able to run much more and turned around. So, 3 miles total, Thanks to my ProCompression socks and an ice pack I wasn’t completely incapacitated all day!

This coming week should be a good one! Hoping to add in an extra run to make up for shortening the weekend’s run. In addition to crossing all my upcoming big finish lines strong, I am also aiming to really put in ALL of the required miles, even if it means making it up along the way. Heading out of town for a couple of days on Friday so also want to get Saturday’s 3 miler in before I go! If things go well, this will be my first four-in-a-row and while I won’t be waking up super super early (as I would at Disney!) it’ll get me in the right frame of mind for doing a four in a row weekend (Hello #Dopey15!!)

And some sad news 😦 I’ve mentioned re-upping for another year at my local Bikram studio but learned last week that she’ll be closing in 2 days.  So I am truly going to have to commit to making this effort since the next closest place is a bit of a longer drive. But, they offer an early morning class every week-day so I will really appreciate having that option.

I hope everyone is ready to attack the week with gusto!!

What big wonderful plans do you have for the coming week?!!
