Wrapping Up Week 9!

1 Sep

Wait?!! Week NINE?? How is that even possible!!?

Anyway…let’s make this quick, I’ve got some ribs to get to (after a short run of course!)

The Galloway plan for the week called for

Tuesday 45 minute run/walk
Thursday 45 minute run/walk
Saturday 3 miles

And here’s what happened:

Tuesday – Of course I headed out on Wed. A bit more than 45 minutes, 3.75 miles.
Thursday –  I was travelling on Thursday and it was HOT when I landed so my plan to get out before bed didn’t happen. Friday morning it happened. It was still hot, I got a late-ish start and was worried about getting to work on time (even on ‘vacation’ people!!) so only did about a half hour and 2.5 miles
Saturday – Um….see up there where I mention a short run this morning…that would be this 🙂

So, while I *am* missing some runs along the way, I am being much more consistent than usual in my training. I think the proof of the pudding (mmmm…pudding) will be at the end of this month when I run the Hogsback Half Marathon for the second time.

And, very much unlike last year when I had started feeling some pretty decent pain in my legs – at least I think it started around this time – I am not having ANY of those sort of issues this time around! I was diagnosed several years ago with minor arthritis in my lower back but as long as I keep moving even that doesn’t bother me much (sleeping in a strange bed however?…)

I hope everyone who gets a day off today gets to enjoy it! We’ll be going to my brother’s house where my youngest nephew is cooking ribs. For the first time. Adventure awaits!!!
