Week 8…We Knew Ye Well

24 Aug

So, summer is flying by right?

summer end

Which means that fall race season is rapidly approaching!!  And after fall race season — yeah, you know it!!! #Dopey15 (seriously this needs to catch on, ya’ll help a girl out!!)


So, on with the recap — it’s gonna be short so we can all get to bed! I think a lot of parents have kids starting school tomorrow or later this week. And a lot of people have to go to work!!

The Galloway plan for the week called for

Tuesday 45 minute run/walk
Thursday 45 minute run/walk
Saturday 9 miles

Yeah. 9!! That means we’re 2 weeks from double digits ya’ll!!

So here’s what happened:

Tuesday: Yeah. I did it! 3.2 miles cause I ended up walking the first 10 minutes but it got done!
Thursday: What?! Yes. 45 minutes and 3.5 miles. Though I’m annoyed at myself because when I got in from my run I realized I had missed out on the final Hartford Marathon Foundation Xtreme Scramble of the summer <sad face>
Saturday: I was heading out to my run and got a message from a friend that she was going to need a lift to a golf tournament we were going to so I headed in and got dressed, knowing that I’d be doing a 10K Sunday. Got home around 11:30 and as usual didn’t get to sleep til around 1 and naturally didn’t set my alarm. Which means my second missed run of the week. BUUUUT…that meant I could do my full 9! Or, could I? Poor planning, bad hydration and nutrition and starting mid-day led me to cutting my run short. So. 8 in today. PS Middletown CT – where you can run uphill for 3 miles and never head downhill…what’s up with that!!

Rewarded myself with a cool bath and an Italian ice after rehydrating and getting some protein in my system.

Looking forward to this week — plan to really hit it!! And heading to my dad’s on Thursday which means a hot humid 3 on Saturday!! It’s just part of the “training to run in Orlando” plan!!

So have a great Sunday evening and hopefully everyone is ready for the excitement of going back to school!!

PS — I know lots of folks are getting all wet and all for ALS (and donating too–don’t forget that!!) but if your heart leans in another direction have a look here and maybe drop me a couple of bucks!! 😉
