I prepped for my Tuesday workout by placing my clothes out early since I had a 6:30 wakeup call for a 7am workout.
The workout was a 2 x 3mile tempo and the worst workout of my life.
1st set – 21:11 ran by myself
2nd set – 21:07 coach ran with me
I felt like a big piece of poop the whole time hah.
I was supposed to average 7:00 for each set I believe. I hit 7:04 and 7:02 which isn’t too bad. I guess I just felt worse than that so it didn’t feel too good.
Total mileage for the day: 7.6 miles
Then I spent my night with this guy:
How wonderful right?
Today’s workout was quite different.
I cross trained to help my foot recover.
63 minutes on the spin bike
Yes that is my good friend, the literature book, up there. I got all my reading done in the 63 minutes biking.
I worked up a sweat and was probably huffing and puffing during my biking because all I was thinking about was this weekend and next weekend and my racing. How everything I do now will make me better. Hopefully my sweat and heavy breathing wasn’t too gross/disruptive.
I got a second interview for a summer job this summer. Which is exciting because I need one!
Q: Did anything exciting happen to you today? Obviously my phone call I received about my job was exciting!
Q: Don’t you hate when you aren’t allowed to run? I usually do, but today I actually enjoyed the bike. It was nice to get off my foot and the pounding. Plus I got to get all of my homework done!
School and running have consumed my life. Therefore blogging has been put on the back burner
