Enforced Rest

After 35km in three days... I think today is going to be a gym and/or bike day. I was going to do 5km, but I don't think my body will let me. Well, that's not quite true. I'm sure I could do it, but the point was going to be to sprint the 5km, pick up some speed, but my body says that's a bad idea. Specifically, my calves and my feet say that's a bad idea.

The good news is... I've done 35km in the past three days! That's more than I've ever run before in that time. Sunday's 15km run was the longest I'd ever run continuously, and was especially tough after doing 10k the day before. The last 2-3kms were just hellish, but I did it and I feel great about it.

Back to it- only 4 weeks 'till Kelowna!

Guh. Don't have much of an excuse for not running AT ALL last week. I'm a little annoyed with myself, considering I ran last saturday hungover and with about four hours of sleep, but haven't run since then!

I blame the stress. That's not a good excuse, when running is such a great stress relief, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Anyway, got out twice this past week, once today (saturday) and once on tuesday. I had to reset my iPod after tuesday's run, though because my Nike+ run files were "corrupted"... couldn't fix it, even with help from tech support. I lost 18 runs since June! But they're saving properly now... here's my run from this morning:

And here's a link to the workout plan that I put together to prep for the next race:


Not sure if clicking on that link will actually take you to it or not... the code grabs from Nike+ seem to be a little odd sometimes.
