This past week was a BIG transition week for me! The previous week I was uncertain about running Boston at all, sick, and only ran 28 miles. I was pretty much having a big-ass pity party! Fast forward a week and I’ve recommitted to my dream of completing what I started, threw myself into training, started feeling a ton better (though still not 100%) and got in some decent mileage, totaling 52.75.
Yesterday I executed a pretty good training run which was my longest run in several months. I realized afterwards that it was a culmination of my efforts over the course of the entire week that paid off! I cut out alcohol, ate super clean, went to bed early most nights, made time to stretch daily, and really poured myself into the lifestyle, so to speak. It was a pretty dang good start, I think.
Today is my rest and regroup day for which I’m totally grateful! (I’ve been up since 3:50!) This week I’ll continue to build up my mileage and work to keep the momentum on the efforts that I began to institute last week.
Have a great week and GO UO DUCKS!!!
