The only thing I can say about last week is this: WHEW! I’m glad I survived! Between a cancelled trip to South Carolina (and the heartbreak I suffered as a result of not being able to see my daughter), a head cold, birthday celebrations, a mini over-night crabbing adventure, and a night out on the town… I’m grateful for those 11.25 miles I did get in! They were all run at an easy pace as I wasn’t feeling well and still trying to respect the fact that I did run a marathon the weekend before.
I’m super pumped about this week though! I feel a ton better and am focusing on training for my cross-country meet at the end of the month.Taking it easy last week was a good thing and I believe that my body will be much more responsive to the training I’m going to be doing. Lots of XC style running and drills! In fact, tonight at my teams practice, we ran the 5k course that our local high school uses when they host meets. Complete with a creek crossing! Even after just a taste of it today, I know I’m going to love it!
So back at it this week, focused, and ready to kick some ass! Wasn’t Just the Wine Talking wishes you a great week!
