It has begun. I have less than 4 weeks now to build up my endurance to run a 10k, ideally without breaks. My longest run so far has been 6.72km. This weekend will be a full 7k. What I've learned from reading training books, you build up to 10k without actually running the full 10k til race day. So, I have my schedule all written up for the next few weeks. It looks something like this (CF = crossfit, X = rest days)
Week 1: M: 6.72k / T: CF / W: 6k / Th: X / F: X / Sat: CF / Sun: 7k
Week 2: M: CF / T: 7k / W: CF / Th: X / Fr: X / Sat: CF / Sun : 8k
I shift things around depending on what the forecast is, because I can swap CF/run days based on rain. But I need to keep my running at 4x/wk. with CF in between and rest days.
Fuck rain! But please feed my plants :)
Sleep was ok, I had trouble falling asleep which is weird since I ran.
Jamie was off so he made a lovely steak dinner with veggies and a nice bottle of Bordeaux. I know I'm supposed to be off the Jesus juice but come on, it's Jesus juice!!
I had treats this weekend, and ate a crappy meal at Jack Astors. Note to self: don't go to Jack Astors for anything other than the buffalo chicken wings and fries. Period.
I made a little orange loaf cake for my mom, and she made a vanilla cake. No regrets.
