Marathon Training Week 6, along with my excuses for the weekend!


My Son's 9th Birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRYCE!

 

So, the first thing to say is —

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRYCE!! 

My Son turned 9 yesterday, and had a VERY busy Birthday weekend!

 

Now, lets start with the week in review!  This is what my week should have looked like:

6

Rest

3 m run

5 m run

3 m run

Rest

7

cross

This is what it really looked like:

6

Rest

3 m run

5 m run

3 m run

Rest

Nothing

B-Day!

As you can see, the week started GREAT!  The follow through on the weekend wasn’t quite as good.  It’s a pity – I thought this was going to be the first week that I would manage to pull off following “the plan. ”

I spent the entire day at a campground with my son on Saturday.  – His best friend held his birthday party up there and from 11:30-9:30 the kids had more fun than a barrel of monkeys! As we drove home, my son and I were talking  – we had planned on doing the 5k at the Spiediefest together on Sunday. He asked if we could stay home and have a special breakfast as a family for his birthday (Sunday my little boy turned NINE!) 

So Sunday turned in to “Spend quality time with the Birthday Boy at home” — Which is as it should be (since it is what he wanted.)  We played “Bey-Blades,” PS3, ate cake and food and had a great ‘ole time.  I didn’t exactly meet my running goals – but it was a “Drop-back” week of only 7 miles, and we have to keep what is important in sight.  Did I miss running a road-race? Certainly.  But would I have missed my son’s “Special Family Breakfast” more? Absolutely!

As a bonus – my Achilles is feeling GREAT!  We will see how tight it is when I hit the road tomorrow! 

We WON’T be discussing this weekend’s diet or any weight gain/loss for the week.

About

I run, because I am a runner. Having realized that I have always "been a runner" - even when I went years with out running, I am learning how it has integrated itself in all aspects of my life. When I started running in highschool, my perspective on life changed. Funny that I didn't realize how much it had affected it until just recently.
