This week I didn't hit all of my scheduled runs (cue sad music). I had to cut my Monday run short. I was just super sore. Thursday's tempo run was also cut short. I was just too tired with dead legs.
Today was my long run and after being awake several times in the night with Lil Man and then Hubby's snoring, at around 3:30am, I turned off the 6am alarm and messaged my running buddy to tell her that I just wasn't going to make it. I felt bad for bailing on her, but it actually worked out since she wasn't feeling well and wasn't going to be able to make it either. So with a little more sleep, I got a very late start (for me), and headed out for my 16 mile run.
As I type this, I'm feeling every single step it feels like. I'm really sore. So I can't say that I'm totally thrilled that I have 7 on the schedule for tomorrow. But I am glad that I got in 16 miles at the target pace (plan called for 11:15-11:45). I did have to stop a few times to stretch. And I got dizzy once. But it's done!
****** Update - the 7 miler after my long run didn't happen. My body just didn't a day of rest. So I listened and look a rest day. Fingers crossed I can hit all of my runs next week.
