So I dropped my 10k training program in favor of a 5k one. I got all the way through Day 19, but my knee started hurting and I’m paranoid about over-training and getting injured, so that’s that. Plus it’s not like I’m going to actually be running a 10k anytime soon, so other than proving to myself that I could, there wasn’t a point to it.
I signed up for the Charro Days Classic 5K on February 27th so I’ll be training for that instead and then taking a few days to recoup and then training again and running another one in April.
I am a little bummed because I really have a half marathon in mind as an end-goal and part of me is like “how can you ever do that if you didn’t even stick with 6 miles,” but it *will* happen. I have my eye set on the South Padre Marathon in November. Hopefully that’s enough time to get my ass inn gear and learn how to strength train at home.
This week has tired me out like you wouldn’t believe. My husband showed me a picture he took of me out cold on the couch earlier this week. I look dead. Literally.
Needless to say, I’m looking forward unwinding over dinner with my fellow teacher friends as we don’t discuss students or testing or strategies AT ALL. Haha, who am I kidding, that’ll probably be a main topic of conversation. Life of a teacher, gotta love it.
Have a great weekend!
