Yesterday was my 8th day in a row of training and my first day off will be Sunday the 19th! I don't think I have ever trained this many days in a row and yesterday I was so tired. I left work at noon and came home and napped until 2:30 then got up and went to the trainers then headed to practice.
Mondays are usually 400m repeat days but since there was a soccer game the workouts were pushed around. We just did a nice easy 2 mile run then 6x110m strides/accelerations. These felt really good and I feel like my speed is improving. We lifted upper body afterward and today I am a little sore but it is not anywhere as bad as last week! It wasn't a hard workout which was good for me but today is the 400m repeats (we are doing 5 i think! ekkkk!) Just as a precaution I got two bags of ice after practice and strapped one to my right knee and one to my right hamstring. Let's just say that driving a standard car home with an immobilized leg was kind of difficult! But I am not sore today and I feel rested.
I just started reading New Moon by Stephenie Meyer! It is pretty good so far!! I don't know if anyone else does this but I keep a list of all the books I have read (in a word document). It is nice to look back and see what I have read. I used to keep a more detailed record with plot and character descriptions but honestly I don't have time for that anymore!
On a sad note - a classmate of mine and friend passed away Sunday from Cystic Fibrosis. She was on the lung transplant list and they had a pair for her but she spiked a fever Saturday night so she wasn't able to go in for surgery. It has made me think and be thankful that I am healthy and have a good pair of lungs that allow me to run and enjoy everyday! Every day is a gift - keep running!
