My calves are pissed and cranky. They tried to throw a coup over night and kick me out of my own body. Together they attacked me, repeatedly. They kicked my literal ass. Quads. Calves. Feet. All of them. I found awake and fighting not to crawl into the kitchen for a banana or something, anything! I forced myself up onto two painful quaking legs and forced myself to get 4oz of chocolate almond milk to help.
My 4:30am alarm and intent to finish up my week with a 4-5miler?
So my weekly goal of 20miles was not met today, and depending on how my legs work today I'm not sure I'll push it for tomorrow. If I really want to work on the distance and more endurance I really need to try and get outside anyway. I'm afraid it doesn't really count that I can run 5+ miles on a treadmill (I do fluctuate my inclines though!) but can't handle my breathing outdoors.
Monday - 5.04 miles (personal best distance and time!) 55:05
Tuesday - 3.25 miles (4.7 walk)
Wednesday - 3.10 miles (4.8 walk)
Thursday - 4.0 miles - 44:34
Total weekly miles: 15.39 as of Friday morning.
I'm in the hole 4.61miles, so I'm going to see if I can sneak away for an hour and get it done before Sunday.
In addition to my mileage challenge, I did return to my mid-day classes since my surgery last month. Granted my first day back was Insanity Cardio day. Hello? Perhaps that is why my quads are rebelling?? But its all good, I can do this.....
with or without my legs cooperating.
How did your week add up??
If you had a rough week (like me) do you change up next week's goals?
