What Was Planned vs. What Happened
Monday 09/28/15: Body Pump | Body Pump
My first Body Pump class since May. Ouch. I felt weak and lame, but I’m glad I went. I just need to make the commitment to go every Monday, and I’m sure I’ll get stronger. What’s great is that my hip actually felt a lot better after class. Woo!
Tuesday 09/29/15: 3 Miles Easy | Rest
My hip was feeling better, but still sore, and I wanted to give it some time to heal up, so I just rested.
Wednesday 09/30/15: 3 Miles Easy + Tap Class | Tap Class
The hip was still tender, and it was rainy and cold, so I decided to bag runch, and just went to tap class in the evening. It’s getting more challenging, which is fun and frustrating all at the same time!
Thursday 10/01/15: Run Club Speed Workout | Rest
I was dressed and ready to go, but unfortunately, Ben had a SNAFU getting the car home in time, so I wasn’t able to make it. I was frustrated and let that get me into a funk, so I just stayed in instead of heading out for a solo run.
Friday 10/02/15: Rest | Rest
It was the annual meeting for Lyric Theatre Company, half business meeting and half party. I did a great job of sticking to my WLC compliant food list in spite of the tempting fare, and danced for an hour with my friends 🙂
Saturday 10/03/15: Run Club Short Run | 4 Miles with Run Club
This was my first time at a run club event in over a month, and it was so great to be back. The weather was absolutely perfect, and I got to run with my friend Mich. Because it was my first run in almost a week, it was a bit of a struggle fest, but we kept a decent pace and had fun chatting.
Sunday 10/04/15: 10 Miles Easy | 10 Miles
This is the first 10 mile training run I’ve ever done that didn’t feel like I was suffering the entire time. Unfortunately though, I felt sick to my stomach for several hours after I finished. I’m not sure why. Maybe I didn’t eat enough Saturday? Maybe the protein shake I made when I got home disagreed with me? Regardless, I took an hour long bath, and then an hour long nap, and felt mostly better.
For the next few weeks, I need to stay on track with my training. The past two weeks, I nailed my long runs but was lazy about doing shorter runs. The few weeks before that were the opposite. I need to make sure I’m doing both if I want to make it through a half marathon in November. Here’s the plan for this week:
- Monday: Body Pump
- Tuesday: 3 Miles Easy
- Wednesday: Tap Class
- Thursday: Run Club Speed Workout
- Friday: Rest
- Saturday: Run Club Short Run
- Sunday: 11 Miles
Does your stomach ever get upset after a long run? What do you do about it?
