So, here I am feeling like a slacker! These past few weeks have been nuts and I missed a big long run and a bunch of shorter runs. I am a bit bummed, but am hopeful that it hasn’t hurt my training.
On the day of my 14 miler I was holed up in bed with a pounding headache. I just couldn’t pull it together enough to go out and run for a couple of hours and by the time I felt better it was dark out and conditions weren’t prime for running solo.
Week 6 proved to be a challenge due to a mix of scheduling conflicts and an unwelcome bout of vertigo. I only ran twice that week and when I went out for my 10 miler I could feel the difference in my performance over my prior 10 mile run. I didn’t push myself as much as I could have and I was still breaking in new shoes so I am hopeful that it played a role in my slightly slower pace.
I am a little nervous for my upcoming week and haven’t quite figured out how my body is going to feel jumping from 13 miles to 16. I’m just going to have to play it by ear and see how it all pans out.
