Week 22 Recap

Last week was a solid week for workouts and getting ready for the upcoming triathlon, except that I still did not swim :( I went to Lucky's with Jason after my run on Saturday, but I wasn't feeling it and turned around after only a few yards. I kinda freaked out a bit, couldn't catch my breath, so I hope that doesn't happen at the tri on Saturday.

As you can see in the summary below, the week started great with a new milestone -- longest non-stop run yet -- which led to a slight injured foot. It hurt pretty bad on my run Wednesday, so I cut it short and spent the next few days doing RICE. Still fearful of getting hurt, I held back during my magic mile on Saturday, but I more than made up for it on Sunday with a great brick workout. This week is shaping up to be great so far -- workout wise -- and hope the good fortune continues to get me through my first tri of the season this Saturday.

Good luck on your tri!! You've run farther than me without walking - I think I've only made it about 4 miles or so. You're doing great!

Great job on the 7.5 miler nonstop! That's intense!

Congratulations on an awesome week. I hope your foot is doing better.

Thanks Kim! I don't know why I keep going further. I don't enjoy it as much when I don't take walk breaks and I'm usually achy but it does give mea great sense of accomplishment. I kinda want to see if I can run a half marathon without walking, but only at a training pace. I'd never race it without walk breaks or I'd earn a PW. LOL

Lauren, it was indeed. I was sore for a day or two, and I'm rarely sore after long runs even when I ran 20+

Thanks Mary. The foot is all better (see my last post). Yay! I think it was just bruised or something.
