Phew! Another week done. I gotta admit, this training plan is kicking my butt big time. Aron warned me, but its just taking a lot to get used to multiple long runs each week. Aron, I am afraid for week 5... Gulp.
Never mind. I can do this. I. CAN. DO. THIS.
Is it concerning to be this wrapped up in mental trickery so early in training?!?
Maybe its just the cold Canadian winters that are getting to me.....
This is just the beginning. Thank goodness its only a 12 week program.
Random week 2 stats/thoughts:
- lactic threshold workouts suck during but feel so good afterwards
- I think pfitz designed this plan for people that can run 12 miles in under a hour, thus making it a great mid week workout.
-I particularly enjoy a 15 mile run, where I am being whipped not only by wind but by ice pellets. Its AWESOME.
-I like the challenge even if it sounds like I am whining.
-I am starting to feel stronger, although not faster yet, but I am in the endurance phase now
-my stick I ordered on-line can't come soon enough. Currently poor Hubs is rolling out my muscles with the following:
Don't worry I don't bake pies, ever. Its probably the most use this pin has ever seen. It kinda works....
On the eating clean front, its going well. I have starting a new blog to report some recipes. Its called Cooking on the Run. I don't intend to be fancy with this blog, I will simply write the recipe with a mini review. This may change as I find myself taking pictures of all of the food I eat. I have a bunch of recipes to post yet, but there are a few to start off.
Happy running everyone and thanks for reading!
