This week, I have been a total slacker. I only got two short runs in, skipped swimming, skipped my strength workouts, and skipped tracking my eats on My Fitness Pal. Also, I abandoned most of the good eating habits I have been practicing since marathon training started.
And you know what? I'm ok with that!
I think it's pretty safe to say that my body just needed a bit of a rest this week, so I am looking forward to a good, strong 18-mile run tomorrow.
I can say with 100% certainty that I needed a mental break from the "gain two, lose two" frustrations that have been plaguing me for months, and after a week of abusing my body with carbs! and fast food! and other crap! I am totally ready to get back on the healthy eating train next week. In a way, it was a good reminder of how awful I feel when I don't fuel right.
Week in review:
Sunday: cross-train - stand-up paddleboarding (most. fun. ever)
Wednesday: run (5 miles/13:05 average)
Wish me luck on my longest run ever tomorrow!
