Monday, Day 10: Snowed in! Worked from home, even despite floor work start at my house. I was confined to our living room, while the rest of the floors in our house started getting sanded. I ventured outside a few times to take some photos - but logged ZERO miles, and didn't even make it to yoga. boo.
Tuesday, Day 11: Back to work, over lunch I utilized my work gym to squeeze in 3.25 miles. After a little walking to warm up and easing into a run, I maintained a quicker running pace to get done in 30 minutes. I did some upper body strengthening after my miles to even out all this work to my lower body.
Wednesday, Day 12: Today about mid-run my shins started to ache. I played with my speed, doing faster sprints with slower jogs to see if anything helped. Mainly I just gritted and bared it to crank out 4 miles.
Thursday, Day 13: Ufta. My shins were really hurting today. Guess those new shoes I got last week gave me a little delayed reaction, however, I still needed to get my miles in... So pushed through to get to 4.40 miles.
Friday, Day 14: After yesterday's run, my shins remained throbbing even when not running! So it being a Friday after a long week, my shins aching and feeling low motivations, I managed to get myself into the work gym to walk (and walk only) for 2.8 miles. Better than nothing I guess...
Saturday, Day 15: Ooops. Never got around to getting my miles in. I slept in a bit, then went to Lawrence, KS with some girlfriends for lunch at my very favorite place (La Parrilla) and to watch our Jayhawks play some basketball. By the time I got home, the hubs and I headed to our home to check in on the house (while breathing in a little too much fumes, I think), left with a headache and met my parents for dinner. We stayed at their house last night where I got a ton of sleep. So, no miles.
Sunday, Day 16: I got up this morning, at some breakfast, and after it was settled I use my parents treadmill to get in 3.21 miles. Not enough for today, so I am HOPING I will be able to get myself back on this evening for at least that much more. I'll update this post if I do... If I don't, I'm going to have to play some catch up tomorrow on my day off from work (MLK day).
So lets add this up. At the end of day 9, last week, I had done 33.51 miles. This week I did a total (so far) of: 17.70 miles. Added to last week and to date, I have run a total of 51.21 miles. Out of 100, I have 48.69 miles left to go in 15 days.
How has your week gone? Where are you all at?
