Last night was a two mile rehab run fresh off the 6.2 mile race on Saturday. I have a long way to go to get back to where I was but the knee is holding up very well.

3.6 mile run/walk tonight as I continue to get the knee stronger. My stamina is in the crapper and I have a long road back to better fitness. I am just hoping to get enough back so I can have a decent race in Virginia Beach. jocolor

You will Roger!! One day at a time...

It's been a busy week. My son needs a ride to/from work so I've had to get up an hour early and then my sister who lives 1+ hours away has had car issues so I've made a trip each night to her house. I did run 6 miles yesterday afternoon. It was hot and hard, but I DID IT!! Actually, it wasn't an awful as I thought it was going to be though I suffered through the last 2 miles (should have stopped at 4).

I slept in this morning...and will do my workout later.

5.5 sweaty miles this morning. The sky was clear but I could still see lightning? Very strange. Tonight I work out with my trainer again. I am dead tired just thinking about that.

Grace - YAY! for no pain or twinges!

Did an ~1.75 mile warm-up jog to the track yesterday, then did my 6x400m repeats. They hurt... form felt off, arm swing was weak... but they are done. I think my right arm was tired from running the warm-up with a relatively heavy water bottle.

My fingers are crossed for you Grace!

Katie - Be excited! It's great.

Steph - Great job.

I did a little over 4 miles last night. It was warm. I tried to push the speed up a little but my body just didn't want to. Both my hammies felt tight but no pain or soreness. I'm kind of sad that my legs and lungs are revolting.

This has not been a good week for xtraining. I'm just not getting to bed early enough to wake up that extra hour early. Last night, my meeting went later than I expected and when I got home decided to play ping-pong with my son instead of my workout. I won one game. he won 4

This morning... Sleep won! I have 8 miles on the schedule for tonight and then to bed EARLY!! (I know...Good Luck with that!)

Ping pong is a workout Annie! And spending time with loved ones is a good workout for the heart. Smile

Sleep won over for me this morning as well. Was only planning an easy 3 miles so I will try to squeeze them in tonight or tomorrow morning.

Well I chose to sleep in this morning instead of the 3.5 I need. I will do those tomorrow morning instead. I re-arranged my workouts with my trainer, moved him to Monday instead of Wednesday. With the Wednesday mileage increases I can't run and do strength training in the same day. I was pooped last night.

It's a real balancing act to train for a half marathon /marathon and incorporate some strength, xtraining into your schedule and not burn yourself out. Good for you for listening to your body and knowing when to make a change.
