So I had a tiny headache for a good part of the weekend and deferred from any working out.
This week I am feeling fine and back at it. I have been in the pool for a couple of swims and out for a 5 mile and a 6 mile run. Legs have been heavy, but it has also been quite warm which never helps.
Work has been very busy and we underwent some major change this week as my boss left the company. A few longer days as we plan the next few weeks until someone new comes in. There is also an added concern as it is difficult getting adjusted to someone new after you have worked for the same boss for almost 9 years. But I am an adaptable critter and I will do just fine.
On the workout side I am starting to think about just taking the rest of the summer off from competition and look towards a 1/2 and a full marathon in the fall. By then it will be time to start hunkering down for Coeur d'Alene. I have already been looking at some training plans and figuring out how I can adapt them to incorporate some of the Run Smart principles for training. The book has been very helpful and as previously mentioned does largely support a lot of my beliefs around effective and efficient training. I really like how the author helps to put training into perspective with the rest of your life to maintain a healthy balance. So I am confident I can come up with something that will help me meet my goals without burning me out.
Have a great week!
