Despite how motivated, and successful, I was with my training last week, this past week I had a lot of difficulty fitting my workouts in. Between multiple doctors appointments for little man and I and a couple of late afternoons at school with students, post work workouts were difficult to fit in last week. The weekend was also extremely busy, as my dad was in town and I tried to spend as much time with him as I could. We also started packing for our racecation over the weekend. Needless to say, my workouts were the first thing to get cut during this extremely busy week.
I’m bummed that I had to miss my last long run yesterday. I had planned to do my third set of back to back runs this past weekend, to help me be as prepared as possible for the back to back races that I’ll be running next weekend, and ran four easy miles with little man on Saturday. However, there was just too much going on yesterday (little man was also very fussy over the weekend), and I just couldn’t carve out the time to get a six mile run in. I’m disappointed, but I also know that since I’m not running either race this coming weekend for time, that I’m still prepared to run all 19.3 miles.
I plan to run one more time before we leave Wednesday evening, and then the rest of my workouts for the week will be walking around the parks at Disney. While I’m disappointed that my training didn’t end the way that I had hope for it to, I’m excited that race week is finally here, and I cannot wait to head down to Florida!
