A half-decade flirtation with running has grown into a commited relationship. I started following a ketogenic diet Nov 21st 2013 with the hope that it will help me with my Shamrock 15k Run in March, and then with whatever feat I set for myself after that. I have a deep love for various TV shows and movies that I quote relentlessly with no apologies. At the end of the day, I am more positive than negative and I will curl up with a good book when the world refuses to cooperate with me.About Progress Me Training Ask Submit
I’ve been getting freaked out about Hood to Coast BECAUSE I’VE BARELY BEEN RUNNING.
This weekend went Brewfest on Thursday after a sprint workout, Brewfest on Friday after zero workouts (hung out with the boy the night before/morning of, Brewfest on Saturday, SO hungover because we found a bunch of old friends. Sunday, I wasn’t hungover so much as my body was fighting me back for what I had been doing to it since Thursday. I got a good amount of sleep Saturday night (ehh more like Sunday morning) and thought I could wake up and run this morning. Nope. Way too tired.
Anyways, I’m freaking out a lot, but I also shouldn’t be. Goals:
This week - run a 6 miler, a sprint workout, and then put in 3-3-3 over 36 hours.
Next week - run a 7 miler, a sprint workout, and a 3-4-3 over 36 hours.
Next next week - run an 8 miler, a sprint workout, and a 4-3-4 over 36 hours.
Week of Hood to Coast - 6 miles on Monday, 2 miles on Wednesday, rest until the event.
Like it should pan out. But I really wanted to be more prepared. On the other hand, having a social summer has made me really happy. Dating was fun, nearly exclusively seeing Andrew is fun, having twin time is always good, my job is good, and this weekend it rekindled my friendship with Jacade, a girl I haven’t seen since I was 16. She’s been through a lot in that time period, but surprisingly the people we grew into have been getting along great.
