I know, I know. I'm several days into week 5 already, but here's my training report for Week 4. Better late than never, right?
It was nothing very impressive this week anyway.
Here is what it was supposed to look like:
But I spent most of the week resting, so here is what it actually looked like:
Mon, 3/5 - rested
Tue, 3/6 - It was such a beautiful day! I couldn't resist walking home from work.
Wed, 3/7 - rested
Thu, 3/8 - rested
Fri, 3/9 - I dragged my husband to the pool. I thought swimming would be lower impact on my knee, but I could really feel my knee when I swam. It didn't stop me, so it wasn't debilitating - just uncomfortable.
Sat, 3/10 - rested
Sun, 3/11 - Let's just say restless! I couldn't stand not running any longer, so I decided to test the waters. If my knee was bothering me too much, I'd end my run early. I figured I'd probably get in 2-6 miles. I surprised myself by going over 7!
I discovered this week that if I'm not running, I find myself not doing anything. I know I should have been spending time doing core work or low impact cross training, but it's so hard to motivate myself when running is off the table.
Now, I have a half marathon in 3 days, and I think I'll be okay. :-)
What do you do when you're not running? Unfortunately, I end up being a bum - watching more TV than I should and surfing the Internet. Ugh!
