First off... Since this blog is dedicated to healthy living and marathon training, and for whatever reason, I really really really want to talk about football right now, I started writing in my other blog again, NCAA lives here. I am always afraid to write about sports because there is so much I don't know, but I figured I could think of some things that were in my safe zone. So, if you like football and/or Clemson, please visit it. My post today was top 4 games I've attended as a Clemson Fan.
To review last weeks training -
Monday - rest
Tuesday - rest
Wednesday - morning intervals and evening yoga
Thursday - swim
Friday - run
Saturday - game day
Sunday - 9.2 miles with mom
I'm glad I got in one extra day of cross training but I really NEED to get in 2 days. It's so hard because I've got so much going on right now.
This week -
Monday - rest (not because I want to, but simply because of my schedule)
Tuesday - Swim
Wednesday - Morning intervals and yoga in the evening
Thursday - I've got to figure out a way to ride my bike this day. I don't know how.
Friday - Run
Saturday - I have so much crap going on this day, I don't know WHAT i'm going to do
Sunday - run - I'm going to shoot for 10 miles
Bleh bleh. This is hard. I should NOT have signed up for a marathon during football season, yoga teacher training and putting on this event downtown. The combo of the 3 is making my life hard.
Yesterday's long run. It did not go well initially because as I reached mile 1, I realized I had to poop. Not good. So mom and I decided to run to my grandmother's house. The last mile, we had to walk because I thought I was going to poop in my pants. My issue is that I went before I left the house. What has been my problem lately? I have to go EVERY SINGLE TIME I RUN. It's so frustrating because it can slow me down big time. AAAAUUUUUGGGGGHHHHHH.
I know that was gross but it's a serious problem for distance runners and I'd like to figure out what to do other than get up at the butt crack dawn to make sure I go all the way. I hate getting up early. I will NEVER train for a marathon during football season again. You can bet that.
