This week has been a bit crazy. In response to the craziness, I have withdrawn a bit from the blogging world. I felt like I needed to take the pressure off of myself for awhile, and keeping up with all the reading and blogging and FBing and such was just becoming a bit too much. I think for the time being, we are going to be seeing a bit less of me. How will you stand it?
My next three weekends will consist of reffing tournaments. It was my hope that I would be able to fall back on my Ironman training and get my long run in on Thursday. Dee Dee having to work and yet more winter weather ruined those plans. I opted to to do a tempo run on the treadmill at the gym. I was feeling rather pleased with myself and it showed. I banged out a 9:17, 8:12, 8:00, and 7:50 mile, negative splitting and still having something left in the tank at the end. I had actually taken an unplanned rest day the day before, and it really helped.
While I’m sure that 7 soccer matches will somehow magically equate to a “long run”, it’s the following weeks schedule that has me concerned. It’s getting close to go time, and I need to be getting in these long runs so that I feel confident come race day.
Have a great weekend, y’all!
