(Of course I ran.)
It’s so hard not to. Good news, I taped my ankle and it felt fine. One of the knees is still off, but not painful. 🙂
I know, I know, I need a break. Because I’m a wee bit insane. 😉 But I already have a scheduled break of five days coming up in three weeks for my sister’s wedding… and I don’t want to be slacking off before that.
I also had my second gym visit today and it was fun. A bit on the elliptical, a bit on the stationary bike and an hour or so of back, shoulders, arms and stomach. I liked this gym a bit better than the last one I tried, but I’m still looking for one that’s gonna be “home”.
Here’s Week Sixteen in numbers:
Monday – rest
Tuesday – 8km
Wednesday – 2hrs in the gym
Thursday – 6km
Friday – rest
Saturday – 16km
Sunday – 6km
That’s a total of 36 kilometres, which is about 74% of what I was supposed to run. But considering this was straight after the half marathon, I think I can be excused. 🙂 It was also the week of my return to strength training and, as it’s summer and I have the time, I have been walking places every day. I estimate anything between 4-10km daily.
That should count for something as well. 😀
I am also now officially over sushi for the time being. I’ve been craving it almost every other day since May and as of today… I’m done! Can’t even look at another maki.
Tomorrow, it’s supposed to be 13km. 🙂 We’ll see. I’ll definitely listen to the knees and ankles and I really want my blisters to finally start healing instead of bleeding.
(But I do want to run. 13km falls right into my ideal run bracket when I’m feeling well.)
