Last week was another solid week of “getting back after it.” I bumped up my mileage a tad as I reduced the cross training miles…tapping out at 40 miles. The calf is feeling fantastic but I still have some tenderness that comes and goes where the bone was badly bruised. Sadly that can sometimes takes months to heal so I am icing daily…twice daily…thrice daily. Here is the short & sweet rundown:
Sunday- 75 miles on the bike.
Monday- A.M.- 7 miles P.M.-5 miles
Tuesday- A.M.- 90 minutes bike P.M.- 5 miles easy
Wednesday- 10 miles
Thursday- 2 1/2 hours long bike session
Friday- A.M.- 5 miles up speed. P.M.- 5 miles easy
Saturday- Super easy 5K race with my Bestie (daughter)
Guess what arrived in my mailbox Saturday afternoon? The Chicago Marathon 2011 results book. I was not aware that they send anything like that out so it was a nice mental pick-me-up and felt good to remind myself that I came in 43rd at a Worlds Marathon Major event. I am no where near that level of fitness right now but I WILL get back there and then some with a little time, patience, and commitment. The second picture was the first page of the booklet. Aww, we ALL did, didn’t we?!? 🙂
I know you don’t need any silly motivation to get you moving on Monday mornings but just in case here is a little fighter gem. Have a great week everyone! When it comes to training this week be a Fighter…unless you are fighting this guy…then be a hugger.
What workout do you have on tap for today?
I’ve got a double planned if my calf holds up well.
Do you know what film the last picture is from?
It’s one of my favorites.
