This past week’s training has been a tough one. Camp was rough on me this year. The dorm rooms were noisy and the beds were uncomfortable to say the least, but I can’t blame everything on camp. I must admit some of the choices I made (like staying out until 2am) definitely had an impact on my training…my old lady self can’t handle that anymore.
Monday: Recover from staying out too late Sunday night
Tuesday: Run 4 miles (this one was supposed to be 3.5 but I was in an unfamiliar city and am somewhat directionally challenged)
Wednesday: Recover from staying out too late Tuesday night
Run 3.5 miles DID NOT HAPPEN – why you ask? Because once again I stayed out way too late the night before
Friday: Rest – Mucho recovery from my week’s indiscretions
Saturday: 7 very tough miles – because I stupidly pretended to be in my early 20s for an entire week
Sunday: 3.5 miles – finally feeling back to my old self
Now, moving on to the food…
Band camp food SUCKS! I ate every meal in what was basically a high school cafeteria. Lots of salt, fat, and grease! I mean seriously, I came back 7 pounds heavier. Luckily, this was mostly water and after two days of my regular diet and LOTS of water I am back down to my regular weight. This week is already off to a much better start and speed work starts again Thursday!!!!!!
