Last week I feel I did pretty good on the eating until this weekend. I was having issues with dehydration but as the weather got warmer, I got better.
Since the temps are supposed to drop this week, I will need to stay on top of my hydration to prepare for my thanksgiving turkey trots.
I did very well on the sleep last week averaging almost 8.5 hours a night but this weekend I definitely fell off with so much homework piling up.
My goal for this week to try and get as close to 8 hours as I can. I know it'll help me deal with stress better as well as help me be prepared for my races.
Monday: Rest day
Tuesday: run with acceleration and cadence drills-about 2.7 miles
Wednesday: Running Strength DVD
Thursday: speed work- 6 x 400 (2:06,2:10,2:10,2:02,2:06,1:38)
Friday: Rest Day
Saturday: Blacklight Run and walking around Disneyland
Sunday: walking around Disneyland
Monday: rest day
Tuesday: run with 4x400 aiming for 2:06
Thursday: LA Turkey Trot 5k and 10k
Saturday: 4 mile run
Sunday: Rest day
I definitely had a great weekend with the Blacklight Run and experiencing Seasons of the Force at Disneyland. However from that fun, I slacked on my projects and I'm feeling the pressure! Today at work, I'm going to sit down and break up my assignments to try and get rough drafts done by Tuesday so I can spend Wednesdayediting them. I want to be able to relax on Thanksgiving and not feel stressed.
I am also hoping to get a new car this week! I haven't talked about it much on here, but after my accident before the Long Beach Marathon there was a lot of drama and basically my car was deemed a total loss so their insurance paid me out. Now that I have the money, I've been shopping cars more seriously and have narrowed it down to 3. I'm going to test drive them tomorrow and pick one. As you can tell, I'm not much of a car person so I'm very basic in what I want: 4-door sedan, Bluetooth capability, maybe a rear facing camera, maybe navigation, a nice trunk, automatic door locks.
Finally having a car after 7 weeks will be a Godsend! It is so much harder to run errands and go grocery shopping!
Other than that, I'm excited for the Thanksgiving holiday but I am a bit sad I'm not going home to see my family. But with all of the homework I have, I would be so stressed!
How was your week?
