I definitely indulged and splurged at the Food and Wine festival but was able to do a quick reset with lots of fruits and veggies and was able to carbload successfully for avengers half weekend.
This week since I don't have a real race or long run until Thanksgiving, I will be focusing on drinking lots of water (the cold weather has me a bit off and I'm feeling dehydrated more often), eating a lot of fruits and veggies and going back to my low carb eating ways. I put a roast in the crock pot before heading out.
I've been sleeping around 7 hours a night but I'm still pretty jet lagged as I keep waking up before 6! I'm hoping to get back on track this week. Last night I got over 8 hours a sleep and before the avengers half, I got 7 hrs and 20 min. That's going to be my new goal for Disney races!
Monday: Rest day but walking around Epcot and MK-about 9 miles
Tuesday: rest day but walking around MK and Epcot and airport-7 miles
Wednesday: 5 min of weights and rest. I was so jet lagged all day!
Thursday: cadence drill with some race paces thrown in- about 2.6 miles
Friday: rest day but added in some yoga
Saturday: Avengers 10k
Sunday: Avengers Half
Monday: rest day
Tuesday: run with acceleration drills and cadence drills about 2.7 miles
Wednesday: trying the Running Strength video
Thursday: 3 mile run with cadence and acceleration drills
Saturday: Blacklight Run
Sunday: Rest day but walking around Disneyland
Getting back in the routine has been a bit more challenging than I would have liked. But now that s majority of my races are done, I feel good!
My goals for this week are to start working on my final papers due (one I already outlined before I left, so crazy I got that done!) and one is a group project. The more I can break off this weekend, the better. Also I need to put up our Christmas decorations-I miss having my tree up!
How was your week?
