The Week of 01/27/2014: Trying to get it back

The motivational dry spell continued into this week.  It's definitely a problem when I miss a morning run.  I either don't get an evening run in at all, or if I do, I cannot get up again the next day and the cycle repeats.

On the bright side I did really well in getting sufficient sleep (Averaged 7:08 per night in January).

It bodes on me that I need to really work on my nightly routine and getting to bed at a reasonable hour - This will be critical as I get into my "Serious" workouts as I prep for Grandma's.

Monday 01/27/2014

Skipped planned 6 mile recovery run

Tuesday 01/28/2014

Skipped planned 5 mile  with 100m strides

Wednesday 01/29/2014

Ran a 3 mile RR on treadmill in the evening (Had a 6 mile RR planned)

Wednesday night Weigh-in:  238.2

Thursday 01/30/2014

I slept in & skipped a planned 6 mile treadmill LT workout (5x800).  Trying to follow an evening run with a morning run back to back isn't working so well.

Friday 01/31/2014

Got in my scheduled 2000 yard swim workout in the morning.
Main set:  5 x 200 yards with 1:00 rests

Saturday 02/01/2014

Due to missing so many runs over the last few weeks, I decided that I am nowhere near where I expected to be at this point so I re-did my running schedule and changed today's planned 12 mile long run.  Instead I ran some Yassos on the treadmill:

  • 1200 Warmup 
  • 5x:  800@5:00, 400@3:45 
  • 1200 Warmdown

Sunday 02/02/2014
Rest day scheduled, but I did do a makeup recovery run.

Sunday night Weigh-in:  240.2
