What? I know, crazy title. I try to keep up with catchy phrases and sometimes flop (see example above) So, the training continues. I can’t believe I am still in one piece. The icy cold blasting 5 mile run of a couple of weeks ago seems like a century ago. I really felt the cold and struggled again to breathe, but we made it in one piece and were able to bloody mary celebrate afterward which made the entire thing worth it. Then on to the rest of the week…sunday off (hangover). Monday, run outside solo (so boring I thought I would die) but was met by neighbors at the end of the ride with chicken tortilla soup and a margarita. So very nice. Tuesday, swim (getting boring) Wednesday, evening 5 K run that was heinous beyond all measure. K totally went off on the “coaches” and I think we were both just short of bailing. Luckily we got a bit of a pep talk from the trainer who had let us down earlier with all of his talk of “LEAVE NOTHING ON THE PATH DURING THIS 5K”. “YOU SHOULD BE TIRED AFTER THIS!” I am thinking….duh, I am tired walking to the car, let alone running a 5 k with a bunch of crazies in February on the Chicago lakefront.
Anyhoo, we made it. Thursday, swim (yawn). Friday, Saturday off then a 6 miler on the lakefront Sunday. Fabulous fun run.
The mid-week run is tomorrow morning. I am hopeful this one is better than the last. My body is taking a beating here.
