Today I went out to take photo's of the apple trees growing in my neighbors garden...walking I noticed that all the * ladies I train * had their shoes at their front doors...
As we all do Trail runs or walks our shoes get very muddy and get left outside to dry before we bring them in.
Today I saw that each one of us had our shoes at our doorstep, so without them knowing, I took these photo's.
The first pair are my Trailer shoes.
Last Friday I crashed.....wow, I was totally exhausted.
My face looked like I'd aged 10 years when I looked at myself in the mirror that morning, I could hardly speak....I was finished
I know my mistake was to do the interval run of 8km the day after running the 18 km's
Never going to make that mistake again...The day after a long run, I WILL REST.
Training for last week review :~
Kettlebell 3 x
Elliptical intervals ~ 30 mins at gym
Indoor cycling at home ~ 1 hr ~ 30 mins of intervals
Taught Boxing class for 1 hour
Ran 39 km ~ 4 days
I'm loving the intervals I've added into my training and have some new Kettlebell moves which I love as this keeps me excited and motivated.
This is the second week I'm doing this and finding that although its my off day I still keep to plan with my 3 meals, its my snacks where I add other foods and will have a glass of wine or a beer on my off day.
I sure don't see my off day as a day to PIG out!!!
Wednesday this week I plan to run 20 km ( 12.42 miles ) with my neighbor who is running the half marathon with me on the 4 September. This will be my last long run before the race....
So far the forecast says Wednesday the weather is going to be GOOD!
The way I see it, isn't necessarily the way you see it.
