So, I guess I am recovered? I'm getting there, at least. Here's my week in review:
M: P90X Core Synergetics
T: 5.13 (a.m.)@8:13 pace
5.05 (p.m) @8:03 pace
W: 10.98 @8:03 pace
T: 6 @ 7:36 pace
F: 9 @ 8:03 pace (on TM b/c of storms)
S: 6 @ 8:15 pace
S: 16 @ 7:28 pace w/ 4 @ 6:52, 6:55, 6:42, & 6:51
Total: 58.31 miles
I've decided to get back into the habit of wearing the Garmin for every run. I think I might be sabotaging my training a bit by running recovery runs too quickly. I'm wearing the Garmin in hopes of keeping myself grounded.
In positive news, I've been accepted into the Brooks ID program. This is an exciting way for me to connect better to the racing world, and I'm really excited! Plus, the deal on clothing is really great, so that always helps!
Another plus is that I've FINALLY met Glover's Ideal Racing Weight for my height. (Actually today I was one lb UNDER that goal weight.) I'm feeling good, energy wise, so I don't think I've been starving myself or anything like that. With that being said, I am not convinced that this weight loss is going to actually help me. A good point someone made on RWOL is that I need to TRAIN and race at this weight to see results. I was pretty much there for Hartford (only 3 lbs over), but hadn't been that weight for long. Hopefully I will see the benefits of my smaller backside soon.
My spirits are picking up for San Antonio, mostly b/c I get to see my DEAR friend, Pace Runner. I can't wait!!!
Run strong, friends!
