An Update…

Processed with MOLDIV

This week I feel like all I’ve done is work, train, eat and sleep and it’s exhausting!

I have hit all my training targets so far this week… Until today. Thursday’s I work anywhere from 10+ hours. I could have fit my trainer workout in my lunch break but I may have had a nap instead! My Garmin got sent back to be replaced yesterday so I would really have no idea what I was doing apart from time anyhow. I needed the sleep and my trainer wasn’t a critical session so I think it will be ok!

Having no Garmin feels like I’ve lost a limb- I have no idea what the time is and no idea how I’ll count my laps at the pool tomorrow as I zone out and lose count alllll the time!

Yesterday was cross country- Kath and I done long course which was longer than expected (9.8km according to Strava) with a mountain thrown in the middle. I tried to take a video of said mountain but I clearly can’t work my GoPro yet!

This weekend I have two 3 hour bricks- no idea how that will end up but I’ll give it a go!

Heres hoping my Garmin comes home soon! 😀

Race Day in 31 days!! Eeeeep!



Cross Country

 So after my little tantrum yesterday about excuses I decided I would still go to cross country but walk the short course.
The start line,the heat of the moment and the day got to me and i ended up doing the 4km medium course. I took my GoPro so it was mostly running with some walking and photography. My legs felt fine and they are today too so I’m glad I gave them a little stretch out on the hills!

I’ve already done my training for the day- an interval trainer session. I thought I may vomit at one point but I pushed thru that knowing that my training now will pay off on race day. (Come on, I can’t get slower!)

Happy Days!  

How do you combat the excuses you give yourself? Leave a comment and let me know!
