Things that are Week 18 of Marathon Training
Monday: I had an appointment with my chiropractor and I’ve been having this soreness in my ankle and really wanted to have him look at it. Come to find out it was due to me trying to keep on my sandals (lifting my toes up to try and keep the shoes on). So he did a little electrical acupuncture, and it felt a lot better. He told me to not wear sandals for the next two weeks. Thankfully my IT band hasn’t been acting up (thank goodness!) so I didn’t really need him to look at that (and I’ve been running a lot more too!).
After I went to Barre class, nothing too exciting there.
Tuesday: I had on my training to do at least 3 miles, and I didn’t feel like waking up early to go running. I felt I needed that extra hour of sleep so I didn’t go. I also got my fertility meds in the mail. So that was a little exciting and scary (The amount of money I have to pay out of pocket for these things is seriously ridiculous!).
Wednesday: Barre class and this wonderful quote for the day:
Thursday: Went running after work at the gym, and it was so so hot inside – I seriously felt I was outside running in the heat! I have never had sweat drip into my eyes before, and it did! I had to pause my workout to get a shirt out of my bag to use for my sweaty eyes. I seriously was wanting to die, but I kept running knowing that I just had 10 more minutes to go.
Friday: Rest day!
Saturday: Ran 16 miles! Holy cow! That was a hard run – and thankfully my head was in the run, so I was able to just run and not care. Which made running that 16 miles even better! Chase was a sweet hubby and dropped me off, and then I ran home.
I told him to be ready to come get me, because my ankle had given out on me a few times on Friday at work. I have been praying a lot more before my runs – like pray for my safety, and I also have prayed that I’m able to finish the run without injury. My prayers have been answered and I am so so thankful that they have been.
Sunday: Rest day!
Total Miles for the week: 20.46
