Things that are Dopey Challenge Training Week 4
Monday: The gym was closed again… A pipe had burst so they keep closing on the weekends to fix it. Because of that I wasn’t able to go to barre, which meant no workout.
Tuesday: I ran 3.03 miles at the gym, because it was late and I wasn’t able to get outside before it got dark. I did sumo squats, reverse lunges and 25 push ups that were the exercises my chiropractor gave me.
Wednesday: I had scheduled a mile run, and I ended up running 1.12 miles in 8:54 It wasn’t my fastest mile, but I was definitely pushing it the whole run. You know that feeling you get like you are gonna puke? That’s the feeling that I had the entire run. But while I was running I used what @hungryrunnergirl would always say: I am COMFORTABLE. I don’t know about you, but that helped me be more comfortable running at a faster pace.
Thursday: Ended up overbooking myself and didn’t get the scheduled 3 miles in. I met with my chiropractor, he massaged my legs out, and told me to make sure I keep working on my strength exercises.
Friday: Ran 3.01 miles, which felt great. I guess I just need to get used to running in the dark, cause it was a night run. I made sure I had a flasher on my wrist, and that I had a reflective vest.
Saturday: Chase and I had something scheduled for Saturday morning. So I thought I can run later in the day and I just need/want to run 11 miles. I started running the first mile, and I felt like I was going to pass out and throw up. I sat down for about 5 minutes, and felt a little better. I ended up walking to my in-laws house who happen to live near the trail I love running on and Chase picked me up. I ended up running 2.91 miles. It must have been the chocolate milk I had before my run, and now I know not to drink that stuff before I go out for a run.
Lesson learned: shorter runs are best for trying new things. Though, I had no idea it was going to give me tummy issues.
Sunday: Rest Day
