100 training: week 4

September 2, 2014 at 3:09 pm Leave a comment

so we all knew it was going to happen. it’s not like me to keep in check. to behave and actually follow a plan. saturday called for 14 miles … i did six. sunday called for five miles … i did 30. excessive? yes. but i couldn’t pass up the invite to do a birthday night run with andyM, tavi and a few others. and in my defense i am using a very light training plan that could probably use a little extra mileage here and there. and this coming week is likely going to be short. for starters i bailed on my run this morning. after a long weekend and a 30-miler a little extra sleep was just too tempting to pass up. and i have a tri this weekend so i’m not sure what kind of run mileage i can build in around it. and no, i haven’t swam or ridden once since my last! there’s a shocker huh? 😉

i felt decent on the 30. my ankle started to bother me around mile 20 which was probably a good thing as i had started contemplating throwing in a fourth loop and going for 40. but i was smart and stopped. and even more indicative of my increasing intelligence is that i went to the doctor today to have her reassess! she didn’t do new films but given where my pain is her thought is that it is still lingering joint issue from my talus rotation. chiro did a little more popping and adjusting and doctor gave me the all clear to keep training.

four weeks down. twenty to go.
