This was a low mileage week and I was ok with that. I didn’t build any recovery or fallback weeks into my plan, knowing that I’d take one when my body or life demanded. Coincidentally, my body demanded just before Christmas, so I finished out that week and took a recovery week.
I only ran 20 miles this week. That just seems so low, but it’s what worked with the time I had available to me for the four runs I chose to do. I did, however run them faster than I’ve been running: 7 miles at 9:55 average pace, 5.2 miles at 9:38, 4.3 miles at 9:33 and then an easy 3.5 yesterday to round out the week. Thankfully two of those runs were done outside with my dad which is always my favorite way to run.
I’ve continued to eat all my fruits and veggies, but between eating my weight in cookies and the reduced mileage this week, I’m feeling “soft”. Time to get back on track with the clean eating, instead of all the heavy things I added to my diet. At this point, we have one more “event” – NYE dinner. I’m sure it won’t be my healthiest dinner ever and there will probably be wine, but at least I’m heading back towards healthy eating…
One more week and I have a goal of it being my highest yet!
