Training Tuesday

After my dismal long run this weekend, I planned to go full force on today's short run so I could feel better mentally about dragging ass through 10 miles and feeling like my joints were going to explode. Alas, the weather had other ideas in mind.

It has now been raining for three days. It hasn't rained constantly, just during every time when I would like to take my regularly scheduled runs. The weather has given me a serious case of the blahs, but I'm trying to take this time to cross train and step back to consider why my run was so crappy.

Monday, I hit the elliptical for an hour and followed up with a brief strength routine. Today, I did Pure Cardio from Insanity. I sweat as much in 40 minutes as I did during my super slow and long run this week, so I consider it a success.

I made it to free yoga last week again, which was killer, again. My shoulder and abs really felt it the next day. I think I'll have to skip out on yoga this weekend in favor of shifting my training schedule to suit some other weekend doings. Oh, how I will miss the burn of yoga!

Up next: hopefully a five miler tomorrow, weather permitting, then a six miler the next day, topped off my an 11 mile long run at some point this week.

Mantra: The faster I run, the faster this will be over with.
