Oh the things we do for bling!
I never really do weekly training recaps but I feel like once or twice a training session I tend to blog about my training. I don't do weekly recaps for a couple reasons.
1. I think seeing post after post after post of someones miles/splits can be boring and mine aren't that impressive.
2. I pay for my training plan and I don't know if my running club would appreciate me posting it all over the place.
3. I never really stick to that plan anyways.
With that being said, I will share with you all that this is supposed to be my peak week. Supposed to be.
I haven't really been doing a stellar job at sticking to my training and this is the first training session where I've really slacked on my miles.
I didn't run Monday because I got a massage. Remind me someday to tell you about my love/hate relationship with massages. It's mostly a hate relationship...
I plan to run a tempo run with my group tomorrow after work. Fingers crossed!
Saturday is our longest run of the session. 20 miles.
Then I'll slide into taper mode. It kind of feel like I've been in that mode since January. But hopefully, come Saturday, I'll get the job done. I'm already mentally prepping for that day and asking myself all of life's serious questions...
Compression socks or no compression socks?
Do I tape my feet or not tape my feet?
Do I take 4 or 5 packets of nutrition with me?
Do I take my iPod along or no?
And OMG, what am I going to wear? What's the weather going to be like?
I've been seeing my Chiropractor again. We have an on-again off-again relationship. Right now we are on and I'm happy with how my appointments are progressing.
I've had two this week and I have 3 scheduled for next week.
Today we did some Active Release Therapy and Dry Needling.
I've had the needling done before and it didn't really bother me, but today..OUCH!
He's working on two separate issues. My plantar fasciitis has been acting up and I have a compressed nerve on the inside of my foot.
I'm not too worried about these issues. I've been dealing with my plantar fasciitis for a while now and he seems to be confident that he can fix up the nerve problem. So if everything goes according to plan, I should be able to show up and run the Garmin Marathon in a couple weeks.
