I did a 5 mile long run on Sunday, and that finished week 2. Monday was a rest day and Tuesday was 3 miles E + 4x20 sec S. I did not manage the run yesterday, so did it this morning instead. Since today is a cross training day, my plan is to fit in some stair climbing this evening, and hey, maybe even a few weights!
I was annoyed at missing yesterday's run, but I got up too late, and the choice was to do my Buddhist meditation or go for a run. I chose the former, thinking I could do the latter after work. Well, after work I ended up going for a coffee with a colleague and was exhausted by the time I got home. I was in bed by 9pm!
Up early this morning, and did that run, will have time for a smidgen of meditation, but I can do it with calm tonight! So, you may remember that I have done two stair climbs since moving to Boston. I usually do them as a vertical run. Well, my goal for next year's climb is to race it competitively!
Stairs are hard work, but there is a certain delight in the agony, and it is fun too. Well, off to sort some lunch out. Yesterday was a disaster.....I did not make any lunch and ended up eating half a wilted salad at work and a bag of crisps. Yikes! It got worse. I had a rather large slice of banana and nut bread with my colleague, and for dinner three quarters of a box of chocolate covered peanuts. All in all, it was a nightmare. I felt sick and had to have large handfuls of Citrosodina...which has quite a salty taste. So new day, and no more rubbish!
