Week 7 of BRF training is almost over! Despite my leg issues, now named MLA (mystery leg ailment), I am planning to make it through my long run today. Lots of foam rolling and trigger pointing has been helping some, and I am working hard to stay positive that enough babying it will help it resolve soon.
Tuesday: 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 1 (intro)
Wednesday: 3 mi slow on the treadmill (made it 1.25 miles before my leg started to hurt), arm + ab weights, 30 Day Yoga Challenge Day 2 (arms & chest)
Thursday: Elliptical simulated speed workout (55ish minutes), leg weights, 30 Day Yoga Challenge Day 3 (yoga for posture)
Friday: 30 Day Yoga Challenge Day 4 (abs pt. 1)
Saturday: 3 mi at work (30:00), 30 Day Yoga Challenge Day 5 (abs pt. 2). Demoed some Asics GT-2000’s that our Asics Tech Rep brought for the run and I liked them almost as much as my Kayanos!
Sunday: 30 Day Yoga Challenge Day 6, walking around Montreal!
12 mi SLOW was on the docket for this morning, but I had another sleepless night last night. I don’t run well after a bad night sleep so I’m just going to do it tomorrow. (Monday) My leg starts cramping up when I stop after I run, so I’m attempting to ditch the intervals for this one and just push through.
July miles: 63.27. Much lower than I’d like, but I expected that with missing almost a whole week in Maryland, not hitting a couple of long runs, and my MLA.
Total 2015 miles: 467.92. Yeah that yearly mileage goal isn’t going to be met. I’m good at missing goals.
