This was supposed to be a step/cut-back week. Last week was supposed to be 23 miles (I did 32.75) and this week was supposed to be taken down to 23 to give my body a "rest". Did I do this? Sorta. I ended the week with 32.75, only a mile less than last week. Whoops. The 10 miles of walking over the weekend probablly didn't help too much to the whole "rest" thing either. But, I am feeling MUCH better this Monday than I was last Monday.

I think this "step back" week came at a good time because my body was tired and just a little worn. Doing my LR on Sundays always makes the next week a little more rough, so this past week started out with me already being exhausted. Hopefully, because I only had a light workout this Sunday, this coming week will be better. Here's hoping!


  1. Maybe you can switch long runs to Saturdays so Sundays is more of a rest-ish day?

    1. That's the plan... sometimes I just have to move it to Sunday b/c Saturday is too busy. I TRY and PLAN to do them Saturday's... but, when life's too busy what are you gonna do? Oh well! I'll survive! :)
