Yikes, a couple days late on this.

Saturday: 5 mile run. 300 abs after.

Sunday: Unplanned off day. Skiing and waxing at the Eastern Qualifier

Total Miles 32.9

Not the week I’d hoped for at all. I’m happy that I planned well enough to get my long run in on Friday but frustrated that I got thwarted on other days with such a good start to the week. I feel like I’m walking on a tightrope trying to balance reasonable mileage with enough sleep to be functional throughout the day. On Saturday, for example, we were supposed to be early call and should have been out by about noon. Instead, we were there until 5 and I had to get up early Sunday to head to Craftsbury to coach. Instead of pushing it and getting up to run before Craftsbury, I gave myself the extra 90 minutes of sleep so that I could safely drive 90 minutes each way and get through the day. Definitely the better choice for Sarah the coach but not the best outcome for Sarah the athlete.

This week has started off much the same, with a very long day yesterday and miserably long post-call day today. Trying to stay positive and tell myself that it’s just 3 more weeks until I get to go to California and get some focused training in.
