Well, it’s been over 2 weeks since my last run. I have been swimming and biking like crazy. I guess this is helping me at least feel like I’m not losing all my speed -although who am I kidding… This week I upped the ante. I did two brick workouts instead of one. I also swam two miles one day instead of my usual one. My upper body has been SORE! I have really enjoyed swimming but this morning I did not want to go. The only reason I went is because I knew I wouldn’t be able to swim this weekend (pool is only open M-F) so this was the time to go.

Biking is is getting better. I’m not as sore as I once was so I think it’s time to increase the mileage and/ or speed. I have been watching Prison Break on Netflix while I bike so that is definitely helping pass the time!
I am debating on whether or not to go for a run tomorrow. I might do an easy 3 and see if I feel anything. I am just afraid to be let down. All this time off from running is hopefully fixing the problem! During the month of June I have only run 5 times. Way more cross training than usual…
Biking- 54 miles
Swimming- 15 miles
Elliptical- 7 miles
I decided not to race the Fast Firecracker 5K on July 4th. As much as I want that 18:xx 5K (and believe me I do!) the timing for this race is not right. I have not put in the miles and the necessary training. I still want to make it happen this year and I have a few 5K’s coming up in the fall that will help with that.
In the meantime, I’m trying to enjoy the change of pace with swimming and biking. Having all the kids home is also keeping me quite busy. Some day I will run again, right?! NYC training is supposed to start next week. Yikes!
