First full week of workouts and work itself made for a tough adjustment. Like anything else, it got easier as the week progressed! My body will eventually adjust to the double workout days. Yes..I said double. It goes something like this...wake up...M2 spin class...go to work...meet Hez at the track after work for 80 minute run...feel my head spin post track workout. I can't tell if I was a little dizzy due to nutrition or because we were running around the track for so long that I was actually getting dizzy..? The track/run workouts are getting tougher to get through..but not nearly as tough as convincing my body to actually get up the morning after! But like I said, it'll get better with time!
Sunday, we had our coached workout. On the schedule was an open water swim at Aquatic Park followed by a 60 minute run. I didn't make it to the swim but showed up for the run. Because of parking construction in the Van Ness parking lot, I couldn't find any of my teammates. I was contemplating whether I should go home and get back in bed or do the run myself. As I was walking towards my car, I heard, "Hey Yi!" It was Raf..my decision was made..I was doing the run. On the second part of our run, Alex joined in. I made Alex run with me back to my car as I agreed to drive us back to Sports Basement..where everyone had gone after the swim. It's January..everyone and their grandmas are out running..keeping up with their New Year's Resolutions I assume..it'll be interesting to see how it all thins out in months to come!
The mileage I ran this week was the most I've ever ran in one week. Everything is still feeling good..well with the exception of my left knee. It's getting a little sore but feels fine when I run...so I am not going to worry yet..just going to work on willing it and foaming rolling it away!
