Week In Review - Week 16 - 50K Training

Blarg. I don't know what else to say. It really feels like I have people (mainly BF & work issues, and a little bit myself) sabotaging my training and it is real hard to push through.

I am getting some miles done, and thankfully, this week was a cutback week, but it still didn't go as planned. Extra rest day and all.

Monday - Rest
Tuesday - 4 scheduled - 4 miles done. I have been enjoying doing intervals on my Tuesdays. Mixing each mile up with weights, or burpees, or cranking the incline on the treddy. Tuesdays are always my best days.
Wednesday - 10 scheduled - 4 miles done. This is one of the days I felt the BF sabotaged my training. Grumble, grumble, 3 hours of sleep, grumble. I walked this on the treddy. Not what I planned but oh well.
Thursday - 4 scheduled - 6 miles done. Did this outside. It was a totally great day outside. I didn't watch my pace and just ran this by feel. It was a great day.
Friday - Rest Yeah. Rest day in prep for Saturdays race day. I imbibed one too many martinis. But man. They were good martinis! Very, very good drinkies!!!
I recommend just ONE!
Saturday - 10 scheduled - 0 miles done. I had one too many of the drink above. Yea. I could NOT get out of bed. For some reason 2 drinks knocked me out and kept me there. I was all ready for my 5 miler race but it did NOT happen. It was supposed to be my first race with Team Beef, and that is what bums me out, but, eh. What can you do? I spent all morning and afternoon in bed.
Wasted on getting wasted
Sunday - 8 scheduled - 6 miles done. I did this outside. It took 4 miles to get into my groove. I waved to only 2 people. Both male. One was the only hydration vest pack wearer that I passed during this trot. lol. It's kinda funny how the people who have similar gear are really the only ones who you know are gonna wave when they pass. It's all cool.

Week 16 is going to be a big week for me. It's another weekend of a marathon training run on Saturday and my highest planned mileage before race day. As of Monday, I planned my meals in advance, all in individual containers and, fingers crossed the BF doesn't eat them.

I also ordered gaiters since the 50k trail will be kinda unpaved. I get rocks in my shoes when I am on a paved surface so I think this is something that I will be needing for race day.

How was your week? Do you ever feel there are people sabotaging or just plain jealous your training?


  1. Sorry you had a rough week. I hope that your work & BF issues can get resolved to ease some stress. I had a rough Saturday mostly because my dumb as* self thought it was a great idea to drink 4 beers that were 8.6%. There may have been more beer too, I just don't remember. Felt like crap all day Saturday, but managed to get in my run.

    1. Usually I fit in my run too (Drunk Diet lol) but this weekend was one day where I just didn't. What high octane beer were you drinking?

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
