I started work last Monday and I have to say I'm more excited now than ever! This past week was all training at my local office, and then this week will be all national training in New Jersey! I was actually able to get in my normal amount of miles this past week running-wise but was worried about being able to run in New Jersey. Our schedule they set up has us busy breakfast to after dinner plus I'm going to have a roomate and I don't want to wake her up at 4am so I can go run on a treadmill. It just doesn't really make sense. Thank goodness this is the last training like this, after this point I'll always have a single room to myself so I can go ahead and wake up and run at any given time of the night :D.
But on that note, I emailed my "coach" and she gave me permission to take Monday-Friday off! I haven't taken a week off in a lonnggg time and honestly I'm kinda looking forward to it. I'm not even going to bring my running stuff so I have no temptation because I know if I have my stuff I'm going to feel guilty about not using it. Even as I'm writing this though I'm actually thinking "well maybe just shoes... and an outfit... just in case" lol. I really think a week off would be good for me though!!
So, normally I run around 6-7 miles on Tuesday and thursday, and 10+ miles on Saturday or some 3 days of the week. Her recommendation was the cut out tuesday and thursday and then only do 6 miles on saturday and then jump back into my normal routine the next week. I wanted to ask your guys' advice on if that seemed good. I'm pretty stoked about taking a break!
Oh and lastly, I ran FIFTEEN miles yesterday! The longest run since my injury and I felt absolutely marvelous!
