Monday, I skipped my swim workout as the weather wasn’t that great and I had no desire to drive to the gym so I just skipped it altogether.
Tuesday, I headed out for an easy 42 minute run. Again, supposed to be a recovery week and ran at a 10:00 pace. This was a bit faster than it should have been.
Wednesday was another recovery run, this one was a bit slower where I should have been yesterday. The bad thing about Wednesday, I had a ultrasound done and confirmed that I have an 1.4 cm umbilical hernia. Now I wait until I get an appointment with general surgery. I think I am just going to have the procedure done as soon as possible.
Thursday was a much slower bike ride than I have been doing over the past several weeks and made it a much better recovery day with no major surges or sprints.
Friday was a complete day off and it was much needed.
Saturday, I had a terrible night’s sleep and I ended up starting much later than my normal run and did this run on the TM. I always have a little bit more swelling and pain when I run on the treadmill verses outside, but 10 miles complete varying the incline throughout taking it to an incline of 10 twice for a 1/4 mile each time.
And finally finishing the week off with a 25 minute run, which was optional on the schedule. I figured since I skipped Monday’s workout I didn’t want to skip a second workout for the week.
Next week, I adjusted the schedule slightly to include a bike in place of the swim workout. I am already considering shortening the long run on Saturday since I will be at my son’s house for the weekend. Not sure how I am going to get the two long runs in since it isn’t the safest place to run.
All in all, a good week of running with 20 miles on the schedule.
