I have overcome much bigger obstacles. For instance, peanut is out of our bed! Woohoo! And he's doing really well with the transition. He wakes up 2-3 times at night for a feeding, but he almost always eats and goes right back to sleep. Of course, some nights are worse than others but for the most part the transition from co-sleeping to solo-sleeping has been much easier than mrp and I feared. So, yeah for that!
Anyway, I've been terrible about reporting my training. Here's the last two weeks:
6/29 - 7/5
M 8 easy no watch by myself from home to the park
T 8.5 easy with peanut and Evie on the towpath!
W am 9.5 miles including 4 miles tempo (6:37. 6:36, 6:32, 6:23) + 4 x :45 hard strides; pm 4 easy with peanut.
R 8 no watch with peanut
F 6 easy with E
Sa 7.5 including 5k at 18:49
Su 16.5 Ran mostly on trails but mixed in roads and a paved path. Pushed the last couple of miles home.
M 8 very easy with peanut. Ran first half with my cousin who's training for her first marathon.
T am 4 easy; pm 11 including 6 x 1000 (3:53, 3:53, 3:53, 3:52, 3:52, 3:49) + 6 x 100 (all 18)
W very very very slow 4 on trails with peanut. Did a little experiment running with the BOB on trails. Kind of fun, but not something I will do regularly.
R 8 with Evie and peanut
F am 9 including 4 mile tempo (6:34, 6:37, 6:34, 6:30) + 4 x :45 hard; pm 4 easy with peanut
Sa 8 easy
Su 18 around 8:00 pace. Ran from home to the park and around the trails. Discovered a 5 mile race was about to start in the park so ran around and then jumped in around the 1.5 mile point of the race and my 12 mile point. Ran with the racers for a while to get a good "marathon paced" push in: 6:57, 6:52, 6:46.
