I have to say that there is nothing more nourishing than the love of family. I am so fortunate to be very close to my family. Lately I've been running on empty. There are moments that I feel happy and at peace ... When I run, at my home and with the company of my friends ... but lately other things have been robbing me of my serenity. Thankfully I was able to see my girls, my sister and my beautiful niece and nephew. There is no medicine so perfect, so fulling than the love of family. Being with my daughters and my family was just what the doctor order. Fueling my soul ... Bringing happiness to my life.
Week 1 -
Training Plan Miles: 28
Training Miles Done: 12. Tomorrow there are miles to be run. I don't think there will be too many miles done as my sister is in charge of my NYC weekend, and the agenda seems quite full.
Hill Repeat: Fail. It was my first hill repeat. It was hard and my hill was half the distance I had to run.
My Week: Hard. Since Sunday I have been at work with meetings from 7:30 until 6:30. Entertaining and dinner. Home by 10ish each day. It was very tiring.
My thoughts: I'm stressed and it shows in my running. Especially now that I have a set goal/plan in mind. I still have my monthly goal, but since there is flexibility in how I reach the mileage goal, that never seems stressful. This however is a true training plan and here I do feel the stress when not completing the miles assigned.
I am going to end far from the goal mileage for the week. I'm trying to concentrate on the week ahead, but being in New York with my sister won't help. Late nights and a planned agenda are not the perfect combination.
... a dopo ... J
