Week 2 TNFECSDC Training Recap

Posted on

Week 2 – I’m way behind on posting this because things fell apart in Week 2.  Literally, some things fell apart.  The pieces are slowly being picked up and I’m moving on though.

What went right – well I started off with two 2 mile runs on Monday and Tuesday.  And then I got back out on Thursday for my 4 mile run.  This was my first increase mileage weekday run and it went ok.

Wednesday night was really really really bad and I needed that run on Thursday to help clear my head for a bit.

After that …well the sky opened up and snow came down and things got wild.  The storm started here on Friday afternoon and it stopped sometime while I was sleeping Saturday night/Sunday morning.

We measured 29 inches on our deck which is absolutely insane for us.

This was before it stopped.

I was supposed to run 10 on Saturday and then 6 on Sunday.  I went into the weekend thinking I would find a way to make this happen.  I came out of the weekend without this happening.  I was surprisingly ok with that.  I shoveled enough – cross training if you will.  I was on my feet for more hours than it would take to run 16 miles.  I was out of breath and working plenty hard.  We have a huge driveway shared with two other houses.  By the time I was finished shoveling for the weekend we had a path for everyone to get out and had helped a couple of neighbors clear the end of their driveways where the plow had put snow.  Luckily we are on a snow emergency route and we were getting plowed throughout the entire storm.

Trying to shovel on Saturday before the storm was finished.

So the week did not go as planned but I’m not at all concerned about the missed training.
