It seems to be easier to just combine the two posts, mostly because my mileage isn’t really too noteworthy, and I’ve been slacking on taking pictures for my week in review. If I combine them, it’s a bit more meaty.
I ran 50 miles this week, which is great. I think I definitely could have squeezed out 60 but I was confined to the treadmill and just didn’t feel like being on that thing for that much time. Plus, I run so much slower now so really I’m probably running for as long as I used to run when I was running 60-70 miles/week while only running 50 now. Make sense?
Monday– I’m 37 weeks now, so let’s take care of business. Seven miles on the treadmill.
Tuesday– I picked up the pace a bit for this one. 8 miles on the treadmill at an 8:30 min/mile pace with the last mile at an 8 min/mile pace. It felt good!
Wednesday– 6 miles at 9:40 min miles with the last mile divided up into quarters of 9:13, 8:30, 8, and 7:30 pace for 7 miles total.
Thursday– Another early morning 7 treadmill miler at about a 9 min/mile pace.
Friday– I did an interval workout on the treadmill for 8 miles total, with the fastest at a 7:30 min/mile pace.
Saturday– Well… I didn’t run first thing in the morning and I didn’t run on the treadmill, and those two decisions were bad ones. I barely ran and I contracted nonstop the entire time in the middle of a trail in the middle of nowhere. NEVER doing that again.
Sunday– Oh man, that was a slogfest although much better (and safer) than yesterday’s run! I stuck to the treadmill for 5 miles and then ran the last 2 outside. I’m probably going to run/walk some more today but not enough to really document.
Alright, so as far as the week went in other areas of life besides running, it was pretty decent. Katie was at camp, Freddy stayed at his friend Gabe’s for a couple of nights and I was able to finally get some sleep at night with the help of Gravol. It’s an anti-nausea medication that the doctor and nurses told me to take to help with the constant (useless) contractions. It worked, but it made me feel really groggy during the day. On a positive note, I was forced to lay low and just take it easy which is probably what my body needs right now.
I don’t really venture too far from home, but we did go into Fort Langley one day and it was so cool because the trains that Callum loves to climb on were actually open to the public! So we toured those bad boys while Freddy and I sipped our coffees. Callum and Freddy are best buds right now. I love it.
We picked Katie up from camp on Friday (Freddy came with me for the drive up) but by the time we got home, Callum was asleep so he didn’t get to see Katie until Saturday morning. But boy, oh boy did he ever make up for lost time. He didn’t let Katie out of his sight! I stuck a video on my Instagram story of Katie holding Callum in the rocking chair, and he’s sprawled across Katie’s lap, clinging to her for dear life. It made my heart melt. The two of them pretty much spent the entire day latched onto each other like koala bears. Well, Callum did, and Katie was nice about it. She’s amazing like that.
Here’s a random throwback picture of Jake holding Harley, my favourite cat in the whole entire world. Jason bought him for me on my 16th birthday. I miss Harley so much. Jake is two-and-a-half here, and he’s turning seventeen next month. WHAAAAAT?!?
