training is coming along (minus the boozy weekend)

this is my training schedule*. the colours mean something. see below the chart for the legend and the next image for the modifications list. rivetting stuff I know. I think the colours make it better.

anywhoo, I have point. my point is that there is a helluva lot of pink on that chart and I think it means I have commitment issues. like I need a coach to make me colour every box blue. this random hash of pink is kinda annoying. I know I can do better. yesterday (week 6 monday) I didn’t do a.n.y.t.h.i.n.g. so this morning I got my lazy ass out of bed at 5:45am as punishment and made myself run 6M as fast as I could. and then tonight I’m doing strength training while watching glee. omg I love glee. and glee is featuring Queen tonight. hearts. then, tomorrow morning I’m getting up and doing the punishment run of 45min moderate (monday’s missed run) and playing soccer tomorrow night and then I’m caught up for the week… albeit with pink modifications all over the place. whatever. I’m getting shit done.

details of this mornings run:

distance: 6M
time: 56mins
pace: 9:15-something
calories: 68o-something
notes: around 4.5 miles I had the sudden realization that I wanted to puke. badly. I refocussed on my breathing and that urge went away. I didn’t eat before my run and I think having some food in the belly might have helped the nausea problem or it might have actually resulted in a puke. not sure. might have to test that one out. I did a negative split on this run. my last 3M were 15-30seconds per mile faster than my first 3 miles. that was pretty cool, especially because it just kinda happened. my left foot plantar facsitis issues weren’t very noticeable either, just a couple of squeaks from it. ran in my green saucs which I think might be too small now. my feet seem to be getting longer! has anyone else noticed this from running?

I’ve got some pictures from the long run up in Sauble Beach from the september long weekend that I need to post but I’m out of lunch time now!
