Well, I lost the 2 lbs I gained during my week of funk. No net loss, but I'll take it! However, I was too lazy to pull out the tape measure and take measurements. I think all of you will find a way to live without the excitement of my hip and chest measurements...some how.
Several bloggers are doing this thing called the Weekly Chase.
Basically, each week the bloggers participating post at least one goal that they want to accomplish for the week. It's another way to stay motivated, be accountable, and feel accomplished. I like the idea, so I'm adding it to my training updates as a motivator.
Goals for this week:
Goal #1: Get strength training in at least 2x. My trainer is on vacation this week, but I don't want to use that as an excuse to ignore strength training.
Goal #2: Pick up my bike from the shop and go for a ride! I haven't ridden my bike all summer!
Goal #3: Get a Rainier workout in. I've skipped these for the past two weeks, time to suck it up.
How'd this week go? After my strength training session on Monday night, and the run on Tuesday morning, I developed a really strange left quad issue. It felt like it was misfiring, and really freaked me out. I took a bonus rest day on Wednesday, scratching my planned 4 mile run, to let it work itself out. It was still not completely normal on Thursday, so we ran our 5 miles easy, and I took Friday off as originally planned. I'm happy to report that it felt normal by Friday afternoon and didn't reappear during either my Saturday long run or the Sunday 5K race! (And it still feels normal today!)

You can never have too many (training buddies or medals)!
Random Author's note: This didn't get posted last night, because I had a girls night with my non-running friends (yes, we're all allowed a quota of non-running friends, it's in the rules, I checked). We had a great time even if my one margarita got me a little tipsy! The alarm for my early run this morning was not my favorite sound as a result.
How was your training week?
Are you going to join the chase?
How many margaritas would it take to make you a little tipsy?
