The week before last week was primarily a rest week, so almost this entire week shows a change from last week. HA. However, the main change over pre-Pig weeks is a slight shift in the running days and the addition of a mid-week easy hike.
I am pretty satisfied with this past weeks training especially since Mark was out of town Monday through Thursday last week. I also paid the remaining balance on my Rainier trip this week, and turned in my registration packet for the climb. Looks like I'm pot committed now!
This coming week I'll be stepping up even more with the strength training while keeping almost everything else pretty constant.
I really intend to focus on fixing my diet over the next few weeks as well. I need to work on my getting my sleep too, the tiny tyrant has her own ideas on THAT aspect.
What is everyone else training for now? Any tips or tricks that work best for you when you are trying to buckle down for a hard training session?
It's hard to believe my next race on the schedule isn't until October! When is your next race?
