Weekend + Training 1.8 – 1.14

Hello! I hope you are having a great weekend.

My weekend looked like this:

Meet Zoe!

After an early swim workout and trail run on Saturday morning, I headed to a puppy adoption event here in Denver and left with this beauty. I squeezed in Church last night and my workout today but besides that, the rest of the weekend has revolved around Zoe. She is a lot of work but I am in love. 

On the training front, this week went well. I had a few little niggles that prevented me from finishing my run workout on Thursday but besides that, I am happy with how the week went. My biggest struggle with training and racing is the mental side and my negative thoughts seemed especially prominent this week. Getting the work done is easy, believing in myself is hard. I can push through pain but self-doubt isn’t as easy for me to work through. I am constantly questioning whether or not I am doing enough. One of my big goals going into Oceanside 70.3 is to go into the race with confidence. I am still working on how I plan of changing my mindset but if you have any tips, please share!

THURSDAY 1.11

  • AM: planned 1 hour treadmill workout; actual: 15 minutes on treadmill –> 45 minutes on elliptical. I had been dealing with a few little niggles this week and while I probably could have pushed through the hour run, being on the hard surface of the treadmill and super tight muscles was making for a pretty miserable run. I pulled the plug at 15 minutes when I didn’t feel any better and spent the rest of the hour trying to work up a sweat on the elliptical.
