Dopey Training Preview - Week #29

I've been wondering how I'm going to do at the Disneyland Half Marathon which is just a month away. I know I can finish, I doubt that I'll PR on this one...I had really hoped to do well at this one, but my dedication and training just havent' been at the level they should have been to get to that point. Regardless, I am going to do the race, do my best and have fun doing it. In the meantime, I really need to increase my mileage as July was a bit pathetic and I know I can do better.
I feel like I need to get back to basics with Pilates and stretching - my muscles seem tight and I need to remedy that. I think if I can get back on track with these I'll be doing a lot better. I also need to work harder at the weight loss to help ease the aches in my joints - I know carrying the extra weight is not helping me.
This week is not going to be good. I'm traveling and have very limited options and while I'll do what I can, I am not making any promises on this front.
AM: Easy Run - Warm up walk, 2mi @ 14:25 per mi, cool down walk
AM: Bike - 15mi no target
AM: Tempo Run - Warm up walk, 1mi warm up run no target, 5mi @ 13:12 per mi, 1mi cool down run no target, cool down walk
AM: Walk - 4mi no target
AM: Bike - 30mi no target
AM: Long Run - Warm up walk, 14mi @ 14:49 per mi, cool down walk
REST or Walk - 3mi no target

That's a wrap for this week. Be on the lookout for the Dopey Training Review post at the end of the week!

Do what you can on the foot front, remember to drink alot of water, that usually helps me get through meetings and whatnot...that and decaf coffee. Have to get up alot, but I'm not as hungry. :-)

I think getting back to basics is a good thing. If the food is the issue, try to concentrate on that and even cut down on the workouts if that's taking away the focus. I found I needed to have one under control prior to moveing to the next. The other thing that hurt me was "counting" my workouts for more than they were worth. Sure a 5 mile run feels like I should be able to eat a towering burger and fries, but in reality it's more like a turkey sandwich with cheese and a small bag of Doritos! LOL

Keep focused! I know you'll get there if you take it one step at a time (pardon the pun).
