PT Monday was a cardio circuit session as the group fitness room as available due to the public holiday & fairly hard! Managed to smash my little toe on the coffee table Monday night - oops. There was blood. Was a little difficult getting my shoe on Tuesday morning. How bloody embarrassing would it have been to have to pull out of an event due to a broken toe due to lack of co-ordination!!!
Thankfully it settled down & was able to run without pain on Wednesday morning. I banned myself from walking around in bare feet for the rest of the week & decided Friday's run should be on the treadmill - less danger of injury plus softer on my legs LOL!!!
Thursday nights PT session was light in terms of weights but intense as far as cardio goes with some boxing & nible foot work on a "ladder" on the floor of the gym. Loved it. Mike made me cool down significantly on completion - left to my own devices I tend to overdo it. Mike growls at me about only having two speeds. Flat out & stop. I'm generally not good at cool downs.
Friday's run was on the tready - had a nice sleep in then went to gym. Easy on the legs & less opportunity to trip over or anything!!!
Have felt anxious on & off most of the week - not sure if it is due to the impending 1/2 marathon or the marathon training that will follow!!! Yes, I am a bit of a goose I know. Not much more I can do now. I have done the training. I've run the distance 4 times now (once before the first half, the event & twice before this event) so I KNOW I can make it. Just need to keep calm. I have no idea how many people will be running & how congested the course will be & of course the weather. Both of which may effect my time.
Yesterday & today have been better & I've slept well. I'll sign off now. Wish me luck. I'll put something up on FB on the day & will post something here as soon as I can.
