Road trips make me tired

As I write this at 8:45pm on sunday night I am very very tired. I had a road trip to Fairbanks this weekend for my son's state wrestling tournament. I really enjoyed watching him wrestle and have to admit that the tanana junior high state tournament is really cool. Probably the best Junior high athletic event in the state!

The trip wasn't the best for my training though. I had to drive through a snow storm on the way up to fairbanks, so it was almost 7 hrs. of driving. Standing and sitting in the bleachers for 2 days kind of hurt my feet and made my legs tired. I was still able to get my runs in, but I felt tired. I also didn't get much sleep because we had to be up early in the mornings and the tournament was over late each night.

I really have to focus and start taking better care of myself. I need to start working my core more, stretching after workouts, sleeping, eating healthy. Only 8 weeks until Boston!

Here is a recap of the week 2/16- 2/22: It was also a recovery week, so mileage a little lower.

2/16- 10 miles (6am/4pm)
2/17- 9 miles
2/18- 10 miles (5 X 800m @ 5K pace w/90 sec. rest)
2/19- 7 miles
2/20- 11 miles
2/21- 8 miles (10 X 100m strides)
2/22- 16 miles

Total: 71 miles
