Disneyland Half Week 5 Training

Monday: 6am wakeup call. 4 mile run.

Tuesday pm: Yogalosophy DVD.
Good butt burn, good ab burn, good sweat. Thought about saving this for Thursday night but realized I probably wouldn't want to do it Thursday either. So I did it. While the beets were roasting.

Thursday: 5:40am wakeup call, 4 miles, 2 tempo @11:59

1 mile jog, 2 miles in 11:45 and 11:39 respectively, walk/jog cool down. This actually felt really good at the end, although totally drenched in sweat. I think I like the quick runs rather than the slow plodding runs. Go figure.

Sunday: 6am wakeup call, 6 mile run
Yeah, that didn't happen. We were out late and had a big dinner with my mom and sister. When the alarm went off, my stomach felt off and I didn't want to risk tummy troubles on our bathroom-less route. Also I was tired. So we went back to bed.

Monday: 5:45am wakeup call, 6 mile run.
Second time is a charm, I guess. I actually am working the 3pm to midnight shift this week so after our early wakeup call, I went back to bed for a couple hours before my late night at work. It was super hot and humid even at 6am, and we dragged through the miles. Remind me why I signed up for a September race?

Meal of the week:

Wednesday we had grilled ribeye steaks, with foil packet veggies (plantains, onions, garlic cloves, limes, and raisins) and sauteed spinach. It was all delicious.

Sunday/someday setup: Erm, I don't know what's gonna happen with the evening shift and the heat. I did find a casserole recipe to make Sunday to eat on console: Baked Pasta with Sausage
This week's workouts are supposed to be:
5 mile run, speedwork (2x1600), and 7 mile long run.  We'll do the long run Sunday. I'm gonna try to get up early again on Thursday to run and go back to bed, but it will be tough on only 5 hours of sleep.
