Week 17, 2010 training totals


All I can say is “WOW, what a week!”.  Two weeks of less running due to the vacation followed by stress from a lost job really kicked my butt this past week causing my nutrition to suffer, weight to drop, poor sleep (late to bed and late to rise), and hydration to suffer.  Add it all together and you end up with very bad runs, and a very poor mental state that simply beat me into the ground followed by severe stomping.  For anything to interfere with my running IS…NOT…ACCEPTABLE!  Yes, I was down but I am far from out.  Check back for week 18 and my recovery.  I am determined to pull myself together and fight back.

    Did you lose your job, Adam???? Ugh, I’m soooo sorry if so. Dealing with that here in my house for the past…oh…3 years on and off. You need a little downtime to regroup – you will!!

    Yes! How is the job hunt going? A running focus will keep you grounded!

    Oh no about the job!

    I agree, nothing should come inbetween a person and their workout! I would lose it without my gym time, that is for sure!

    Hi Adam,
    I am so sorry to hear about your job loss. Hang in there and keep positive:) When God closes a door he opens a window. Good luck to you!

    You know, 27 miles is NOTHING to sneeze at. In fact, I’m just barely going to clear that this week!!

    too bad about the old job, but congrats on the new position!

    Hey, Adam
    Weeks like that happen to everyne.. if they run long enough. There’s nothing you can do but go with the flow- and keep a great attitude!

    That’s the long way of saying keep on doing exactly what you’re doing:)
