Catching up

Sunday and Monday off

Tuesday- did 7k to the mirador in the predawn(5:15 a.m.) without a watch so untimed,felt bad because I had stomach problems and the legs did not respond.

Wednesday- off

Thursday- Did 7k to the mirador in 39:37, the legs did not respond and Danilo pulled away from me early, did it in the predawn.

Friday- off, had an exam and did not have the motivation of the focus to wake up and run.

It seems that when I have a lot of things going on in my life(work, exams in college) I totally lose the focus on running and should not be that way, I have to change it and work hard but at the same time train hard as well!! Hope to get consistent again soon!

Nice dawn run

Today I woke up at 6:30 a.m., and was out at 7 a.m., did 7k to the mirador in 37:04, felt good, nothing compared to the late morning runs, the weather was fine. The guys are running fast so I do better start training hard again.

7k total, 37:04.

Back again

Had not run since sunday so 5 days off. I have been inconsistent due to the low motivation.

Today at 10:15 a.m. I did 5.5k to the conservatory( 3 laps there) without a watch, did not feel that good after the 2nd lap, low energy level, but very happy to be back running, it felt great. The biggest reason that I have not been running as much is that I am focusing on others things such as college, and have not had the motivation to wake up to run.

5.5k total, untimed without a watch.

I am healed?

Rest the last 5 days due to low motivation and to let the leg recover.

Wednesday- 6.5k to the conservatory watchless, low energy level after the first lap. Around 10:20 a.m.

Thursday- 39:01 for 7k to the mirador in the predawn, around 5:20 a.m.

Friday - 7.5k in the conservatory , low energy level after the first couple of laps, watchless, around 10:30 a.m.

Saturday - 5.5k watchless to the conservatory felt like a million of bucks and the weather was great. At 10:40 a.m.

Sunday(today) 6.5k to the conservatory watchless and with low energy level at the halfway. Around 10:40 am. have been lazy to wake up early but I am running in the morning, however at 10 a.m., my energy level tend to drop very much.

Now to the title of the post, none of these days the shin splints bothered me, it seems that I am healed and the 5 days rest really helped, we will see what happens in the next week.

Runs this week:5 runs

Kilometraje semanal: 33 kms , very low but testing the leg and it seems that it is healed, great news!

Catching up

my lack of blogging has been due to the fact that I dont have a computer recently and I have to borrow my girlfriend's computer.

Saturday 25/06: rest , the leg hurted very much.

Sunday - 26/06, 9k in the dawn to the conservatory and the gomez route, 50:45, I dont know if its more than 9k but its something like that. This afternoon hispaniola half marathon.

Monday- 27/06- rest

Tuesday 28/06- woke up very early and at 5.15 a.m. did 8k to the mirador in 44:08, the leg felt fine.

Wednesday 29/06, Same as yesterday , but with my father in 46:03.

Thrusday 30/06 Took the day off, because of lack of motivation. Also the past 3 days could not get to classes because I had a job training.

Friday 1/07-In the late morning went out to the conservatory to do 8.5k, ended doing 6k or a bit more, did one lap and then did a lap to the maximo gomez till the conservatory entry and back to my house in 32:52, finished tired.

Saturday 2/07 and sunday 3/07 are off days, yesterday no water to take a shower and today did not have the motivation to go out. That happens when you dont have races to train for.

My training is going not very good but the leg has been bothering me and the extra recovery serves well, but the low motivation is playing a role here also, I ll try to get back my consistent.
