Summary July 25 – 31

I think this week has been the most that I have ever run.  I’m happy with that in itself but I also spent Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights on my feet walking all night long at work. I didn’t track that distance since it was a lot of slow meandering.  I actually looked at the walking as training for staying moving while tired.  And my hours were shifted to almost be a night shift so the fact that I was even able to drag my sorry ass into work early deserves an award.

However I did do something kind of silly: I figured that I would do some weights and that the walking would flush out the lactic acid and I would not have sore legs.  Well that backfired.  Spectacularly.  I was hurting pretty bad and the few times that I did sit down it was extremely hard to get back up.  You would think that I would know better by now.

While I did well in the exercise department, the diet was less than stellar.  I mean it wasn’t horrible…there was most of a plate of nachos consumed Thursday night.  Then a few slices of pizza Friday night.  A porchetta sandwich Saturday night.  And a burrito on Sunday night.  But at least the burrito was fish so that’s lots of protein right?


The continued heat and humidity didn’t help at all and I broke my handheld water bottle on Wednesday (that’s a story with several parts that I’ll post later).
