Week in Review (4/30-5/6)

First off I want to share this poem I found last night when I was unable to sleep:

Challenges of Life

Author: Unknown
Smooth roads never make good drivers 
Smooth seas never make good sailors 
Clear Skies never makes good Pilots. 
Problem and hassle free Life never makes a strong person 
Be Strong enough to accept the challenges of Life 
Don't ask Life, "Why Me? . Instead say "Try Me!"
Very rarely do I have those "Why Me?" moments, I usually look at difficult situations as a way to grow, learn and become a better person. However, I did have several "Why Me?"s this week. Today I'm sad about how life played out on life's terms this time.
On another note, the beginning of the week was pretty much a wash for me. After my oral surgery last Friday, I thought I'd get back to running Tues. The doctor told me a week. I made 5 days. Wed and Thurs were slow and blah runs. Still training by heartrate, so that saved me from pushing too hard too soon. I could tell by Wed and Thurs runs I was barely ready to start running, but 5 days seemed too long to go without running, especially when you're training for 100miles. Then I was back to normal for Sat and Suns longer runs. Did the longest back to back 20miles on Sat, 14miles on Sun, with over 7000ft of elevation gain with the 2 runs combined. I have to say, I felt great, like "SuperRunner". Worked on the hip area of the IT band this morning after yoga before running and no pain today during the run, YIPPEE!!! Need to keep on top of that.
Miles: 45            Runs: 4              Yoga Classes: 2
