Well, I made it through another (hot, humid) week of training. Barely. This past week was a bit unusual because I spent the beginning of the week in WV with K, celebrating our anniversary. We had a delightful time (and I’ll share more later) but it’s always nice to get back to home and routine. You can see my racing plan for the rest of the year here, but in October I’m already signed up for the Wineglass Marathon on October 4, the Army Ten Miler on October 11 and the Marine Corps Marathon on October 25.
Monday: 1 Run Streak mile
Tuesday: 1 Run Streak mile
Wednesday: A terrible attempt at a tempo run. It was hot, my legs were dead and it was just awful. I was supposed to run 2 easy, 2 at 9:06 and then cool down with 2 easy. I ran 2 easy, 2 at 9:26 and .5 for a cool down home. It sucked. But sometimes it’s just not your day.
Thursday: 1 Run Streak mile
Friday: 1 mile on the treadmill (ugh) and Pure Barre
Saturday: Fit Foodie 5k. I’ll have a full recap later this week, but this was a really humid (like 95% humidity) race. I didn’t PR, but ran a solid 28:03, with my last mile my fastest mile.
Sunday: Made up for missing my Saturday long run on Sunday. 10 ridiculously humid miles (noticing a pattern here?).
Total: 22 miles + Pure Barre
This week I’m hoping for lower humidity and fresher legs. On that note, off to foam roll!
Tell me about your training last week!
