Is anyone else shocked that July is over already? The summer is going way too fast. Which means fall marathons are getting closer. I am starting to formulate a plan- and thank you all so much for your comments and suggestions in Thursday’s post! I have been away from the blog-world since Wednesday due to a conference that took up a lot more time than a regular workday. I had to commute 30 minutes (which is 28 minutes longer than my usual commute) and then rush hour traffic on the way home made for a long and stressful two days. By the time I got home both days I just wanted to do nothing. Except drink wine.
So this weekend I am planning to catch up on the blogs I missed and respond to comments!
Anyway, here’s the weekly recap from last week:
Week of 7/27-8/2:
Sunday 7/27- Rest
Monday 7/28- 5 miles with no garmin, Runner’s core DVD
Tuesday 7/29- 6 miles with middle 4 at tempo pace (garmin was all over the place)
Wednesday 7/30-AM: November Project (which included 3000m run in 12:50 plus run to get there), Runner’s Core DVD PM: 2.16 easy miles (9:16 pace) So let’s just say I ran a total of 4 miles this day
Thursday 7/31- 30 minute elliptical, Body Pump
Friday 8/1- 3.25 easy miles (9:27 pace)
Saturday 8/2- 11 miles (8:51 pace)
This week was all over the place. I started Monday thinking I was injured, but have felt fine since. I ended up not relying on the garmin much but I actually was able to update it and I think its better now! November Project challenged my muscles in a new way and I was sore through Friday- probably from a combination of November Project, Body Pump, and getting some intense ART on Wednesday. But it was a good sore.
I think I am going to start training for the Philadelphia the week of 8/17, which gives me two weeks to keep building my base. However, next Saturday I’ll be running the Charles St 12 and I am thinking about running it hard(ish) to get an idea of where my fitness is right now for longer races. But we will see.
How were your workouts this week?
