I keep needing to remind myself that it’s actually September now. This is always such a weird month because it sounds like it should be fall but it’s still pretty hot out. September is going to be another busy month so I have a feeling this one will fly by too, and soon enough I will be complaining about the cold weather!
Overall this was a really good week of workouts. I didn’t go into the week with much of a plan but ended up following the same schedule that I’ve been following most other weeks. While I skipped yoga once again (my iPad kept crashing) I did do some stretching after all my runs so that should count for something, right?
Monday: 5 miles + mobility
The usual 5 miles on a Monday morning and the heat and humidity returned after a cooler weekend.
Tuesday: Strength Training + 3 Miles
Nothing significant to report about this workout!
Wednesday: 6 mile Fartlek run
This was week 3 of the same fartlek workout:
1 mile warm up
2,3,4,5,4,3,2 minutes hard with 2 minutes recovery after each
cool down to 6 miles
I like this workout because it’s challenging but not too hard, and goes by quickly! I managed to run faster than the past 2 weeks even though it was hotter/more humid.
Thursday: Strength Training + 3 miles
My treadmill was being weird at one point and when I tried to change the speed to 6.0 the incline would change to 3%. I guess it’s a sign I should be running more hills!
Friday: 3 miles
I was planning to do yoga but my iPad kept crashing. It’s 7 years old so I can’t complain too much. I like to keep it in my basement for workouts and I didn’t feel like going upstairs to get my laptop after 10 minutes of fighting with my iPad. So instead I just did some extra stretching.
Saturday: 13.1 Miles
Not sure how I ended up running this long, because I really only set out for 10 miles. I was feeling good and just went with it.
After 33 miles this week I needed a lazy rest day! I did get outside for a short walk with Rob.
