It feels like the humidity just won’t quit around here. Even on the days that are slightly cooler, the humidity is still there. It’s the second week in October and I haven’t even worn a long-sleeved shirt yet once for a run! Why does it always feel like the seasons linger when we are ready for the next one? I’m sure if next April/May are cold I’m going to be wishing for warm weather. It also makes me worried that we are going to totally skip fall and head right into winter.
Monday: 7 miles + Mobility
A dark and sweaty start to the week! I could feel that my legs needed a break from running after this run plus 10 and 5 mile runs over the weekend.
Tuesday: Strength Training
I didn’t run and just focused on strength training and foam rolling/stretching.
Wednesday: 7 miles
For the past few months I’ve been doing fartlek runs on Wednesdays, but I wasn’t up for it this week. I decided to keep the pace easy but included some hills in my run.
Thursday: Strength Training + 5 miles
I started out with my strength training workout and then headed out for 5 miles. Even though the temperatures were a bit cooler I still felt like I was swimming during this run.
Friday: 8 miles
I decided to get in a longer run on Friday so I wouldn’t have to worry about it over the weekend when I had family in town. 8 miles takes me much longer these days than it used to, so it was all I could get done before work.
Saturday: 6 miles
I headed out in the fog planning to do 5 miles, but there was construction on my route and I took a different turn. I ended up running 6 miles and was super sweaty by the end thanks to (you guessed it) humidity.
I definitely needed a rest day after a busy week and weekend!
Baby Shower Weekend
This weekend was also our baby shower. Rob’s family (his parents, sister, and her family) stayed with us. We had a small shower at a restaurant nearby with close family and then everyone came back to our house after. It was a great day and Baby Selby got lots of great gifts!
Next up is getting the nursery painted and furniture delivered so we can start to get ourselves organized. 11 weeks to go!
