I've been insanely busy during July, so kicking off Week 1 of training has been rough, but I got it done! Here's how it went...
Monday: 3 miles (easy)-Easing back into early morning runs, kept around 9:50min/mile.
Tuesday: 60 min walk-Was going to be a rest day but I wanted to get out and moving so I took a long walk through the park.
Wednesday: 3.5 miles (easy with 5x 30-sec pickups)-Ugh. So hot and humid, pace was SLOW even with the pickups.
Friday: 3.25 miles (easy)-Easy pace doesn't feel so easy! It is so hot. Is it fall yet? How am I ever going to run 26.2 miles?
Saturday: Rest-I've been working a lot and definitely needed to sleep in and not run today!
Sunday: Queens 10K-Abby had a 6-mile long run scheduled, so I figured why not sign up for this race, get another 9+1 credit, hydration along the course and awesome T-shirt? I didn't race and stayed within my LR pace...Check out my recap here.
Total weekly mileage: 15.5 miles
I definitely should have fit in some strength/cross training this week, but I just didn't make the time with my hectic schedule...and I really needed to take my rest days when I could. Stay tuned as my training becomes more intense and things get really fun!
Are you training for a fall race? Tell me how your training is going! Are you getting beat by this heat?!
