Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and are starting your Monday off nice and relaxed!
Since I didn’t recap my workouts over the weekend, I’m linking up with Erin for Weekend Recap, Tara for Weekend Update, and Katie for Marvelous Monday to tell you all about my Marvelous Week of Running. While it was nothing too crazy, I am happy with my build up in milage and am finally to feel like I’m back into a training cycle.
Workout Recap 7/13 – 7/19:
AM Run (7.25 miles, 7’24” pace): Pre-work run. Felt good to move my legs. Ran at a “comfortably aggressive pace”.
AM Run (4.50 miles, 8’38” pace): Easy shakeout run.
PM Run (4.16 miles, 7’33” pace): So. Humid.
30 Minute Plyo Training / Rest Day
AM Run (7.40 miles, 8’15” pace): Easy, relaxed run before work.
AM Run (5.65 miles, 8’03” pace): Easy pre-work run. Hot hot hot.
AM Run (11.3 miles, pace 8’12”): My boyfriend and I got up pretty early in attempts to beat the building humidity and heat to get our run in. Within 10 minutes we were totally down poured on. And then again. And again. It was a brutal run, and a tough course but it felt so good to be done.
AM Run (5.0 miles, pace 7’57”): Easy shake out run.
Total Miles: 45.26. Overall I was happy with the increase in milage, but am hoping to focus a bit more on speed work these next few weeks. I also want to recommit to a bit more stretching/upper body strength training. So we shall see. The heat and humidity is supposed to be absolutely out of control this week so I plan on getting my runs in early before work. Otherwise I know my couch will be FAR too tempting after work. : )
I’ll be back tomorrow to talk about my weekend for Sara’s Tried it Tuesady. I did some pretty fun things and totally conquered (read: started to) my fear of heights…
Stay tuned : )
What was your favorite part of the weekend?
How do you deal with running in the humidity??
