I’m linking up with Erin for Weekend Recap, Tara for Weekend Update, and Katie for Marvelous Monday to recap everything that was marvelous last month. I can’t believe it’s August already. I am looking forward to two fabulous trips to Nantucket this month, but I figured I should take a moment to look back at how my July running was.
Also, let’s just take a moment to appreciate that in 5 short days I will have my butt permanently parked on a beach chair. Things I’m most certainly not sad about.
187.2 miles, 8’04” average pace
It took me a while to find my groove with running again. I didn’t have too many workouts in July, but rather just trying to get back in the groove on falling into a training schedule. Although I never felt like I lost consistency in my running, feeling the “pressure” of having workouts on the schedule was definitely something that I needed to adjust to again.
7/27 – 8/2 Workout Recap:
Monday AM Run: 7.67 miles, 7’42” average pace
Tuesday AM Run: 5.35 miles, 8’12” average pace
*Had planned to run a tempo run at run club in the afternoon, but totally wussed out due to heat and humidity (officially when I decided I needed to stop complaining about said heat and humidity)
Wednesday AM Run: 8.01 miles, 8’04” average pace
Thursday AM Run: 5.53 miles, easy 8’18” average pace
Friday: Day off. Walked 4.5 miles after work. Good to get my legs moving and rest before long run Saturday.
Saturday AM Run: 14.25 miles, 8’02” average pace. Finally a long run that I didn’t sweat my body weight out during.
Sunday PM Run: 5.26 miles, 8’04” average pace. Ran home mid-day after spending the morning at the beach with my parents.
Total Miles: 46 running, 11 miles walked
Average Pace: 8’04”
I am hoping to incorporate more strength training/cross training this week, as well as hitting my Tuesday night run club run and hopefully another hill workout. I’m traveling to Nantucket Saturday so that will most likely be my rest day/short shake out run, with my long run having to be pushed until Sunday.
How was your week of workouts?
What’s your favorite way to stay active while on vacation? I’ll be doing lots of early morning runs!
