Monday: Switched Monday and Tuesday's workouts due to date night. Felt pretty much back to normal! :)
Planned: Rest Actual: 5 miles (8:46/mile pace)
Tuesday: The Jayhawk and I went to the Fox Theater (old, iconic theater in downtown Atlanta) to see Beck. It was awesome.
Planned: 6 miles Actual: Rest
Inside the Fox theater.Wednesday: Took the day off to take care of some stuff and tried to get in my 20 miler for the week. Went out to Stone Mountain for a change of pace to get in a hilly (2900 feet of gain) long run. Only made it 15 mile before the humidity won. Even my hydration pack was soaked in sweat.
Planned: 8 miles Actual: 15 miles (9:16/miles pace)
Guess who learned how to use the self-timer on her phone (hint: this girl)Thursday: Wasn't feeling any ill effects after Wednesday's long run/sweatfest.
It was a pretty morning out by the rock.
Planned: 5 miles Actual: 4 miles (8:46/mile pace)
Friday: Rest and rolling!
Planned: Rest Actual: Rest
Saturday: It was hot and the run felt like a suffer fest. It just wasn't fun and it felt a bit defeating.
Planned: 20 miles Actual: 5.15 miles (8:34/mile pace)
Sunday: Focused on having fun regardless of the number of miles. Explored new parts of Lullwater Park and still felt like I could finish strong. Still kept it hilly with ~1800 feet of climbing. Win-Win.
Planned: 8 miles Actual: 10.15 miles (9:18/mile pace)
Interesting article in the NY Times this week about How our arms help us run. Curious who the 13 experienced adult runners in Boulder might be. :)
If you ever wondered what makes the ultrarunning community different, this article sums it up pretty well.
How was your week? Any races or fun runs?
