Popular running route? Maybe they are afraid of copy cats of this girl.
Monday: 4 miles easy on the treadmill. My ankles and hips were a little tight from Saturday's trail run (nothing bad, just not use to moving like that), so I decided to keep it flat and predictable.
Tuesday: Cross training and weights. 20 min on the bike followed by squats, lunges, leg press and some upper body weights as well. 30 min of vacuuming. With two 9 year olds (1 has paws and a tail) in my house, vacuuming is definitely a form of cardio.
One of the 9yos made me a logo!Wednesday: 5 mile run home from work. It was seriously hot and my route home from work is hilly, so I kept the pace light. When I left work it was 91 (feels like 96) with 51% humidity. When I got home it looked like this:
Outlook not good.I luckily arrived home before the rain even though there was increasing thunder from mile 2 on. Sadly, I forgot my keys at work and my phone died during the run, so I had to wait outside for the Jayhawk to come rescue me.
Thursday: 5 mile tempo run on the treadmill. It was one of those odd days in the gym where I got the last treadmill and then 10 minutes later I was the only one still on one. I decided to take advantage and exceed the time limit. Yes, I am a rebel.
Saturday: 10 miles, LSD. It was hot, but it's hot everywhere, so I won't dwell on it.
Goal of the week: (I've decided to have mini goals each week to keep me on task). Set and share marathon goals.
Race day is in 16 weeks.
How was your week? When is your next big race?
