Monday: 4 miles on the treadmill. Felt a little tightness in my foot after Saturday's cool run (I got a little excited and finished strong). Did extra stretching and foot rolling with the Monster's toy and felt much improved by morning.
Tuesday: Cross training and strength training. Including, but not limited to, bike riding, squats, lunges, hip strengthening, and arms.
Wednesday: 6 miles strong on the treadmill. Stretched well afterward and had no linger foot issues.
Thursday: 4 miles. I felt sluggish and the gym was kind of hot, so I called it at 4.
Friday: Rest Day. Attended (and excelled at really) an ice cream social. Those kids had nothing on me.
What is that? Is that the...sun?Saturday: 16 miles. I hadn't run this long since my last marathon. Got a little worried when a black cat crossed the road in front of me during mile 1 and then the sun came out. Good news is that I never felt like I was on the struggling bus, but I never felt like I was killing it either. Just kept marching along. I tried out a new route with some good climbs (5000ft of elevation change). Did not excel at fueling and for the last 2 miles my thoughts revolved entirely around food (juice and popsicles) to the point where I almost texted the Jayhawk to see if he would pick some up.
Morning 16 miler and afternoon at the pool. Perfect Saturday.Sunday: 1.5 mile recovery walk with my Monster. She likes to earn Charity Miles for the ASPCA.
Summer in Atlanta is ruff.Next week: Busy running week! Thank heavens for the 3 day weekend.
How was your week?
