Tuesday: For today's run I decide on a progressive 5k workout (increasing speed with each kilometer). I did this one on the treadmill starting at 6.6 and upped the pace at each k. When I got home, I got in some cross training with both foam rolling and vacuuming (not at the same time). I even got in a second round of vacuuming when I accidentally dumped the dust trap thing on the floor.
Actual: 3.1 miles (8:52/mile); foam rolling; vacuuming repeats
Wednesday: If you saw my Wednesday post, you know that training is about to ramp back up in a big way. I finally took the plunge and signed up to run the Snakebite 50k again this year. After hearing it was the last year of the race, there was no way I was missing it. I'm really excited about it with a healthy dose of respect for the work ahead.
Actual: 3.1 miles (9:11/mile)
Thursday: Drove to South Carolina after work, so I didn't get in a run but I did see a stunning sunset.
I feel relaxed just looking at the photo.Friday: In South Carolina for the weekend to visit some family vacationing from New England. I always love getting in some miles on the coast not only because it's a nice break from the hills, but it's so beautiful. We had a pretty active weekend with lots of bike riding and beach walking. I even got in some squats while strawberry picking (totally counts).
Actual: 4.25 miles (8:44/mile pace); 30 minute bike ride
Getting in my squats while getting a healthy snack. Win-win.
Saturday: I joined the Jayhawk on his long run on bike. It was like a scene out of Rocky (kidding, I yell more than his trainer). It was fun to chat with him and make sure he kept the pace light. He finished up with the last half a mile or so on the beach. We also went for two more bike rides that day.
Actual: 2.5 hours of biking
Sunday: One last bike ride before heading back to the city.
Actual: 1 hour biking
