Monday: I've talked a bit about the Yeti Trail Runners group that I occassionally run with (they put on the Snakebite, many of them are involved in Troop Trot, etc). Last week Jason (head Yeti) was on Ultrarunner podcast talking about the Yeti races, his approach to running, and racing Western States this month. It's a great listen and will give you more insight into why I enjoy their events so much (yes, beer is discussed).
Planned: Rest Actual: Yoga
Tuesday: Hot, Hot, Hot. I took my first spin around the new neighborhood after work and I came home looking like a tomato. It's been in the 90's all week in Atlanta, and it probably wasn't the best way to welcome myself back to running, but it does count for some solid heat training!
Planned: 6 miles Actual: 3.1 miles (8:52/mile)
Wednesday: Back on the treadmill due to a heat and smog advisory. It was still really hot in the gym, but I got it done. I followed it up with strength training (core and hips) and 30 minutes of yoga at home.
Planned: 8 miles Actual: 6 miles (9:09/mile); Core and hips;Yoga
Thursday: Felt more like I was getting back in the grove today. Stayed inside again due to the heat. I've started taking 1 mile walks with the Monster around the hood every morning and I am hoping to build it into a short run in the future (2ish miles).
Planned: 5 miles Actual: 5.25 miles (9:06/mile)

Planned: Rest Actual: Rest
Saturday: Joined the Jayhawk for his long run and we checked out our new stomping grounds. We ran onto Electric Avenue. Then it took us higher (there was a hill). Not going to lie, it was a hot run. I dropped him off after 7+, refilled my bottle, and headed back out to finish my run. I went for the whole half marathon (is that an oxymoron?) to complete my Skirt Sports 13er Virtual race. I may even recap it.
Planned: 12 miles Actual: 7.1 miles (11:07/mile); 6 miles (9:13/mile)
Sing it with me now...Sunday: In addition to celebrating Father's Day, we kept busy with unpacking. All the boxes are gone and it feels good.
Planned: 8 miles Actual: 30 minutes yoga; unpacking (strength training)
How was your week? Did you do anything special for Father's Day?
