National Running Day and National Donut Day in one week? Best. Week. Ever.
— RunningEB (@runningeb) June 2, 2015Tuesday: After feeling good through 3 weeks of base building, I started to add in just a little speed work.
Planned: 5 miles Actual: 5 miles (8:48/mile)
Wednesday: Yet another year when I didn't run on National Running Day. I think I get good credit for the rest of the year. The Monster was unbelievably sick resulting in an emergency trip to the vet and attempts to clean dog vomit off the living carpet which was also filled with moving boxes (there's a good visual for you). It was like the Exorcist, but her head never spun around. It was a stressful and scary day, but thanks to modern medicine, she has been revived to her old self.
Planned: 8 miles Actual: None
Thursday: I was still a bit tired from Monster's health fiasco, so I had no bounce during this run. I headed down to Lullwater Park and explored some new (to me) trails.
Planned: 5 miles Actual:5.75 miles (9:19/mile)
Saturday: I met up with some friends down at Piedmont Park to get in some fun (and warm) miles. Summer has definitely arrived.
Planned: 10 miles Actual: 10.25
Random runner photobomb.Sunday: Met up with a different group for some recovery miles. I didn't wear my garmin, but the pace was nice and easy.
Planned: 6 miles Actual: 5.75 miles
Monday: We started to officially move, so of course you move the most important things first.
Planned: Rest Actual: Rest
Planned: 6 miles Actual: 5 miles (9:02/mile)
Note: A box of bling is actually really heavy. #strengthtrainingWednesday: All the packing and moving started to take it's toll. I just didn't have a lot of energy to give.
Planned: 8 miles Actual: 4 miles (9:01/mile)
Trying to do yoga in a packing zone is challenging.Thursday: Stayed late at work preparing for the move there. I love tape guns.
Planned: 5 miles Actual: Rest
Friday: I knew I wasn't getting in any of my Saturday miles, so I got in a quick run to at least shake my legs out.
Planned: Rest Actual: 3.5 (8:59/mile)
Saturday: Moving Day! And as luck would have it, the first 90+ day of the summer. It was hot, it was humid, but we got it done and are happy as could be.
Planned: 16 miles Actual: Rest
Just a dog and her yard.Sunday: I was surprised how much the move took out of me. I woke up exhausted and decided scratching my run wasn't the worst thing ever. We went out for donuts instead.
Planned: 6 miles Actual: Rest
How was your week? Do you find moving exhausting?
