This week had more flip-flopping of workouts, but for good reason. In addition to Saturday's big
Monday: No ill effects after Sunday's long run. I made sure to stretch and get in some light living room yoga as well.
Planned: Rest Actual: Rest
Tuesday: I ran and it was good.
Planned: 6 miles Actual: 5 miles (9:03/mile)
Wednesday: As my training has increased, I've tried to be more vigilant about my recovery. I came across this article on active recovery from Outside this week, and it was the pep talk I needed to get more serious about it. I've been getting better about doing many of the tips they discuss (I even foam rolled and did light yoga before work this morning), but I really need to focus on consistency now!
Planned: 8 miles Actual: 8 miles (8:52/mile)
Rocked my DONNA shirt in honor of Ambassador applications opening up!Thursday: Headed down after work to get our expo on. After a little confusion when we wondered into a huge convention taking over most of the building (AA International's 80th birthday), we sucessfully obtained bibs! I'm not a huge expo person, but I'm always game for a silly photo or two.
Planned: 5 miles Actual: Rest
Of course I made the Jayhawk take all the silly photos (against his will).Friday: In early June I saw the announcement for this year's Peachtree Road Rage, and signed up as fast as my little fingers could type. I had wanted to do the inaugural race in 2014, but work got in my way (as always). Taking place the day before that big ol' one you might have heard of, the Peachtree Road Rage is limited to 49 participants and celebrates running through the city in motion because "why not race and rage Atlanta as it is, warts and all". I will write a separate full recap in order to fully capture it's glory.
Planned: Rest Actual: 6.2 miles (8:13/mile)
Planned: 6.2 miles Actual: 6.2 miles (9:28/mile)
Soaked, standing in a swamp, but still smiling. And the Jayhawk totally cropped out my awesome socks.Sunday: When I built my training plan, I knew this was one of the runs that was likely to not happen as planned. As fun as PTRR is, it's also a logistical nightmare getting everyone to the start and finish. It usually requires an early depature from the house, lots of standing at the startline, and an extensive walk back to the train because it's point to point. We just walked the 2 miles back to the car. Anyways, I've got big trail mileage on the books next weekend, so a somewhat smaller mileage weekend wasn't the worst idea that I've had. I ran without a garmin to try and keep the pace light.
Planned: 16 miles Actual: 5.25 miles (9:31/mile)
Just keeping the peach theme going.How was your week? Did you do anything special for the 4th?
