This is the week of almost no morning runs…not my idea of a great week, but the runs still happened! The afternoon winds kicked my bum mid week, but I made it through 🙂 My first 1/2 marathon of the year was built into my Saturday long run – a long run ending with a medal and snacks, yes, please!
Monday- The snooze button and sink full of dishes kept me home this morning – even though the weather was ABSOLUTELY perfect for running! I cleaned up the house and packed my lunch running bag – nothing like some easy trail miles to start the week off right!
Tuesday- Well, no alarms, no morning run. While I could have scrambled to meet my friend, I just let her go on time…
Instead, I spend my lunch hour running my missed morning interval workout. I cut back the “recovery run” from 15 minutes to 5 minutes due to my limited time…rather that than one of the intervals – which I took the last one quite a bit slower anyway…so maybe I really did get more recovery at the end 🙂 Either way, it is done!
Wednesday- What is the deal with my mornings this week!? No alarms could get me out of bed…I think I am going to have to start moving my phone away from my bed again…with the LOUD alarm far enough away that I HAVE TO get out of bed to get to it before waking the entire house…THAT should kick this daylight savings slump…
Anywho…easy lunch run. Check!
Thursday- Darn morning routine this week!! I am not sure what needs to give to make my morning runs happen this week… At least I got out of bed around 5:30 this morning – but then I cleaned, did laundry, folded laundry, dishes…you name it, I did it.
One thing I also accomplished this morning, I packed my lunch run bag… Another interval workout in the books!
Friday- YES!! I finally beat the snooze button this morning! Yeah…I may have used it once, but I was able to get past the tired, “I don’t WANT to get out of bed” thing because I was proactive last night. I text my running buddy and said “Run?” She said yes…and our date was set! I wasn’t about to let her down since I was the one to start the convo 🙂
Saturday- There was a lot of running today!…but not completely as planned. I wanted to run 5 easy before the race, run 8 of the race easy, and then a faster 5 to the finish… All mile done!
Rather, I only ran 1 easy mile before (from the parking lot to the start), I ran the race faster than I anticipated but felt good, and then finished the morning with 6 miles on the treadmill (5 min run, 1 min walk intervals). All in a days work!
Sunday- One mile to keep my streak alive…
Weekly Miles : 51 miles
