Monday- I’m not starting off the week all that great…went to bed on time, but I was restless and couldn’t stay asleep… I wanted to go to the gym this morning because the weather was going to be funny and I “enjoy” my interval workouts on the treadmill.
Oh well…at least I was able to get out for a mile over my lunch break!
Tuesday- I needed several alarms and a not-so-perky hubs to get me out of bed this morning. “Go run…” is what he grunted at me (…probably since I went to bed “early” the night before so I could ATTEMPT to get out for a run before work). Success!! While I wish that I would have just ran outside, the interval workouts are WAY “easier” when on a treadmill…for me.
Wednesday- This week is just not my week – I was successful getting out of bed yesterday, but the snooze almost won the morning today! I was able to get out for a quick, wet mile… While my training plan isn’t quite on track this week, I will be okay!
Thursday- Since this week has been a mess and still raining, I decided to get up
on time early and get out to the gym! I knew I wanted to get in 8-10 easy miles before the weekend…long, easy runs are my favorite and I was able to catch up with some Netflix as well 🙂
Friday- I feel like a successful human when I wake up close to on time and am able to get out for a great run before the sun comes up!
Saturday- There’s nothing like a pending thunderstorm to put a damper on a long run…
I woke up a little late, which didn’t help. I checked the weather report around 4:20am and the storm would be within 30 miles around 5:30am…so I decided to head out for a few miles.
As I was running, I realized that since the gym opens at 7am, I could then go to the gym to get another 5-6 miles before the hubs needs to be up and getting ready for work…so I headed to the gym!
Sunday- I didn’t feel like getting wet this morning, so I waited for the slightly warmer afternoon temps to get out and run. With the focus on my HR, I kept the uphills slow slow, and was still able to hit a 9:30 downhill with an average of 133 HR! Low and slow…
Weekly Miles : 48 miles
691 / 2,017 miles in 2017
Next Week’s Projected Workouts
Next week might be a mixed bag… Since I didn’t get as many miles throughout the past week as a whole, this doesn’t mean that I am going to try and “catch up” this week.
I have a busy weekend ahead! I will be pacing the Rock The Parkway with the Smart Pacing team with the 2:40 group – and then after a quick shower and change, a group of us crazies are loading up and on the road to STL for the GO! St. Louis Marathon (half marathon for me…). Busy weekend…so excited!
Will I be seeing you at either event?? Shout it out!!
