It’s the last week of summer “training”! Whoo!!
An easy going day to start the week off right – starting with a run and good eats all day! Since I was out of town all weekend, the fridge was not prepped for the week and I was left scrambling for whatever I could in the morning! Oh well, a quick trip to the store in the evening should fix that for the week!
Well…the heat came back this week… The mornings were in the 70-80s with high humidity…so I pushed workouts to my lunch breaks and evenings. I sure do not miss this heat…BRING THE FALL COOL!! Oh well…Mother Nature has a mind of her own (…esp in Kansas)! Ha!

This week was one for the record books, for sure! It has been quite a while since I have logged so many double workout days…and I am feeling great, and wanting more! The weather has been wonderful and caused me to want to take additional lunch runs…and I started adding more cross training and yoga… Continue reading marathon training w5
