|This week's sky shot from Friday. Ominous!|
Happy Tuesday! I'm running behind this week, but still linking up with Hoho Runs and MissSippiPiddlin for another weekly review. Read more about my fall goal race & training plan here.
Week of June 27-July 3
Monday: rest + walk to work (w2w)
Tuesday: rest + w2w
Wednesday: 4.7 mi speed work + w2w
Thursday: 3.2 mi + w2w
Friday: 2 mi
Saturday: 5 mi
Sunday: Worthington Hills Firecracker 5k [recap]
Weekly Total: 18 miles
2016 Total: 508.22 miles
Milestones this week
- First 5-day week (and my legs were feeling it by Sunday!)
- First hill workout of the cycle.
- I crossed 500 miles for 2016! For reference, I ran 550 miles in 2014 and 800 in 2015, so crossing 500 halfway through 2016 is pretty cool. Especially since June was (and will be) my lowest milage month (48.6 miles).
I hurt my finger on the fall, so I put it in a splint Wednesday thru Thursday and wore it to a group run at the running store closest to my house. I wasn't wild about the group three weeks ago, but I gave it another shot and enjoyed it this time. We went way faster than I wanted to, but it was also a mile less than my plan (which called for an easy 4), so I didn't feel bad going faster. It was a special run, too, and I got a free t-shirt and beer after! No beer next week, but at least I know I like the group enough to go back.
Friday was a before-work solo run and like a total goober I didn't consult the forecast and got caught in a complete downpour at mile 1.5. I was going to keep running, but a few tenths later lightning started so I ran home. I saw another runner and we gave each other the "what are we doing? just kidding, this is great" look. You know that look, right?
|Post 3rd of July 5k|
We ran the Worthington Hills Firecracker 5k on Sunday [recap]. The rest of our holiday weekend consisted of napping, running, laundry, eating, watching the track and field trials, and catching up on Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, and John Oliver. Lazy weekend!
Did you watch any of the Olympic Track & Field Trials? (The women's 800 final was brutal!)
How'd you spend your holiday weekend?
