So, I’m pretty sure the great state of Iowa has skipped spring completely and dove right into summer temperatures…
My runs (however few they were) happened, but they weren’t super great. With the sudden crazy-hot temperatures, my water intake isn’t up to snuff, so I will need to recalibrate how much I should drink and I’m hoping to see improvement when I start going back to the gallon-per-day.
This past week…
Monday – ~12 mile bike ride. It was pretty hot out, so I was happy I was on my bike and not running that day.
Tuesday – Vinyasa Yoga (It’s showing up on Wednesday…shucks)
Wednesday – Rest
Thursday – 4.05 miles. This.was.miserable. Hot + dehydrated + dead legs = slow, painful run. But, hey, 4 miles is 4 miles, am I right?
Friday – Rest – I hosted a baby shower!
Saturday – 4.11 miles. This went better. But, I also ran in the morning before it was 90 degrees and humid. Good call.
Sunday – 5.14 miles. This is the longest I’ve gone since the marathon. I’m feeling pretty good about it. In the third mile, there was massive headwind the.entire.time. For the rest of the run. Oh well. I’m slowly building up my Sunday long runs in order to see if I should register for the Brewers Mini-Marathon in Milwaukee at the end of September.
Plans for next week:
Monday – Easy run or bike.
Tuesday – Hot Vinyasa
Wednesday – Easy run or rest
Thursday – Easy run
Friday – Rest
Saturday – Easy Run
Sunday – Easy run
The main goal for next week is to get my weekly mileage above 15 miles. After riding the 13-14 mile weeks for the past two weeks, I’m feeling pretty good about this. 🙂
How was your training this past week?
