Doesn’t it seem like the weekends always fly by too fast!? This one was no exception. I have to report to you all that last week I kept my goal of completing all my runs on their designated day and it felt great! I unfortunately did not get any morning runs in nor did I complete all of my strength training workouts…whoops! I will just have to set new goals this week and do better.
Wednesday evening I got a quick 4 miles in and on Thursday I completed a relaxing 6 miles. My runs this week left me feeling strong rather than tired which just shows that I am getting stronger! This week I am up to a 44 mile week so my body knows that peak week and race day are right around the corner.
On Saturday, we had an 18 mile run that went great! I was feeling pretty tired and was muscling through the final miles but keeping a consistent pace helped. The weather was absolutely perfect – mid 60’s with some clouds and a light breeze. I was sweating by the end but it felt comfortable. It still amazes me that I can run 18 miles – that never seemed possible before this year!
After the run on Saturday, I came home to shower before my mom and I headed out for some shopping. I found an amazing leather jacket that I absolutely love and can’t wait to wear all fall! Later that evening, my parents and I went to a local bar/restaurant for a going away party for a dear friend. Sunday was very low-key for me – I cleaned out all of my drawers and donated a bunch of clothes.
Tonight, I am going to get my run in as soon as I am done with work then I’m going to watch my brother and his girlfriend play kickball.
As usual, my workouts for the week are below and I have come up with new goals for this week.
