This week was a tough week as it was ridiculously hot and humid. I began most of the runs before 6 am and they still ended up feeling like a death march. I am not used to running long distances multiple days in a row (but it is part of the marathon training plan I’m following), and honestly this week hurt- a lot!! It’s tough to run when you feel like you can’t breathe- evil humidity!
I made sure to bring water and Gatorade with me on every run (except for Tuesday) just to be safe. I made it through some tough runs and am definitely stronger because of them!
Monday: 75 min whole body lift
Tuesday: Run 4 mi (34 min, 8:21 pace)
Wednesday: Run 7.5 mi (58 min, 7:47 pace); yoga class
Thursday: 30 min spin; 60 min lift
Friday: Run 6 mi (51 min, 8:28 pace)
Saturday: Run 9.4 (78 min, 8:25 pace)
Sunday: Run 12.2 mi (102 min, 8:25 pace) *Birthday run! J
Total miles: 39.27
Quote of the Week
Me: (in a whiny voice) This run’s going to hurt—a lot.
Hubs: (serious) Do you know what also hurts? …. A marathon!
Snarky, but true! It was definitely the motivation I needed to get my bum in gear and out the door for Sunday’s long run!
