I’m finally in no training, just running mode! I’m pacing Race 13.1 in a few weeks, but other than that, it’s all 5 and 10K’s for me. This has been an enjoyable running week and I hit a super duper big milestone on Thursday.
Monday – 1 mile “rest” day
Tuesday – 4.03 miles with the girls. The air was super thick and a few of us had a really tough time breathing. It was a struggle during some parts of that run.
Wednesday – 2.25 miles along the Reedy Creek Trail in Raleigh. There is this awesome bridge that goes across the highway. Every time we drive under it when we head to Raleigh, I always want to stop and run on it. Well, I finally got the chance! Cindy and I headed there after our Fellow Flower interview. After we crossed the bridge, I had a City of Oaks flashback when I realized that we were right by the “Steep Grade Climb” at mile 23 of the full.
Thursday – Today was my 730th day of my running streak. I have run at least a mile for 2 years! Holy Moly! I ran a early mile in the morning, not wanting to jinx it. They were calling for rain and storms in the afternoon and I was super fearful that I wouldn’t get a run in later. Cara, Christine and I met to run and we got in 1.23 miles. (1 for year one, 2 for year 2, and 3 for moving towards year 3)…past, present and future! We spent the rest of the evening shopping. It was a perfect way to celebrate!
Friday – This was the day runners dream about! The rain had pushed through and the air was cool and the sun shining, but not too hot. I had to run! I ran 4.07 miles around my neighborhood. I’m back on the HR training and I kept my HR under 145. Avg HR 129
Saturday – I headed out for a run before Christine and I head to Charlotte for our two day concert!! I got in 7 miles. I ran with Nathan and we had a really good run. Avg HR 130
Sunday – Christine and I got up a bit early so that we could get a run in before our second day of the Carolina Rebellion. Unfortunately, there wasn’t sidewalks for long so we made loops on a side street. We got 1.5 miles in and called it a day!
Total Miles: 22.08
Year to Date: 480.8
Monday – Pea and Asparagus Gnocci
Tuesday – Dinner out with the girls
Wednesday – Hummus wrap with tomatoes and cucumbers
Thursday – Salmon with citrus quinoa and an arugula salad
