Weekly Rundown

This week has been quite a week!  There have been some running highs and then some moments that left me feeling beaten up.  weeklyrundownlogoMonday -at start: 88 degrees and 46% humidity

I met up with Amy in the evening to get in a few miles.  She had some speed work to do so I just went to be out there with her.  We ran a one mile warm-up then she went on to do her 800’s.  I was feeling really good and was picking up pace for the next .5 mile in and started tagging along with her for the rest of them.   We absolutely rocked those 800’s I ran mine as a progression and started at 8:00 pace for the first one and ended up with 7:24 for the last one.  We walked in between for each recovery.  We finished up with a cool down.  4.35 miles @10:18 pacemonday817

Tuesday -at start: 81 degrees and 70% humidity

I met Christine, Kay and crew to get in some miles.   We had a decent run and felt pretty good despite how it felt out there.  We finished 4 miles @10:57 pace

Wednesday – at start: 84 degrees and 66% humidity

Cara, Christine and I met up to run in the evening.  We ran a route we haven’t run in a while and ended up with a really great run!  We got in 4.1 miles @ 10:47 pace.  I also got to try out my new HR monitor that is paired with my Garmin.  I’m so excited I don’t have to wear two watches now!  My avg HR was 130, max 147wed819

Thursday – at start: 88 degrees and 52% humidity

This was a two part run.  Christine joined my running/coaching group for a few miles.  We ran and walked with the group for 2.35 miles.  Avg HR 113, max 134.  We were doing 6 minutes running/3 minutes walking x 3.  The ladies were true rockstars!!  Christine and I headed out for another 2 miles together.  Along our run, we saw a huge fox running in a field.  At first we we were in awe, then sort of freaked out.  There had been sightings of a rabid fox near where we were.  We kicked into high gear!  2.01 miles@10:52 pace avg HR 136 max 149 (Funny enough, that’s the fox sprinting)

Friday – at start: 72 degrees in AC

Since I’m back at school that means I get the joy of running a mile in my classroom.  Oh indoor mile at school, how I’ve missed you?!  1 mile at 12:00 pace

Saturday – at start: 66 degrees and 94% humidity

This was the best weather we’ve had all week!!  Even though the humidity was high, we didn’t feel it.  There was a slight cool breeze.  We had a route in mind, but then ended up just wandering around for the whole 10 miles.  We had the best run!!  10 miles@11:05 pace avg HR 128, max HR 145sat822

Sunday – at start: 72 degrees and 69% humidity

What a difference a day makes!  I felt like utter crap for this whole run.  I was drenched within the first mile and was thankful that I had decided to wear my water belt.  We always know that the second long run can be tricky.  We had a few good miles in the 11, but for most of them, we just kind of felt sluggish.  Also, we ran a super hilly route for our second day.  Yesterday’s total feet gain, 295…this run? 505!? 11 miles @ 11:19 pace avg HR 130, max HR 147 sun823

Meals

I’m not even going to pretend that we felt like cooking all week.  I knew it would be tricky with me headed back to work for us to feel like cooking after some long days.  We did so great!!  I was really proud of us for sticking to our cooking plan.

  • Chipotle Glazed Pork with roasted broccoli and mashed potatoes
  • Lemony Shrimp Fettucine
  • Seared Steak with chipotle cream sauce and potato and corn hash
  • Penne Arrabiata with Italian Sausage from a local restaurant
