Monday: Weights + treadmill 3 @ 9:31 – fast finish
Tuesday: 5 @ 9:28. This was the first progression I’d run in weeks and although I felt sluggish, I was pleased with the finish. 10:14, 9:39, 9:17, 9:10, 8:43. The weather has been more mild lately which obviously helps immensely.
Wednesday: weights + treadmill 4×400 @ 1:51, 1:49, 1:46, 1:43 (2:30 recovery jogs) for a total of 2.5 miles. Really happy with that last 400– much faster than if I’d done it outside.
Thursday: 5 @ 9:48. Fourth running day in a row so I know it’d be slower.
Saturday: OFF – we had Codie’s 3rd birthday party at a park and it was so freaking cute! I mostly keep my kids off the blog these days but I posted a few pics on instagram.
Sunday: 7.8 @ 9:43. I’m just starting to do long(ish) runs again after stopping for a few weeks during 5k training, so my longer runs are a lot slower, but on Sunday the weather cooperated and I was able to pull off a faster finish (well, like 9:15). But my legs felt fresh and strong, like I could have kept going. (After the previous week’s long run my legs were trashed and I was exhausted for the rest of the day.)
Total: 23ish miles
#300milesofsummer update: 68.7 miles so far in June and 20 miles since the *actual* start of summer. I need to up my game if I actually want to make it to 300!
