It's time for another weekly training recap! Even though summer doesn't officially start until Tuesday, it definitely felt like summertime temperatures this week. I might have to start running before work, because it is toasty in the evenings!
This week I had another race, and joined a gym. Overall it was a great week, and I'm one step closer to race day!
For this run, I just wanted to explore my neighborhood a bit. I went down some new roads and didn't have a course in mind. Once I hit two miles, I just turned around and came back. I didn't run with a watch but I took the run nice and easy.
This was a really hot and humid run! I could feel that it was going to start pouring at any minute (luckily it held off for my run though) so it was a bit of a struggle to get in five miles. In the middle of the run, I did some strides to get some speed into my legs.
Another easy run. I'm going to start incorporating a speed workout during the week starting next week (week 3 of training!). I'm getting a little bored with my same route every day, so I need to change it up and start getting some harder miles in!
Yoga (45 minutes)
I finally joined a new gym! This one is near my work, so I'm going to start going in the morning. On Fridays, there's a yoga class that fits my schedule and I tried it out for the first time this week. It was a really small class (there were only three of us!) but it was such a great workout. I'll definitely be back!
6 miles / 56:36 / 9:26 pace
I woke up early on Saturday morning to meet up with Jennifer and a local running group to do a trail run. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the group so I ended up doing five solo miles. It was such a beautiful day out and I couldn't stop staring at the lake! I kind of wanted to jump in since it was so sunny and humid out. Maybe next time!
3.1 miles / 25:00 / 8:03 pace
2 mile warm up, 1 mile cool down
