This was my first week back at running, so let's take a look at how the week went! (I forgot to take pictures this week, so I apologize for a text-heavy post. Pretty pics of Pittsburgh will be back next week!)
3 milesI'm back! I decided to take a week off running after my half marathon. Even though I didn't feel like I raced and didn't have any soreness at all, I thought it was a good idea to take a little break. I definitely think it helped, because I felt really excited to run again my legs felt really refreshed!
4 milesAlternated 5 minutes slow/5 minutes slightly faster. Not full blown "speed"work but enough to get some energy in my legs!
YogaI had a lunch meeting on Tuesday so I had to skip my normal weekly yoga class. Instead, I decided to do a video at home. I never do as well on my own, so this wasn't a great workout to be honest.
4 milesI took the bus to work, which means that I didn't have any time to run in the morning. Instead, I ran after work when it was super hot! Apparently the cool days are over and the summer heat is back (for now). WAH.
4 milesI should be sharing a race recap for Run Around the Square, but I woke up and just wasn't in the mood to drive across the city and run a race in the heat. Instead, I ran an easy four miles around my neighborhood and checked out the opening of Nordstrom Rack with my mom and sister! Much better.
6 milesI woke up nice and early to go running before it got hot out (or stormy judging by the forecast) and it was a great run! I was trying out a new pair of running shoes since the ones I wore during Seawheeze somehow got a rip on the inside, and so far I'm loving them!
