Buffalo Creek Training Week 8
Another week down and we're getting closer and closer to race day! I'm not going to lie- these past two weeks have not been great. I think the weather constantly changing (cold and crisp one day and humid and hot the next) is messing with me, and I've been feeling sick and worn down. So- this week I didn't have the best workouts- minus my speed workout!- but, I got it done and we're officially in the taper! Here's a look at my week-
5 miles / 9:39 pace
After work I headed to the park to get in an easy run. The weather was perfect and the entire run felt great!
6 miles / 8:51 pace
Paddle Boarding / 2 hours
It was such a warm day out, so I decided to go SUPing after work. It was gorgeous out!
Paddle Boarding / 1 hour
Selma came along with me! It was so fun and relaxing..she just chilled the entire time.
4 miles / 9:11 pace
I wanted to get in a few miles after work, so I headed around my neighborhood for an easy run.
10 miles / 9:45 pace
This run was not very good. I met up with Maddie early in the morning to get my long run out of the way, and even at 7 in the morning it was warm and humid. I couldn't get into the run at all, and was really warm and sweating the entire time. I did 5 miles with Maddie at a nice and easy pace, then did the next 5 miles at a 9:00 pace. It felt fine at times but my foot started bothering me out of nowhere (probably all in my head since I was struggling anyway), and I ended up stopping at 10 instead of doing 2 miles to cool down.
5 miles / 9:35 pace
