Last week turned out pretty well as far as my running goes. I am having a hard time deciding on what plan to follow for my fall/winter marathons and I realized one of them started last week, so I just kind of went with that and will decide this week which I actually want to use.
My great week of running consisted of:
Monday - 3 miles + barre
Tuesday - 2.5 miles in 96 degree heat - 80s night with Lifetime Run! + barre
Wednesday - rest
Thursday - 3.1 miles outside
Friday - barre
Saturday - rest
Sunday - Too Hot To Handle 15k (Race Recap later this week) + barre
That's right...as much as I love the treadmill, there was NO treadmill running again this week. I am almost thinking I might do my *really* long runs outside again. It was really run running around White Rock Lake again and I forgot what a nice oasis in the middle of the city it is.
So this week (potentially week two of marathon training) will consist of:
3 easy runs during the week + 9 miles this weekend
This week and last week have been so busy...my class taking up a HUGE part of my time. I've really had to rearrange priorities. Louis spent this past weekend back with his dad and while thinking it was a "free" weekend, it was far from it. 15+ hours of "awake" time were spent on a professional paper on asthma, something I thought would be "easy" since asthma is basically a huge part of my job. Notsomuch. The amount of detail and frustration were found in equal parts. While I would have loved to run and go to barre on Saturday, I chose rest and academics instead.
This week, family comes first. Louis is here for the entire week - YAY! - and we are trying to nail down a venue for our destination wedding. With so many good choices, we finally made a decision, I think?
So that's the weekly chase! Happy running!
