This week was an interesting one workout-wise. It started out great and then went downhill Tuesday night with a quick-moving not-so-nice summer virus thing.
While my mileage was certainly down this week, I did spend some time thinking about registering for my next half marathon and I am pretty close to making a decision.
It’s so not easy for me since I plan around my cycle but what can you do, right? I gotta do what works best for me and running at that time of the month just doesn’t work so that’s that.
If I have my choice, I would prefer the Great South Bay Half since it is in October which means the weather should be a little closer to cool with less humidity, and really, the race is sponsored by Entenmann’s which means lots of goodies at the finish line.
I have a feeling the September date may work better for me but as soon as I know and decide, you will be the first people I inform 🙂
Monday – 6 Miles & Pure Barre Mile High DVD
Easy run while chatting on the phone with my friend Heather then home for Pure Barre. Usually I run after Pure Barre but switched it around today so that I could run before it got any hotter outside.
Tuesday- 9 Miles
I woke up to a downpour outside my window which luckily stopped in time for my run. I thought I was about to encounter speed work on the treadmill which would have been fine but I was happy to get outside.
I sort of followed this speed workout which involves .50 speed intervals for a few miles and a full mile speed at the end before cooling down.
Wednesday – Sick Day
Funny how I felt great for Tuesday morning’s run and then went downhill Tuesday night with a virus!
Thursday – 35 Minutes on Elliptical
I felt so much better but knew running was probably too much bouncing around for my insides so easy pedaling on the elliptical while watching the news was perfect.
Friday – 5 Easy Miles & Pure Barre Studio Series DVD
I felt well enough to attempt an easy run. I kept the pace super easy (around 10:15) and definitely felt normal, in fact my legs felt nice and rested.
Saturday – 10 Miles
My parents were on my case to NOT run long this weekend and to give myself a break but come on, what runner who feels fine is going to stay home?!
My father followed up with me bright and early by text.
Sunday – I think a few morning miles
