A few things related to my workouts this week before getting to the recap!
— It’s time for a new pair of running shoes. My running shoes have been lasting much longer than usual since I’ve been running less BUT my Energy Boosts finally feeling worn and I can’t run in worn shoes. Since I do try to rotate my running shoes anyway, I’ve been opting more often for my Saucony Rides (my usual back up pair) until I get my new Boosts.
The Saucony Rides are super comfortable and I can totally run in them for any type of workout or distance but there’s still something I favor with the Energy Boosts. Please don’t ask me what makes the difference for me because at this point, I don’t really know what it is, I just know which pair is my top favorite and which comes in second.
— I’ve been going for more walks lately than usual. I think it has to do with summer and the sun being up early and me waking up early enough to have more time before starting my work day. I’m not looking to run more again (um, no way) but after Pure Barre or even as a cool down after running, time outside for a walk is feeling nice.
— Big heat wave this week! While this week was so weird with the holiday smack in the middle, endless days of heat and humidity only added to it. Finally by yesterday, the weather conditions improved but man, running the rest of the week, even early in the morning was super hot and extremely sticky!
All of my runs were basically the same now that I take a quick glance below. Just a focus on feeling well in the weather with bursts of speed when I could to mix things up.
Monday – 5 Miles
Oh boy, it was hot!
Tuesday – 40 Min Pure Barre/40 Min Walk
After Pure Barre, I felt like taking a walk. I start my workouts earlier in the summer since the sun has me up and about earlier which means more time available before I like to begin my work day.
Wednesday – 5 Miles
It was crazy humid out there today! Even without bright sun, it was so hot!
Thursday – 5 Miles/1 Mile Walk
I ran a little earlier than I have been which may have helped to alleviate the heat/humidity issue as of late. It was slightly better than yesterday I think! Of course I thought about going with the treadmill but I really wasn’t in the mood.
Once I hit 5 miles, I decided to walk about a mile or so as a cool down.
Friday – 45 Min Pure Barre
Rainy morning so no walk today!
Saturday – 7 Miles
It was beautiful out this morning! After some storms yesterday, the hot and sticky air went away leaving the temps in the low 60’s with no humidity! About a mile walk to cool down.
Sunday – Pure Barre/Maybe a walkNeed new running shoes plus workouts from the week on the blog! #running #run #workouts #Adidas #saucony #workoutrecap #fitfluential Click To Tweet
