It’s amazing what early sunrises, warm weather, and the beach can do for my running mood. I’m so much more likely to run longer, more often, and even faster in the summer although I’m hoping that come fall, I still want to run as much as I do during the warmer months. While so many runners find fall to be their favorite summer running season, I’m definitely a summer runner.
I’m in a really good place with averaging four runs a week and upping my average distances for each run fairly often. I also don’t feel any level of soreness, fatigue, or additional hunger which is a plus.
I’ll chat on Wednesday about what I’ve been eating to keep up with increasing my mileage. One thing is for sure, I’m staying hydrated. I love this water bottle from Lululemon.
Also! Melissa Wood Health’s yoga and pilates flows are still so amazing to me! I really enjoy her workouts and her style. If you haven’t tried her platform yet, I definitely recommend the free trial.
Last Week’s Workouts
Monday – 7 Mile Run
I listed today’s run in last week’s workout recap since it was a long holiday weekend. I’m popping it into this week’s recap too just to get back on a regular track.
Tuesday – 19 Min Full Body Flow (1 lb weights) + 45 Min Walk
Wednesday – 4.3 Mile Run
I had to start my work day a little earlier so I had slightly less time to run this morning. I made the four miles count by increasing my effort and then added the .3 as a cool down.
Thursday – 23 Min Super Charged Yoga/Pilates Flow + 45 Min Walk
Friday – 5.25 Mile Run
Today’s run was hot and humid yet it flew by so fast that I had to stop myself from going further!
Saturday – 40 Min Pilates (1 lb weights)
Sunday – 7 Mile Run
I started my run on the boardwalk and quickly saw a 2 Mile Time Clock. Oops, here am I part of a race again! It seemed to be a 5K because only a mile or so later was the finish line. I didn’t cross the finish line but running into these races lately is making me think that maybe I will run one this summer.
