Week one was pretty uneventful overall. I was able to wake up and get all my runs done in the morning. Even the dreaded treadmill run. There was even one day when it was only 80 degrees at 5:00am. Maybe we are going to get a cold front.
Saturday was my treadmill run of the week. This was my tempo run, which I have to do on the treadmill because I just can't get the pace I need in the heat and humidity outside right now. It wasn't a bad run, and I felt pretty good at my race pace.
On Sunday I did my long run, which was only 8 miles this week. It was hot and humid for this one. Wow, what a shocker. Luckily two of my running friends joined me for the run, which is always a nice distraction. We took it slow, but got it done. And I got to get my first have to pee in the woods out of the way, which was nice. I really need to stop drinking coffee before I head out.
Here are the totals for the week
Total Distance: 24:05 Miles
Total Time: 5:03 Hours
Total Workouts: 6 (Only 1 strength training session this week)
Total Treadmill runs: 1
And the song that got me through on the treadmill this week is Tik Tok by Ke$sha. Just because it is fun.
Happy Training :)
