Weekly Workouts – Last Week Today – August 21

fontover_201671013354641-1.jpgHad a hit and miss week this week. I’m now in my 6th week training for the Houston Half.  This was supposed be a 5 day of running week… but that didn’t happen.

This week I dodged thunderstorms!  Houston had a cool streak this day… 5 straight days with temps under 90!  The driving factor for those cool temps were storms, which started on Saturday evening and continued throughout the week.  Thankfully, nothing like Louisiana got last week… my heart goes out to those folks.

Sunday I was hoping to catch a run along the seawall in Galveston, but I woke up to a lovely thunderstorm… with lots of lightening, so I passed on that one.

Here’s how my week shook out:

Sunday – Rest.

Monday – 10k – I got my Dog Days virtual run done.  I had 6 miles on the schedule from Sunday.

Tuesday – Planned 12×400; Actual – Rest (thanks to a thunderstorm at run time).

Wednesday – Planned 3 mile easy, Planned 12×400; Actual – Rest (thanks to a thunderstorm at run time).

Thursday – Planned 4x1mi; Actual 12×400. My splits were all over the place – 9:04/9:02/8:35/9:02/9:18/9:02/9:34/9:13/9:17/9:17/9:28/8:51, according to plan they were to be between 9:40-9:50 pace.

Friday – Planned Rest; Actual 3 mile easy effort with Anam.


Saturday – Planned 5 miles easy; Actual Rest. The hubs woke me up at 5:00 because the dogs stunk.  We figured out that Anam had been sprayed by a skunk. I spent the whole morning bathing her, 3 times. Finally got the stink out with Natures Miracle Skunk Odor Remover. Bathed Sorcha too, just in case…

Total miles = 14.5
