Weekly Workouts – Last Week Today – August 28

fontover_201671013354641-1.jpgHad a great week of running this week. The is my 7th week of training for the Houston Half. My plan has had a 5th running day for the past couple of weeks… it is generally a 3 mile slow run. I have to admit, I haven’t ran the extra day since it has been introduced.  My body just has needed rest, and I’m ok with it.

We are back in the pattern of pop-up storms in Houston, it is keeping the temperature down, but boy… the humidity sure makes it steamy.

I am not enjoying the fact that it gets darker so much earlier.  In the middle of the summer I was going out at 7:30 and getting back at dusk, but now it seems I’m going out at 6:30 and getting back after dark (my safety office is not thrilled).

Here’s how my week shook out:

Sunday – 13 miles LSD.  I had 12 on my plan, but between faulty running math and enjoying the run I got in an extra mile.

Monday – Rest.

Tuesday – 6 miles easy effort + strides (average pace 11:41). This one felt hard… it super soupy out and my legs were not feeling so great.

Wednesday – Rest.  I had 3 miles easy on my plan, but my body was exhausted.  I opted for foam rolling and rest.

Thursday – 6 miles with 4 miles fast – fast we supposed to be between 10:45-11:40 (fast splits 10:15/10:36/10:31/10:15)

Friday – Rest.

Saturday – 6 miles easy effort (average pace 11:04)

Total miles = 31.5
