Kept up my running routine, and feeling great. I can’t believe training for the Houston Half starts next week! This summer is flying by!
I remembered to wear my Jawbone Up24 a few times this week. I have determined that I can easily get in 10k steps if I walk both dogs at night. The girls are loving the extra attention that brings since they get to go with me for evening walks. I don’t take them out on runs as much in the summer time because I think it is just too hot for them… sometimes it feels too hot for me, but at least I don’t have on a fur coat!
Here is how my week shook out:
Sunday – Rest day… I declared Sunday a “pajama day”! I hadn’t had one in so long, so I enjoyed it. Read (War Brides), watched tv (Mr. Selfridge), and a couple of movies (Hot Pursuit and Everest).
Monday – Baytown Bud Heatwave – 5 miles – 50:34. I wasn’t really sure what time goal to focus on, so I just ran based on effort. I was pleased with my time, especially since I took a couple walking water breaks. It was HOT… 84 degrees at the 7am start… but there was a nice breeze. Had a great time! Look for recap later this week.
Tuesday – Easy 4 miles (average pace 11:36)
Wednesday – Rest + dog walk x 2
Thursday – Easy 3 miles (average pace 11:52) with Anam. She seemed to struggle a bit, I think this is the last run she is going on until it cools down.
Friday – Rest.
Saturday – 4 miles (average pace 10:48). I managed to get up and out the door by 7:30… a huge accomplishment for me! It made the run a lot more pleasurable than if I would have waited.
Total miles = 16
