Feeling good about being back in my running routine. My mileage is low, and I’m slowly increasing it.
I don’t start my training cycle for my next half marathon until the the middle of this month. I have a few shorter distance races on the horizon, and I will start incorporating a little speed work here and there, but frankly… I’m running to have fun!
I am trying to remember to wear my Jawbone Up24 to help motivate me to get 10k steps. That requires a lot more moving! My dogs are loving the extra attention that brings since they get to go with me for evening walks.
Here is how my week shook out:
Sunday – Easy 5 miles (average pace 11:24). As per usual, I got a late start… it is really heating up, but I think I am becoming acclimated to the heat. I took walking water breaks at each mile. Total steps 18,453.
Monday – 3.25 miles easy (average pace 10:32) with the Gooses Acre Running Club… they run earlier in the evening than I usually do, it was steamy. Total steps 12,850.
Tuesday – Rest. My evening dog walk got rained out. Total steps 5,491.
Wednesday – 4 miles easy (average pace 10:37). Total steps 59 – I left my tracker at home, never put it back on after my shower in the morning – ha.
Thursday – Easy 3 miles with Anam. (average pace 11:19)
Friday – Rest. 5,491 total steps.
Saturday – Rest… sort of, 6 hours driving time logged – dropped the hubs out at the hunting lease. Forgot the Up at home, I would have to say steps were less than 200.
Total miles = 15
