Had a great week of running this week. I’m in my 2nd week training for the Houston Half. All my runs are at an “easy” effort at this point in the training plan, and I’m taking them easy… incorporating walking water breaks as I need.
I wanted to thank everyone for their support in last week’s post where I felt bad for missing a run on my training schedule. It does take the pressure off a bit, knowing that a skipped run isn’t the end of the world.
Early in the week there was a little break from the oppressive heat as we got pop up showers in the afternoon. It didn’t bring the humidity down any, but it did lower the temperature by at least 10 degrees.
Here is how my week shook out:
Sunday – Rest / Camping
Monday – 4 miles (average pace 10:08) with Gooses Acre Running Club.
Tuesday – 7 miles slow (average pace 10:52). Made up my missed long run from Sunday.
Wednesday – Rest.
Thursday – Easy 5 miles (average pace 10:58).
Friday – Rest.
Saturday – 4 miles easy (average pace 10:42)
Total miles = 20
