This week I got back in my routine of running (for the most part). My mileage is low, and I’m ok with that. The heat is in full swing in Houston and I’m trying to get myself acclimated to it again. I am continuing to wear my Jawbone Up24 in the hopes that it motivates me to get 10k steps in, especially on the non-running days. I’ve found when I’m good, I’m good… then the bad days happen.
I signed up for 2 races in the upcoming months. The Baytown Bud Heat Wave 5 Mile (doesn’t the name just make you want to cringe?)… it is on the 4th of July. I also signed up for the Southern Star Brewing Co. 5k… it is on August 6.
Here is how my week shook out:
Sunday – Easy 6 miles (average pace 11:54). I managed to take a tumble within the first mile, and I learned my favorite trail is closed for repairs due to storm damage… had a good run anyway! Total steps 18,453.
Monday – Rest. Total steps 3,514.
Tuesday – Easy 3 miler with Anam (average pace 11:25). Total steps 12,852.
Wednesday – Rest. Took both dogs for a walk after dinner. Total steps 11,234.
Thursday – Easy 3 miler with Anam (average pace 11:21). Took Sorcha for a walk after the run. Total steps 13.140.
Friday – Rest. Total steps 5,285
Saturday – Not a thing. Can you say hangover… the hubs wanted martinis on Friday night, I really wished we had stopped at one. Did not wear the tracker… even though we went to Academy and Gander Mountain, I can’t imagine my steps were much.
Total miles = 12
