Hello! I just wrapped up my tenth week of summer training with 12 miles on the bike path.
Summer 2016 week 10 (7/25-7/31):
Monday: AM: 7 miles, SUPER humid so took it easy and felt good, drills, strides, core. PM: 3 miles easy treadmill, felt good.
Tuesday: 20 min w/u, drills, 4 x 6:00 w/ 1:30 recovery, 20ish min c/d. So humid again! Legs were tired/heavy in the second half but overall pretty good workout.
Wednesday: 60 min stationary bike, felt nauseous/crappy. Light strength circuit afterwards.
Thursday: AM: 7 miles, felt eh. PM: 3 miles treadmill, short upper body circuit.
Friday: 2 mi w/u, drills, 24 min tempo on canal, 4 x [:30, :30], 2 mi c/d. Felt tired but decent during the workout…for some reason, the rest of the day I was a zombie! 2+ hours of naps.
Saturday: 3 miles, abs/yoga
Sunday: 12 miles, felt strong in the second half, big negative split.
Additionally, I spent three days dog-sitting for my friend, and her house is really close to both Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s…if I lived there, I would have zero money. But I found the seasonal Siggi’s flavor- strawberry and basil! It was pretty good, but the basil could be more prevalent.
Also played her piano for awhile…
During the month of July alone, I ran over 230 miles (not counting cross training and hiking). I worked over 100 hours. I ate approximately 30 bowls of oatmeal and 30 bowls of ice cream 😉 Took too many power naps to count. “Officially” started dating someone. Read books and played the piano and watched the Olympic Trials. It’s been a pretty good month. And the best part is…five days until I see all my teammates, and just THREE WEEKS until I move back to school!!
