Happy Sunday! I hope the past week has been fabulous. The past three days have been spent with the team during our annual women’s team trip. I officially hit 60 miles for the first time, got to see almost my entire team, didn’t have to work too much, and the Olympics began. It was a pretty good week 🙂
Summer 2016 week 11 (8/1-8/7):
Monday: AM: 3 miles, sleep deprived but felt good, upper body strength. PM: 7 miles, drills, strides. Total = 10
Tuesday: 20 min w/u, fartlek (1:00-1-2-4-8-4-2-1-1 with half-time recovery) around the Mall/Tidal Basin, 15 min c/d. Felt pretty tired but got through it and the views were AMAZING. Total = 10
Wednesday: 5 miles easy
Thursday: AM: 7 miles, drills, strides, upper body strength. New shoes. PM: 3 miles. Total = 10
Friday: 20 min w/u, drills, 24 min pace run/tempo on canal with team, 20 min c/d, core. Felt really strong and controlled, no idea about pace but mentally one of my best tempos. LOVE being with the team!! Total = 9
Saturday: 12 miles canal, felt good, pretty relaxed. Hike later.
Sunday: AM: yoga class with team. PM: 4 miles neighborhoods at home. Legs felt surprisingly good!
Total: 60 miles + hike
There were a few bumps in the road- what else do you expect when you throw together twenty 18-to-22-year-olds that haven’t seen each other all summer- but for the most part, the trip was incredible. Also needless to say, the house we were staying in did not smell great towards the end. I don’t think I’ve ever sweat more in my life. Less than two weeks until we’re back for good!
