It was 60 degrees when I woke up this morning!
Anyway, happy Sunday! I was planning on sleeping in, but my body always has other plans…so a 5:45 am wake-up it was. After writing for awhile, I made some waffles and went to the farmer’s market.
Week 10 (7/24-7/30):
Monday: AM: drills, 7 miles with friends on sidewalks/bike path, strides, difficult core circuit! Legs felt fresh thanks to off day yesterday. PM: Kayaked on the Potomac with some friends. Ultimately decided not to double. Definitely thought about that decision way too much! Ugh.
Tuesday: AM: pre-early-workout ate toast with almond butter and banana. 2 mile warm-up, drills, 30 minute tempo, 26 minute cool down (that was an accident- I ran too far down the canal during the tempo haha). Tempo felt strong- it was long, but I was not dead at the end! Nuun and Picky bar between workout and lift. Lift day 1. Ice bath. Worked 12-5 pm. Quite tired after, but solid morning! Abs are sore
Wednesday: AM: 3 miles. Sore from lift! Nice weather. Worked 12-5. PM: 30 min swim. Was very enjoyable 🙂
Thursday: AM: drills, 7 miles, strides on turf (finally did strides somewhere besides the asphalt!!), ate an energy bite between run and lift, lift day 2. Lift went well! PRed on farmer’s holds. PM: 2 miles, humid/hot but felt good. Worked 5-10 pm.
Friday: pre-workout ate toast with almond butter and banana. 2 mile warm-up on bike path, drills, 6 x [4:00h, 2:00e], 2 mile cool down. Went well! I was mentally strong. Ice bath. Solo road trip.
Saturday: 13ish miles (100 minutes) on trails/bike path. Personal distance record! This was a pretty awesome run! I felt like I could have gone faster and farther. Ice bath.
Sunday: 30 min swim
Total: 51 miles + 60 minutes swimming
