Week in Workouts (June 29-July 5)
Tuesday: 6 miles
Wednesday: 5 miles ... at like 9pm - woof
Thursday: 7 miles (5 @ 7:10-7:24 pace) felt freaking fantastic
Saturday: 16 miles (1st 8 miles @ 8:29, 2nd 8 miles @ 8:12 pace)
Sunday: 5 miles
Total: 39 miles
Once again, I completely failed at fitting in yoga and spin. I need to start adding it to my Mondays and Fridays but this past week I overbooked myself with social stuff (every.single.day.) and by Sunday I wanted to do nothing and see no one. #SecretlyAnIntrovert
I saw this on the Instagram and thought "yessss" - totally me.
But sometimes my post-long-run eats aren't all that exciting.
Green smoothie + eggs = the perfect protein and carb combo.
I ran my 16 miles on Coronado Island which was insanely festive and patriotic. Everyone was already lined up for the parade when I got there and the energy was off the charts for such an early hour.
I ran the first 8 miles of my long run with a co-worker and it made the miles fly by. The second half was solo and much faster because the wind was finally working in my favor. I felt strong the entire run and wasn't even fatigued by mile 16. Hungry? Yes. But fatigued? Not so much.
Brittany and I spent the Fourth with her family, some BBQ, hot tub action, apple pie and ping pong madness. It was the perfect 4th of July - which happens to be my favorite holiday.
Sunday was all about rest and eventually watching the USWNT win the WORLD CUP which pumped me up enough to make it out for a 5 mile run... eventually.
How'd you celebrate the 4th of July? Did anyone race?
