MON- I could only manage 1/2 mile on the treadmill and weights. Then off to ZUMBA. I absolutely love doing zumba after running long the day before. It totally loosens up the legs/hips and it's something that isn't running. :-)
TUES- Track workout day. 4 x 800 at 7:20 pace. Did this at "my" track, near my house. It's an old cinder track by a lake. Totally reminds me of Jr. High- since our track was cinders. I decided to run after work- wow! it was really hot...(but less mommy guilt about leaving later) I was thinking that I might try for another 800 and about puked after one lap so decided against finishing that one.
WEDS- Crazy soccer night at our house. I took Buster to his first practice at 5:30-6:30, hubby took Cub to his soccer practice at 6:30-7:30. We might as well have a revolving door in our house! I was so wiped out from (I think) the 12miler and work I had no desire to go run later. Decided a "rest" day was in order.
THURS- Tempo Thursday. Another super hot day in Ohio, so I headed right to the Rec after work and got my 45 min tempo run in. I did first 24 mins at a 7:41 pace and next 24 mins at a 7:30 pace. (Can you tell the TM have a time limit of 25mins?) all in all 6.2 miles in 48 mins. Awesome! Almost my PR for a 10k. Only 2 weeks left before the Air Force 10k. I'm feeling good about it (knock on wood!).
FRI- 100 degrees and a s
This weekend- I'm not sure what to do... running a 5k on Monday, but I need to get a long run in too. Might run after the race. Anyone ever done that?
