Now that I’m moved back home and back into a little of a routine, I will start doing weekly recap posts! This upcoming week, I will start training for the Charles St. 12 Miler (August 9th), and the Lake Placid/North Elba Classic Half Marathon (September 6th). I’m not quite sure how it will work with a month between them – but I’m sure I’ll figure it out. If you have any tips on races a short time apart, feel free to share!
Sunday 5/25 – 3.1 miles, 33:10, 15,530 steps
Still getting back into the swing of things after a long week of finals, and graduation celebrations. I went out at 6:30 – my earliest run ever – and it was quite enjoyable!
Monday 5/26 – Rest, 9,700 steps
Baseball game in Washington DC with some of the bests before saying “so long”!
Tuesday 5/27 – 3.23 miles around Silver Spring, 18,108 steps
Randomly ran around Silver Spring and came across many hills that I was not ready for. I’m viewing my time as irrelevant, as I was stopped at countless stoplights.
Wednesday 5/28 – Rest, drove 11 hours from Silver Spring, MD to Gorham, NH. I awoke to this beauty on my brand new car (it just hit 5,000 miles!). UGH.
Thursday 5/29 – 3.68 miles, 42:55, 13,118 steps
First run of the Solomon Spring Trail Running Series at Great Glen Trails. My first trail run ever – super difficult but enjoyable! I definitely can improve on that time.
Friday 5/30 – 2,845 steps.
I had every intention to run as my boyfriend had broken up with me Thursday night. But my legs were super sore from Thursday’s adventure, and it was storming all night so I took it as a sign to rest (and wallow).
Saturday 5/31 – 4 miles, 40:00, 8,156 steps (as of 10:30 a.m.)
I really needed this run. After being so out of whack the past few weeks, these 4 miles felt great. I’m totally okay with being slow as long as I feel as good as I did today. My mile splits were even and I easily powered up two hills in the last mile. I feel so positive heading into my half marathon training that starts Monday!
What was your favorite part of this past week?
Has anyone ran into your parked car? I’m so aggrivated – the person didn’t leave a note or anything. Thankfully my car still runs fine and it will be fixed in a couple of weeks. We know the people who own the garage, so they’re making it so I don’t have to pay a deductible!
