Greetings from Bar Harbor, Maine!
I’m pretty sure this felt like my most lackluster week (running-wise) in a while. I felt like I couldn’t get any “speed” (it’s a relative term here) going and I was nursing an angry heel. However, I think I was smart to take an extra rest day or two and get it under control!
Monday: 4.5 miles run/walk on the treadmill. My heel was really tight so I took it easy while watching Dancing with the Stars at the gym.
Wednesday: AM strength training, PM 6.4 miles running. It was slower than the last time I did the route, but I didn’t walk, which I was happy with.
Thursday: 3.5 mile trail run. It was part of the weekly series I did last year. The course was super rugged this year. I slowly made it through while only walking two really steep technical parts. I demoed some trail shoes and loved them. Oh, and I got a free pair of feetures! (My favorite sock)
Friday – Saturday: Rest (or more like I couldn’t get up Saturday morning…)
Sunday: 4.5 miles adventuring around Bar Harbor!
Weekly total: 18.9 miles. (not as bad as I thought!)
How was your running week?
