Happy Monday! Last week was a lot of great running. I definitely felt tired at the end of the week. Not in a bad way, just in the kind of way where you know your fitness is adapting. Nothing a burrito & some extra sleep can’t cure.
Monday 6/24: lower body weights & 6 miles easy at 9:29 avg
Tuesday 6/25: upper body weights & 6 miles easy at 9:17 avg
Wednesday 6/26: 2 miles up, 12 x 45 seconds uphill (start at 10k effort & work down to finish final few all out), jog down rest, 2 mile cool. Total of 6.5 miles at 9:19 avg. I got to run uphill into the wind as well, so that made it extra spicy LOL.
Thursday 6/27: lower body weights & 7.43 miles on the trails with 600 ft of elevation gain. Running on the trails after squats and deadlifts is tough for me. I usually eat a little extra before my workout because I always need it.
Friday 6/28: I was supposed to go to the gym for an upper body day, but I didn’t really want to do that since I was also planning to drive to the head lands for a trail run. I did some weights and body weight stuff at home before heading out. The run 9.11 miles on the trails with 1860 feet of gain (and it was awesome! So glad I went).
Saturday 6/29: 16 mile long run, final 6 miles alternate half mile at HM effort, half mile easy (7:22/7:15/7:25/7:19/7:17/7:08). By the last rep my glutes were shouting at me after Friday’s trails. My stomach was kind of cranky and upset, but was ok for the run. Getting used to warmer runs still, but overall the effort was good.
Sunday 6/30: 45 mins cross training on the Peloton.
