Monday – Monday was Monday. Nothing good ever happened on a Monday.
Tuesday – Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful day! 70 degrees with a cool breeze. Loved every single step of an easy 4-mile run.
Wednesday – Another gorgeous day outside, and my dogs deserved to enjoy it too. Leisurely 1.5 mile walk with them at the park.
Thursday – Pretty good track session! But I’m thinking I may have to move my intervals to the treadmill for a little while. Unless I want to dodge high school football players and/or the band practicing, I have to wait until after 6:00 pm to go to the track. I like to be done and showered by 6:00 pm.
Friday – Shitty day at work. Beer trumped run. I so wish I could be one of those people who are all, “Oh golly gee, I’m so stressed. I can’t wait to go for a run.” Nope. Not me. I’m more, “Fuck this. I need a drink.”
Saturday – I waited until it was really warm to get out there and then probably pushed the pace a little too hard. I stopped for a second to catch my breath at 2.5 and then just never picked the pace back up.
Sunday – Sunday just sucked. Summer came back for what I hope was her last visit. It was hot. It was humid. It was downright miserable. I just couldn’t stay out of my head. By the end of those six miles I had convinced myself that I suck at running and have no business even trying to do it. I know that was just Summer talking, but I’m beginning to think she might be right!
Monday: Strength (One day I might actually do one of these)
Tuesday: 5 easy
Wednesday: 4 x 400 + strength
Friday: 4 tempo
Saturday: Rest/easy XT
This week will probably get shifted around a bit, too, because I have appointments Monday and Tuesday afternoons, but I’ll figure it out! I haven’t missed a run in this training plan yet, and I want to keep that streak going!
