This week was a challenge for me as I wanted to get all of my runs out of the way early on in the week since we had plans for the weekend. I am also excited that I actually started riding my bike this week since I really need to get better with cross training. The weather was still incredibly hot this week so I will be stuck on the treadmill a couple of times a week but my long runs are always done on the road regardless.
Monday: 7 Miles on the TM @8:58 pace
Tuesday: Cross Training Day: 30 minutes on the bike trainer
Wednesday: 7 Miles on the TM @8:58 pace
Thursday: REST DAY
Friday: 18 Miles @8:44 pace. I had a much better run than last week. The weather was about 10 degrees cooler and overcast for the first 7 miles. It warmed up towards the end so I had to bring the pace down in order to finish without feeling too exhausted.
Saturday: REST DAY and ROAD TRIP WITH THE FAMILY TO SIN CITY. I will do a separate post to talk about our trip.
Sunday: ANOTHER REST DAY
TOTAL MILES: 32
Next week I am planning on a 20 miler if the weather allows for it. I am thinking about heading out to the beach or a much cooler place to get my long run done. It has to be done because I know that until I run a decent 20 miler, I won't commit to another marathon.
How was your week? Are you struggling with the heat like I am?
