This week was not as great as last week in terms of running. I overdid it on leg day and I was sore for a couple of days. I missed a run and was forced to take a rest day and missed a run but I am okay with it since it was for a good reason.
Here is a recap of my week.
Monday: Rest Day- My son had his last band concert and that was the priority of the evening.
Tuesday: 7.39 Mile Tempo Run on the treadmill. It was way too hot to run outdoors but it ended up being a really good run. I could have kept going but I only had an hour to get it done.
Wednesday: Since it was National Running Day, I went for a 4 Mile run with my other half. It was rough in the 85 degree temps but we survived.
Thursday: Squats, Planks and Push Ups. I think I added too much weight for my squats and ended up being really sore for a couple of days.
Friday: I had to take a forced Rest Day since my quads and my rear end were in too much pain to do anything.
Saturday: I paced my friend to a sub two hour half marathon finish. It was a great day! She PR'd by 12 minutes and she was incredibly happy! I love seeing others reach their goals. It is a better feeling to me than when I earn a PR! I got my long run done at MGP so it worked out for both of us!
Congratulations to Megan who also smashed her goal and ran a sub two half! She is proof that you never know what you are capable of until you step out of your comfort zone! I am so darn happy for her! I gave her the biggest hug ever and couldn't get enough of the big smile on her face! I am telling you, it was one of the best days ever!
Sunday: I attended my annual family reunion and took a break from running but I did work my arms and my back.
Total Miles: 24.56
How was your week? Did you race this weekend?
