Wow, it’s brutally hot outside today! TGFT! That would be “Thank Goodness for Treadmills!” My treadmill room has been a complete wreck for the last several months, but I spent most of yesterday getting it all cleaned out and rearranged. This morning I fixed the computer and got it running again, and then moved the treadmill so that I can now spend my long runs watching Netflix! Yay! And by giving Lucy her frozen Kong treat right when I was ready to get going, I actually made it 20 minutes before she started to mess with the treadmill and I had to lock her out of the room. Progress!
So here’s how this week went running-wise:
- Monday: 3.27 mile run + 3 w/Lucy
- Tuesday: 4 miles w/Lucy
- Wednesday: 4 mile run + 1.5 w/Lucy
- Thursday: 3 mile run (hills) + 1.5 w/Lucy
- Friday: 3 miles w/Lucy
- Saturday: 5 miles w/Lucy
- Sunday: 5.52 mile LSR + 2.5 (so far) w/Lucy
I’m starting a new half-marathon training plan tomorrow so that I can help a friend train for her first half! It’s a modified version of Hal Higdon’s Intermediate program, and is 12 weeks long. That makes the half marathon date 8/31, and leaves me with another 12 weeks that I can up my long runs for the November 16th marathon!
I’m still under 120 (119.4 this morning) and doing pretty well with my food choices. It’s really easy when you eat basically the same thing every day. But that’s okay because I never get sick of my spicy bean concoctions, topped with homemade salsa and guacamole :)
Have a great week!
