Lots of rest this week. I guess I needed it. So not too much to discuss running wise.
Monday – 17 mile/27.2km Long Run, avg pace 9:58/mile
This went pretty well! Kept everything relaxed, didn’t push it. I hope to cut down my pace some more, but I realize I’ve got some time to do that. But that’s still progress.
Tuesday – Rest
Was supposed to go for an easy 5k, but the weather was scary looking and unpredictable, and I got stuck at work late, so instead I sat on the couch and surfed the interwebz.
Wednesday – Strength + Hills
Did some strength training during my lunch break, then crushed some hills with my girls in the evening. I did 6 x 1 min hill sprints, with the last one longer. The other girls did 5 x 45 second sprints, and I was so proud of them! They all pushed themselves hard and did more than they originally set out to do! ❤
Thursday – Rest
I had hoped to do some strength training, but was really busy with work and couldn’t fit it in. I had also thought of doing an easy 5k, but after work I was tired and hungry and opted to eat a whole bunch of BBQ brisket instead. I don’t feel bad since the legs were tired and I needed them to get un-tired before the half on Saturday.
Friday – Rest
The only planned rest day this week! Go me!
Saturday – Invermere Half Marathon
Ran hard but got my ass kicked by the insane amount of hills on this course. Finish time: 2:01. Full recap in a couple days.
Sunday – Rest
Was going to hike today, but a massive traffic jam on the highway took up a lot of our time and desire to do anything other than get back to Calgary. Oh well.
