I’ve been seriously lagging in the blogging department for the past couple weeks. I took on some new responsibilities at work, and as much as I’ve enjoyed the challenge, the days have been wringing me out like a wet towel. Lately I’ve just been glad to find the energy to get my runs in! I do miss the blogging though. When I’m able to post regularly it always seems so much easier to find my motivation to run, live healthy, do meal prepping, etc.
Wednesday: 3.89 miles, 11:16 min/mile. Dynamic warm-up, 10 min foam roll. Hip strength 3 x 12, bridge and clamshells 3 x 25. Much warmer than I was hoping for, but I didn’t give up the ship!
Thursday: 3.88 miles, 10:49 min/mile. Good pace but my legs were tired from the day before and felt heavy. Dynamic warm-up.
Friday: Off, the Mr. got us tickets to the A’s game, they won!
Sunday: 6.21 miles, 11:18 min/mile. Dynamic warm-up. 10 min foam roll. It was an early wake-up call for this one, not only to beat the heat but also because I had brunch plans with the girls at Brenda’s French Soul Food. So delicious! The crawfish and the granny smith apple beignets are a must, but everything we ate was tasty. Oh, btw, they put little jars of peach cobbler filling on the tables to top your biscuits with. Yeah, it’s that serious.
Run total: 13.98 miles
Overall: I was hoping to add in a fourth day of running this week, but between Labor Day, work, and social funness it just wasn’t going to happen. Instead, I decided to up the mileage on the runs I was able to get in. Running back-to-back days of almost four mile runs was definitely new for my legs, it’s been a while since they’ve felt so leadish. Here’s to another week of good runs!
