Mint’s Training Log – 8.4.13

Hello Salty Readers!

It has been a while since I posted a training log because, well frankly, I haven’t been doing much training.  My left shoulder/back/neck have been slow to heal from my mountain bike crash.  Add to that a very, very busy schedule at work and my training has been pretty pathetic.  I am really hoping to start ramping back up (yes, I know, I’ve said that several times….).  Fingers crossed. One of the first things I need to do is set a goal for fall/winter.  Any suggestions?

It's official.  I am now  a Masters runner.

Monday was my 40th birthday!  Unfortunately I did not have time for a run as I was in Atlanta for work and I was very busy all day.

Tuesday I ran for just over an hour.  7 miles / 8:51 pace.

Wednesday it was warm and super humid, so I just took it nice and easy.  3 miles / 9:11 pace.

Thursday wasn’t quite so warm, but I was dog tired.  4.3 miles / 9:03 pace.

Friday was a rest day.

Saturday I made the mistake of waiting until after 10 am to run.  It was sunny and in the 80s.  Whew I am not acclimated to the heat at all.  The worst part was that I forgot BodyGlide and ended up with some wicked chafing.  I also got a bad dehydration headache that I had to fight all day.  I really need to get back into training mode where I think about these potential issues before I run.  8.15 miles / 9:06 pace.

Sunday the birthday fun continued as my oldest son turned 12!  I ran 70 minutes and got just over 7.5 miles.  Not sure of the exact distance or pace because my Garmin is not cooperating.  Next up: Miller Park for a Brewers game!

Total: 30 miles.

  1. Woohoo! So nice to see you back at it and just in time for your birthday (well, the days after your birthday!) Didn’t the court know how important that day was? I can’t believe they scheduled a hearing! Ha! Hope you continue to stay on the up and up!
