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?
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.
