Rather than make excuses about why I didn’t write a training log last week I’m going to take a cue from today’s post and just get back to it and list last week’s running. This week featured (mostly) shorter runs and only one day off in the attempt to make the heat a little easier on myself.
Sunday, 7/20 – 8 miles easy, taking a friend on a swell little tour of Brooklyn
Monday 7/21 – Started the day off in a Salty way by meeting up with our own Garlic at the East River Track! We did a series of drills that absolutely kicked my ass six ways to Sunday and left me dragging until I took a day off on Thursday. Later that evening I ran to a hash, logging about 6 miles before relaxing with my friends at a fun cookout in Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Tuesday 7/22 – 4 miles of tempo-ish pace, dripping in the heat and whining about how sore I was from Monday’s drills. Clearly I need to do more of those…
Wednesday 7/24 – 4 miles commuting
Thursday – off
Friday 7/25 – About 4 miles hashing
Saturday 7/26 – About 6 to 7 miles hashing…it was hard to tell, since I was out of town and unfamiliar with the terrain, but it was really really fun!
Total: 32 miles.
I would like to start getting more of my mileage in outside of the hash, and since I’m working more this week, that will likely happen. I started off on the right foot on Sunday with a fine 7.5 mile run and followed up with a day off on Monday while I worked a 16 hour day. Today the big goal is 8, and I’m going to try (again) to run with a running club in Central Park for a 5 mile Fartlek. Hopefully by holding myself accountable here I’ll finally make it there!
