Last week I had every intention to start getting back on track. Base-building. The early part of the week started out great, but by midweek I was completely swamped with work, life and Girls on the Run. So my training had to take the back-burner while I tackled everything else. The good news was it was a very fun week.
Monday – rest day
Tuesday – 75 minutes with 4 strides / 8.5 miles / 8:54 pace. Beautiful morning for a run and it felt great to get out there.
Wednesday – 62 minutes easy / 7 miles / 8:55 pace.
Thursday & Friday – off
Saturday – Our local Girls on the Run teams combined to do our “practice” 5k. But don’t be fooled, it is a full 5k and we do it up big. My running buddy rocked the course and met her goal of coming in between 25 and 27 minutes. 25:27 / 8:13 pace.
Sunday – my family participated in the local mud run. We run on a police team and rather than racing it, run at the pace of the slowest person and stick together. It was awesome and we had a blast.
Total: 23 miles and change.
Next week (this week), I’ll be back at it. Really.
