A straightforward week. I had thought I’d return to 35-40 m/wk, but I began CASA training. On Tuesday and Thursday nights I get home around 9, after 3 hours of class and a bugger of a commute. I needed this week to recalibrate my busy-meter and establish a new normal.

Monday — Indoor track with light feet, relaxed and engaged. Finished the session with some all-out sprints that may have been the fastest I’ve ever run. Followed up with normal weights action. 3.5 miles

I love this bridge.

Tuesday — 4×600. Ran relaxed and went light instead of hard. Finished these around 6:00 pace. 3.8 miles

Wednesday — Body felt heavy and slow, plus the humidity spiked. I took my phone and snapped pics of my favorite path to share with Salty Running! 2 miles

Thursday — NRC West goodness. 4 miles

Friday — Off day. 0 miles

Saturday — Normal, nothing-to-see-here long run. 11 miles

Sunday — Gobs of yoga and foam rolling for some sweet, sweet release. 0 miles

I'm a 31-year-old cat mom to Cordelia and health care fundraiser in Nashville, Tennessee. I'm working toward a 20:00 5K, though I do race other distances throughout the year. I write about track workouts and tempo runs, recovery methods, and general life lessons.
