It was a good week.
I almost left it at that ^^^ Wouldn’t it have made for a funny blog post, LOL??
Anyway, here’s the boring details 😀
Monday, 6/13–4 easy miles, 9:37 avg
I was hellbent on getting my easy miles to be easy going into Week 3, and I did a way better job at keeping it steady.
Splits–9:38, 9:48:9:35, 9:34
I think it helped that it was 90 degrees out (at 7 p.m.).
Tuesday, 6/14–5 morning miles, 9:11 avg; 3 evening miles, 9:37 avg
I did a two for Tuesday helping my girl Foxy Jen on her workout. 1 mile WU, 3 miles of something–I forgot what her specific plan was, lol–and one mile CD.
Splits–10:14, 8:54, 8:53, 8:49, 9:05 <—we didn’t do so well keeping the last mile a cool down
Then, I ran 3 easy (and very hot) evening miles with some buddies.
Wednesday, 6/15–Rest Day
Hanson’s has Wednesdays as the sole rest day. Gonna start sticking it in there to get used to it.
Thursday, 6/16–7 morning miles, 9:31 avg; 2.2 evening miles, 10:35 avg
Another double. I did another workout with Jen. She had a 1 mile WU, 5 miles MP, and 1 mile CD. I really think that the only way I’ve been helping her is by keeping her company because I seem to ruin her pacing. She was supposed to be at a 9:45 pace for her MP miles and our splits were:
Splits–10:01 WU, 9:33, 9:37, 9:36, 9:18, 9:14, 9:29 CD =FAIL
Then, in the evening, it was RoadRunner’s monthly Adventure Run! Our group decided the only thing we wanted to accomplish was running to the water slide and back. It’s been ridiculously hot here in Phoenix.
After the run were the raffles and I won a free entry to a local 5k next month!! 😀
Friday, 6/17–Rest Day
I meant to run. But I had gotten home pretty late the night before and said no to my alarm clock. So I spent the morning tracking Suzy‘s marathon online (she killed it, tying her PR of 3:06 <– you read that right).
Plus, my husband and I had a rare date night and no way would I ruin my hair with a morning run.
We had plans to go a Spanish rock concert of two my favorite bands, Hombres G and Los Enanitos Verdes. It’s seriously times like these when I wished the whole world spoke Spanish. People are missing out on some amazing music.
Saturday, 6/18–Easy 4 miles, 9:58 avg
After a week of two doubles, a mid-week longish run, a mild hangover, and 100 degree weather, it wasn’t difficult keeping the pace easy for this run.
Splits–10:25, 10:11, 9:53, 9:26
Total miles for Week 3–25.58 I feel really good with the build up; week one 21 miles, and week two 22 miles. It’s still super low compared to what awaits me, but I like where I’m headed and how I’m feeling. Just want to stay injury free 🙂
–How was your running week?
–What is the last concert you saw?
