I hope you’re enjoying the long weekend. We’ve had a lot of down time, which is just what I needed. I even got a nap in yesterday!
Today kicks off the 5 and 10 virtual race series- run your 5 mile or 10 mile “race” by Thursday, the 5th! Everyone participating should have received an email from me with a link to the results spreadsheet (Note: Jessica, Ashlee and Desiree- I don’t have your email! Please get in touch with me- thanks!!)
So another week of training is done. Here’s how the week looked:
Sunday: 8.5 mile group run (8:30 ave)
Monday: 25 minute elliptical + mixed with strength circuit
Tuesday: 8 mile tempo run, splits (8:24, 7:35, 7:18, 7:0, 7:04, 7:31, 7:30, 7:36)
Wednesday: 8 easy run (8:50 ave) + core
Thursday: Strength circuit and 20 minute walk
Friday: 5.5 run, easy pace
Saturday: 14 long run with new running buddies
I have a 5k tomorrow morning, and I don’t think I’m going to “race it” as my knees are starting to feel it from all these NJ hills. I’m hoping for a solid tempo run in the middle of 6-8 miles. But either way, it should be fun!
Later tomorrow, my daughter and I will head to PA to spend a few days with my parents. Her preschool starts Wednesday, but her first day is the following Monday so I’m taking my mom up on her offer for a little childcare help so I can get some work done this week.
Staying with my parents makes meal planning easy!
Tuesday: In PA
Wednesday: In PA
Thursday: In PA
Friday: Grilled salmon, Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad and homemade guacamole
Saturday: Homemade Pizza
What do you have planned for Labor Day?
