This is the last full week of the Runner's World run streak. I'm through 35 days and still ticking. Four more days to go, which will be concluded with a race on the Fourth of July. Honestly, I'm exhausted and sore everywhere, but I'm gonna make it.
Monday - 6.75 miles track workout
You can read about the workout here.
Tuesday - 2.25 miles treadmill, 0.25 hours strength training
Strength training was five rounds of 5 X deadlifts at 90 pounds, 25 situps.
Wednesday - 9 miles treadmill
Wouldn't you know it started to rain/storm as soon as I needed to do a 9 miler? So, I did it on the treadmill (good gosh!) alternating between a 9:00 and 10:00 min pace.
Thursday - 1 mile
Super easy run with Dave, Sloopy, and Anderson in the stroller.
Friday - 1 mile treadmill, 0.25 hours strength training
I thought for sure I was going to break the streak today. I DID NOT want to work out, but I still found a way to get the workout in. Strength training was 10 rounds of 25 jump ropes, 10 mountain climbers (per leg).
Saturday - 5 miles treadmill, 0.25 hours strength training
It was STORMING this afternoon so again I had to do this on the treadmill. And it was supposed to be a tempo run so I worked hard to hold a sub-9:00 pace. Strength training was three reps of 10 kettlebell swings at 10 pounds, 15 knee pushups.
Sunday - 11 miles trail
I slept in way too late to avoid the heat and didn't start this run until about 11:15am. Gosh it was hot and humid! I really tried hard to keep the pace under control in a comfortable sub-10:00 range. I only had one mile over a 10:00 and averaged 9:40 pace for the whole 11 miles. This is the pace I'm aiming for for my trail races later this year. I took some pictures of the trail. I also tried to take pictures of the two wild turkeys and the two baby deer I saw, but they all ran away.
Run - 36 miles
Strength Training - 0.75 hours
