Another great week for me! Ran 5 days for a total of 18.33 miles and did another 2 virtual races for the Uncanceled Project.
This week was a HOT one! I went out too late on Monday and struggled during my 4 miles. I am sure I was dehydrated because I had a headache and felt some chills towards the end.
I spent the rest of the day relaxing and catching up on blogs.
Apparently I did not learn my lesson on Monday because I went out again too late on Wednesday. I did 1 mile, then 4-30 second surges, and then ran easy for total 3 miles. I did pretty good with the surges (8:46/7:57/8:17/8:09)!
I am NOT eating well at all and paid for it on Thursday. I did 5 miles and it was tough. My shorts are a bit too tight and moving was not easy.
Sometimes a run sucks and sometimes it doesn’t. On Saturday my run did not suck. I ran 3 sets of 5 minutes. Couple of things: 1) Ran each set without stopping and that is something that rarely happens. 2) Got negative splits and that rarely happens too. 3) Fastest splits in a long time. I was very pleased with this run. I was happy. I know the weather had something to do with it as it was perfect for running.
I finished May with 72.05 miles. That has been my highest this year.
Sometime in March I removed the Instagram app from my phone. My last post was March 12. I downloaded the app again. At that time I had 900 followers. Well, I unfollowed everyone because I want to start over. It’s been interesting to see how many followers I lost. 🙂 I began with 900, then had 883, and ended up with 871. So I lost 29 followers in a couple of days. Tomorrow is a new month and I will start following people again.
It was kind of hard to find joy this week with everything that is going on in this country. Last night we got an alert that the Mayor had imposed a curfew (9pm-6am). Honestly, it wasn’t till last night that I saw what had been happening in the city. Now I am watching a Facebook Live of a looting taking place not too far from my house. I’ve been watching it for over an hour and cannot stop watching it.
