Another week of running 6 days for a total of 25.69 miles. During the week it wasn’t too hot (but it was humid) but it did warm up on Friday and Saturday. We were warned.
I’ve run 125.3 miles for the California Coast 500. I need an additional 124.7 by September 7. At this rate I am estimating that I will be done at the end of August.
Tuesday was 3 miles at easy pace. That means running in zones 1 or 2.
On Thursday my workout was 2 sets of 3:15 with 1:20 recovery. I did not want to get up but knew I had to because then it would be too hot out there. I did pretty good and I was proud of myself.
Friday morning I ran 3 miles again. I didn’t think I was going that “fast” but it was humid and well you know what happened. Still I did pretty well.
Saturday morning I ran 8.15 miles. I woke up at 4am and was undecided on whether I should go to the lake or run by my house. I decided to go to the lake. I noticed right away that I wasn’t as tired as I usually am in the morning. On Friday I told my coach that I was not going to stress out about pace or training zones. I ran and walked whenever I got the high heart rate alert. It worked out just fine. At this point, because it is summer, that is about all I can do.
I was a little annoyed that there were a bunch of teenagers (no masks) hanging out (it was 6am so they must have been out there from the night before). Oh and I saw a slow moving car with the passenger door open and someone’s head sticking out. I think you know what she was doing. I was grossed out. This was in a different area that I never run by and don’t think I will again. Oh, and I was disgusted by all of the garbage that people left too.
I finished Week 1 of Pelothon 2020 of team #LegendsofFun. I took 6 classes. When I first signed up for this challenge I thought it would be all cycling classes. Boy was I wrong! I am glad for this challenge because I am being exposed to other instructors and different classes. I actually enjoyed the meditation class. 🙂 I know I said I would never take another running class , but I took one today and it was actually fun! I enjoyed the music and the 20 minutes went by fast.
Overall it was a good week. I am enjoying my time off, but still need to finish decluttering. I am reading “The Hummingbird’s Daughter” and need to finish it by next Sunday to discuss it with friends on a Zoom book club meeting.
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
