A good week! Ran 5 days for a total of 20.91 miles. Pleased with how this week went.
Wednesday’s workout was 2 sets of 3×3 minutes with 90 seconds recovery. I did this later in the evening. I thought about doing it the following day but I realized that if I did, I would lose the RunBet Challenge. Talk about motivation! 🙂
My first set was all positive splits but the second one was all negative splits. I will confess that I did stop my watch to quickly catch my breath. Then I kept going. It still counts, right?
On Saturday I ran my longest run since the Atlanta Half Marathon in March. It was tough. It was the first day of summer and it was HOT. My overall pace was 12:36 and I thought that was pretty good since it was hot and an easy run. It was fun running around my neighborhood seeing all of the graduation signs.
I’ve mentioned that I have way too many pairs of shoes. I knew it was time to wear a new pair and could not decide between the Ghost 12 (NYC Marathon) or Launch 7 (Brave like Gabe). I checked out what other pairs I had and found the Launch 5 Tie Dye. Yes, Launch 5. I bought these in Denver when I ran the RnR Denver Half Marathon. I wore them 3 times and then put them aside since at that time I was running in a different pair.
I saw on Facebook that the lakefront will be open tomorrow. It’s been months since I’ve run there so I am excited to go there. I won’t be able to make it tomorrow but my plan is to go on Saturday for a long run. I did get annoyed that they mentioned joggers instead of runners. Isn’t it the same thing?
This week was my first week of Summer School. It is going well with my 16 kids. On a daily basis, about 13 or 14 log in my Google Meet session. I like them all a lot. They’re smart and excited to learn. I made a postcard for them and was ready to mail it yesterday but the envelopes I had ordered were the wrong size. I ordered more and should get them today.
Summer is not my favorite season for running. I prefer Fall. I will try not to complain too much about the weather. I do need to make sure to get out there before it gets too sunny and warm. 🙂
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
