This week was an interesting one. My mileage wasn’t were I would like it to be, but I did actually get in 3 quality days of running.
I also flew out to California, so traveling can always make it a little difficult. I have to say, I’m loving the cooler temps in California – I can run in the middle of the day at it’s only around the mid 70s!!

Overview: So, not the best week, but not terrible. I’m actually pretty happy with it. I missed my speed work on Tuesday, due to laziness in the morning, and then the surf being fun in the afternoon. I kept Wednesday as a rest day (but surfed). Thursday my Tempo run was just difficult. After running so much in the afternoon/evening and then going straight into a hard workout in the morning didn’t work too well. But I am happy with my paces – that’s where I want my tempos to be for my marathon training.
Thursday I flew to California, arrived late at night, and ended up not running on Friday. I managed to get out to the beautiful American River Trail for my Saturday run, and decided on putting in a bit of speed work. This run went so well! Especially with the rolling hills on the trail. Sunday I went back to the trail and did 10 miles – which were also fantastic.
2 weeks to go!
