Oops. It’s Saturday in Australia – Friday for people in the US. And I am just writing up last weeks training. My run is tomorrow! Eep! I’m not ready. Anyway. Let’s have a look at how last week went.
I was in California, and I celebrated my birthday early (on Friday)- so that really made it difficult to keep running – I got a bike! So, I naturally wanted to ride it all the time!
Monday, May 15
4 miles, easy pace (10:17min/mile)
Holey moley! There are some crazy hills in this neighborhood!
Tuesday, May 16
- Rest day
Wednesday, May 17
Thursday, May 18
Friday, May 19
Saturday, May 20
Sunday, May 14
8 miles, easy
Weekly mileage: 19 miles
Overview: Not the best week mileage wise. I didn’t do speed work, but I did a lot of hills, which are apparently speedwork in disguise. On Saturday I was planning on a long run, but ended up with doing a shorter workout with some faster paced miles in there.
It’s very difficult when you are away, staying with other people, to keep up your running routine. I found that if I didn’t run in the morning that I just couldn’t fit it in during the rest of the day, especially when it was heating up to 90+ degrees. Also, if people don’t run, they don’t really understand that you would rather run in the evening and eat a very late dinner. Oh well, I’m not too upset with how this week went.
Still no strength work though! Must work on that!
