Happy Tuesday!! How was your weekend? Mine was really fun and filled with all the best stuff: Friends, family, fathers and of course:running!!
This is the last week of school, and today is my last day!!!!! Yahoooooooooo!!!!!!!! I can’t believe it’s already here! The final countdown of hours left in my school year is ON.
Mileage/BBG Recap for 6/15-6/21
Monday:(no running) BBG-Legs& Cardio. first day of BBG!!! As I mentioned last week, this workout is extremely challenging! Friday was the first day that I woke up and WASNT sore in my legs from Monday’s workout.the moves are easy enough, however they are extremely effective.
Tuesday- 7 easy miles. First run in you new Ghost 8s, and they were a dream come true to my happy feet!!
Wednesday- AM. 7 miles with my girlfriend, middle miles @7:13 avg pace. I love the tempo run!! All summer long, I will be working on getting that tempo pace DOWN.
Wednesday PM-BBG-Arms & abs.
Thursday-4.25 easy miles
Friday–AM–1.5 mile warm up, 6x400s w/400 recovery in between. Splits were 1:29, :30, :30, :29, :30, :30. As far as 400s go-this was probably my best, and most evenly executed splits that I have ever run before. I am so happy with my progress! It was fun to do these with a friend who is a little bit faster than I am-I loved chasing after her and it definitely motivated me to dig in and go for it.
Friday-PM- BBG,abs/cardio, 2.5 mile run. On Friday, I was really happy with myself for completing a FULL week of these workouts. Each BBG day, I found myself to be really excited for the hard work I was about to do. Kind of like track workouts-I get totally excited to nail those splits!!!
I can see progress in myself already. My legs feel SO strong and my whole entire body feels stronger. I’m excited to see my weekly progress!
Saturday-16 miles, 8:20 avg pace. After a whole week of new-to-me workouts, I’m not surprised that my pace was that slow! I’m completely okay with long run paces slipping sometimes because I know that it will take me a few weeks to get used to the workouts.
Sunday: 5 miles, in the pouring rain. This was such a refreshing run. Summertime rain= happy girl!
46.3 Miles for the week, 7:53 avg pace.
Do you like running in the rain?
Anybody out of school for the summer?
