Monday: 7.5 mile fartlek. Poured rain until I got back.
Tuesday: 7.5 miles with 4 by 50 meter striders.
Wednesday: 6 miles with 8 by 30 seconds hard uphill.
Thursday: Tough day. Used what I had left of the light to scramble up Craggy Pinnacle and breathe in some air.
Friday: Jetted out for 4 miles before the trip to Chapel Hill.
Saturday: DYING with KC in the 95 degree weather but we were running in Chapel Hill, so we didn’t care. 4.5 miles. Did real arms with weights!
Sunday: 5 miles on the treadmill watching the Women’s Marathon. Still heated about the clueless announcer lambasting Desi…core after.
Total Miles: Oddly, 34.5 just like last week.
Just accepting that running cannot be priority one right now; learning to operate is. I have an amazing opportunity out here to get a ton of case hours and although it means I’m barely running, it’s a sacrifice worth making. I did get two decent efforts in last week and will aim to do the same again this week before I get to head home on Thursday!! Well, not home, but to training camp with the girls, which is just as good.
So excited for cross country to officially start and to get my own training locked and loaded (and maybe under slightly less humid conditions).
