Another day where I’m happy I didn’t judge how the entire workout would go based on the first set of intervals…
We need to repaint our triangles because they are getting harder and harder to see.
Four miles (6:20 average), 3 miles (6:07 average), 2 miles (5:45 average), 1 mile (5:19 average) w/ one mile at an easy pace in between sets. The first two included uphill, and the last two were mostly downhill. I am a much better downhill runner than an uphill runner, which also contributed to why I felt so much better for the last two. The first half at St. George is much harder than the second half, so it was great to practice that in workouts. I love trying to mimic race courses in training so we can feel more prepared when we toe the starting line.
I considered dropping out of the first interval because I kept dropping farther behind my friends, but I’m so happy I stayed with it. I reminded myself that running is a roller coaster and to stay on the ride because the feelings will change at some point, and I’ll feel better.
I experienced 49 emotions during the run, which is part of why running makes me feel most alive. You feel so much.
About 1k ft of climbing was also exciting to get in during a mid-week road run.
Beck joined in with me for my 10-minute Peloton bodyweight workout. I’m kind of nervous about doing lower body weights before the marathon with how my hamstring recently felt, so a bodyweight workout was perfect.
It was hot outside, but the hot tub felt so good on my muscles.
Two sourdough, pesto, mozzarella, basil, and balsamic glaze sandwiches for dinner.
I think we could have both fallen asleep for the night at 6 pm.
Skye and Beck will think I am so fun when we make this today—loving the mothercould account!
Who has a September race, birthday, or anniversary?
What shoes did you wear for your last run?How many miles do you prefer before you start the speed portion of your workout? Do you eat at a counter or table most often?
