Hey guys! I’m enjoying a long weekend in Florida with my family. My mom and I spent the afternoon on the beach and I just came in to get showered and cool off. It’s gorgeous but hot! The plan tonight is a fajita dinner and then my grandmother and I are having an epic Scrabble rematch after she beat me last night while we watch the Emmy’s. Fun fact about my grandmother…she LOVES watching awards shows to check out what everyone is wearing. We’re watching the red carpet coverage on E! right now. 🙂
It’s been a while since I posted a week of workouts so I thought I’d share what last week’s looked like since I’m gearing up for the Charlotte Half Marathon and hopefully the Kiawah Half as well. I’ve definitely decided I’m a no-go on the Kiawah Full. I’m totally in the camp of half the distance, twice the fun this season!
LAST WEEK’S WORKOUTS
Monday: 4.75 mile run at 8:30 pace + teach Y2 Strength
Tuesday: 60 mins hot yoga
Wednesday: 3.5 mile run at 8:34
Thursday: 3 mile walk
Friday: 5 mile run at 9:00 pace
Saturday: 3.1 miles of treadmill intervals, mostly sprints + glutes + back strength training
Sunday: 5 mile run at 9:15 pace
I ended up at 21 miles for the week! No long run this week but I’ll get back to it next week. I’ve done 8 a few times so I’ll shoot for 9-10 next week. I’m VERY casually training for these races!
Here are details on my Saturday strength workout. I shared it on Instagram.
