Monday – Rest
Tuesday – Cross train. Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred level two workout.
Wednesday – 3 mile run. I headed over to the state park trail after work and did four hill repeats with a 1 mile warm up and roughly 1 mile cool down.
Thursday – Rest
Friday – 7 mile run. I chose to do my long run on Friday morning, since I am off work on Fridays. I did this run over on the Huckleberry Trail so that my run would be on rolling hills.
The new part of the trail has a few hills that are pretty big! Pictures never capture it, but trust me the hill pictured below is a big one.
Saturday – 3 mile run. Just an easy run at a nearby park, breaking in a new pair of shoes that I bought on Friday (more on that sometime in the near future…).
Sunday – 6 mile run. Debbie and her husband, Bill, were driving through my neck of the woods and decided to stop in so we could meet up for a run. Debbie and I got to run together, and I got to show them ‘my’ trail. It’s neat getting to share a place you run all of the time with others!
Debbie had her trusty, and very cool, GoPro with her, so we got some action shots toward the end of our run. Thanks for the picture, Deb!
Total Miles: 19 miles. This weekend I started cutting my mileage back in preparation for the Hokie Half Marathon. Sometimes I think we feel worse when we start cutting our mileage back, but it’s usually just our body recovering and getting ready for race day. Fingers crossed the last of this summer humidity moves out and the fall weather gets here soon!
Do you have a long weekend for Labor Day? What did you do this weekend?
Is it starting to look/feel like fall where you live?
