I had a great running week!Things started out a bit shaky on Monday, but that seems to have been a temporary blip.
I was brave and went for my first run with a running group! I ran 3.26 with the group (well, the group was actually just two of us…) and then ran home by myself, for a total of 6.2 miles in 1:03:19.
Did an unscheduled 5K. My husband was working from home and felt like going for a quick run so I went with him. The pace was pretty easy (for me) – 3.1 miles in 33:15.
After the run, I went to the gym and did the “dumbbell hell” workout from this page:
5 DB deadlifts
5 DB hang cleans
5 DB push press
5 DB squats
I did 10 rounds with 20# DBs. After every two rounds I had a little breather. This was TOUGH!
Long run: 11 miles in 1:47:13.
Did two ZWOW workouts back to back: ZWOW #11 (score: 4.2) and ZWOW #10 (score 2.1…which is down from my previous score of 2.5, ugh). I still had some DOMS in my quads from Wednesday’s strength workout, so I did 15 very easy minutes on the elliptical and then made sure to stretch out a ton.
7.6 mile run…was only supposed to go 6.2 but got carried away. Ended up hitting the wall at mile 6. It was my first time running in the heat in a looooong time.
Rest day! My legs are definitely feeling like they need it.
Total Miles Ran This Week:
30.74…which is too many. It’s up 25% from last week! I try to only increase my mileage by a max of 10% from week to week. This is mostly due to poor decision making on my part.
