Last week was week 4/16 in my Air Force Marathon training cycle. It had a lot of good and some not so great mixed in!
Sunday-6/19: I had an easy 8 miler, Dare went with me and we had a great time. I felt great and got in some strength work. I have been working on making sure to get in better for me protein and snacks. With a hot and humid 8 miler done apparently fruit snacks and avocado toast with eggs and sriacha are called for. 🙂
Monday-6/20: Rest day! I love rest days because they give me a chance to hang out with my little lady!!
Tuesday-6/21: A few miles with a few hills. It was cooler out so I got to relax while I ran and breathe without the humidity kicking my butt. The shorter run also worked well with making to the ball diamond for Diggs baseball game!
Wednesday-6/22: 6 mile fartlek….I was very nervous about this run but if you read my previous post you already know it went GREAT! I have been having a hard time with 6 milers and I just don’t know why. Maybe it is my mental game.
Thursday-6/23: Rest Day and Baseball! Diggs had his last game with his team the Blue Jays…now he is on to All Stars and starts practice for that this week.
Friday-6/24: An easy few miles with a few strides. I felt great and got prepared for my race Saturday morning by attending the Electric parade in Sturgis. KK loved it! 🙂 The lighting was horrible and I only had my phone on me but this is a float from the night time parade. Everything was lit up or had some sort of glow to it.
Saturday-6/25: I wrapped up this weeks training with the Courthouse Classic 5k. It was not my best performance to say the least but I am working on a recap to get up and tell you all the great details! It was a fun event and a good way to wrap up the week. The only issue was as soon as I got home and took off my shoes I could feel a niggle in my right foot. I don’t like those AT ALL! So to get myself to relax…we headed to the lake 😉
How was your week of training?
