“There’s no such thing as bad weather, just soft people.”
- A week before the Run Like a Mother 5k, I started rehydrating with at least one Trace Minerals Power Pak per day.
- I wore a long sleeve shirt on two of my morning runs for added heat training.
- All of my running this week was done in my Nike Free RN Flyknits.
- My total weekly mileage was 83 miles.
- My next race is the Knights of Columbus 15k on Saturday, May 27th in Ft. Worth, TX.
Monday Morning Run
Easy pace. Easy Run. Staying fresh for Tuesday Hills!
Half of this run, I ran on the grass. Mid 80’s and sunny.
2.5 mile warm up, 12 x 1 min hill repeats, 2.5 mile cool down
I felt really strong on this run!
Wednesday Morning Treadmill Run
I didn’t take any notes for this run, and I can’t remember why I ran on the treadmill…
It’s getting HOTTER!!!
Thursday Morning Rush Hour Run
It was super humid this morning, and I ran in a long sleeve shirt for some added heat training. I saw two or three helicopters on this run, and found out later that there was a road rage shooting during morning rush hour about a block from my route. Yikes.
Mileage- 1.4 that was supposed to be 3
Felt like 95 degrees. Tornado Watch. Ran out of time. Moved full afternoon run to Friday.
Friday Track Workout
2 mile warm up, 2 sets of 5 x 200 meters, 200 meter jog between 200’s, 1000 meter jog between sets, 2 mile cool down, 4 strides at 4:40-5:10/mile pace
Feeling stronger and more confident with this training.
Grass run after spending the late morning and early afternoon at my kids field day. Ready to get out of the heat!
Saturday Treadmill Run
Easy run. Felt a little fatigued after yesterday’s workouts and outdoor activities.
Sunday’s Long Stormy Hilly Run
Total Climb- 545ft
I managed a negative split, but I didn’t pick up the pace as much as I planned to. The amount of lightning this storm brought was a little unsettling. I ran strong up the hills and felt like it was a solid long run considering the conditions.
