Sunday: Oh thank goodness! A rest day! My everything hurts.
Monday: A day off means a rare sunlight run! I busted out 8 hilly miles with as strong finish with my last half mile at 8:40 pace! Not bad considering I wasn’t sure if I could walk this morning! All of the muscles in my back are still sore from Saturday’s slip-and-slide.
I also attended taekwondo with Little Runner and was privileged to witness his belt ceremony for the first time. He is now a blue belt, which is the half-way point to black belt at his school. I’m so proud of him!
Tuesday: Five early morning miles with my running group. I switched my early morning at work just so I could attend 🙂
Wednesday: Little Runner is sick so no 8 miler for me 😦 So far, I haven’t completed any of my Wednesday Eights. I have two more left on the schedule.
Thursday:LR is still sick but improving so I was able to complete my five miles on the treadmill.
Friday: Swim! I set a distance PR! I first thought it was 1800 yds but then realized that I can’t count. I now think it was 2250! Whatever. I was just glad it was stroke work with paddles and pull buoys rather than endurance!
Saturday: The weather was looking dicey so I decided to stay inside. I had a great 8 mile run on the treadmill while watching the second Hunger Games movie. The fact that I had to do it at pace so it wasn’t a butt-kicker helped the enjoyment factor 🙂
Miles for the week: 26
Total training miles: 300.9 <– woot!
