On Wednesday morning, I met my friend, Angie, at 4:30am to run hill repeats. Angie is on my Ragnar Relay team and will also be running the Tennessee hills in November. I felt like a total badass until I checked the Garmin stats and found out that the hill isn't near big enough for Ragnar training. Crap. I'll be tackling a bigger hill next week.
On Saturday, Kate met me in my hood at 5am to join me for part of my long run. I needed to get it done early since I had a baby shower to attend two hours away later that day. I was originally going to run 13 miles, but cut it down because I had such a busy day planned and I didn't want to be too tired to enjoy it. Don't worry, I wasn't.
This weekend, I was a little late to the party, but that didn't deter us from our usual shenanigans.
Here are a few gem moments:
Monday- Run: 3.25mi
Tuesday- Strength: Abs & Arms
Wednesday- Run: 6mi
Thursday- Bike: 11.4mi (Random Thoughts), PM Run: 5mi
Saturday- Run: 10.56mi
Total miles for Week 8: 36.21
Total running miles for Week 8: 24.81
How was YOUR training this week?
Do you ever get away for the weekend? I look forward to these weekends and I always come back a little hung over, thoroughly exhausted, completely refreshed and ecstatic to see Randy and the Little Ladies.
