Good morning! I hope everyone is having an awesome weekend. I know a lot of people raced yesterday or this morning and I hope you all did great! I will hopefully be racing next weekend, depending on what is found during my procedure Tuesday.
Other than that, I had a decent week of workouts and a really great eight mile run yesterday.
Yes I was wearing that running. In December. It was a humid 75 degrees, welcome to the south.
However, despite the heat, I was able to run really well, and finished up eight miles in 1:19. Considering all my health problems lately, I was very proud of that number.
Here is the rest of the week’s workouts:
Monday: rest/GI Doctor appointment
Tuesday: ran 3 miles, lifted upper body weights
Wednesday: lifted upper body weights
Thursday: ran 6 miles in one hour
Friday: lifted upper body weights, 30 minutes stationary bike
Saturday: 8 miles 1:19
Lifted weights X’s 3
ran 17 miles
cross trained one time
I have also been trying to do lots of stretching as I up my miles in my marathon training. The last thing I want is a cramp in the middle of running goofy in January!
Don’t forget to check out my Facebook page starting tomorrow for a week with ten giveaway’s on some friends’ blogs (and mine!)
