Week 3 Craziness

Week 3 seems like it was SO long ago.  I've been going and going and somehow have managed to get most of my plan done.  All I can say is thank goodness the Runner's World Run Streak is almost over.  My legs are really feeling it, BUT I've been a pro using the stick and my foam roller and it's gone by fast.

Tuesday and Wednesday: 4 miles on the treadmill followed by one mile outside.  Both of those runs felt really good.  The AC in the gym was much appreciated.

Friday: I had planned on running 6 miles at the park before heading out for my college roommate's wedding weekend, but only 4.25 happened.  I know I'll have to make adjustments based on how my body is feeling, but I couldn't help but feel a little discouraged.  I went through my training plan and knocked a mile off each of my long runs to help with the heat factor this summer.  Like I said, I'm ready for the streak to be over!  These legs of mine are tired!

Monday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday:  1 mile for the streak.

Total Mileage for the Week: 18.25ish.
Total Training Plan Mileage: 51.25

Over all it was a good week.  I managed to balance lots of travel and fun filled days with my plan and I have high hopes that I'll be able to continue to do so as the summer progresses.  As I've said before, I love running, but it's not always my number one priority.  This week being able to be there for my beautiful roommate as she tied the knot was the most important thing to me, so I'm glad that running was able to work itself around it.  The wedding was amazing and it was so much fun seeing some of my old friends (the bride and I went to both high school and college together!).

Who needs two straps on your dress when you have an awesome running line?

The day after the wedding my nice friend and I took a quick walk on the Noland Trail, my favorite place to run in college, before heading back home.  It was so nice to be back at my old stomping grounds for a few days!

How did your week in training go?  Been back to visit any of your old running spots recently?

  1. Haha, I love the strap line! Do you also have the really sexy Garmin line on your wrist? I have been sporting my proudly at every lunch, baby shower, and meeting I've gone to this summer :)
