If I'm going to get myself on track for marathon training, I should probably be more committed to my weekly workouts.
I rested Monday and ran 3 miles Tuesday. Wednesday I did another session of squats and full-body using NTC (I need to do a post about NTC sometime...eventually). Although I planned to run Thursday, it stormed just as I was planning my run, so that was ruined. (A con of not having a gym membership right now.)
|Tuesday's run...As you can see, I'm starting to feel a little more myself lately.|
Friday we drove up to Sarasota...no running.
Saturday morning I ran around my parents' neighborhood and had my first good run in awhile. My pace was steady. Even though it was hot and humid early in the morning, I still felt stronger. I felt confident. I seriously can't seem to have a bad run in their neighborhood.
|I look super derpy (this was nearly at the end of my run) but I wanted to show the pretty view!|
I wanted to repeat that performance Sunday but stupidly set the alarm for weekdays instead of weekends and slept too late; by the time we got home that evening, it was too late to run. (In summer in Florida, midday runs aren't an option for me.)
|I didn't run Sunday, so here's a picture of Matt finishing his 10k SUP race Saturday.|
So last week was seriously pathetic. I'm giving myself a D+...Some of the missed workouts weren't really my fault but I could have been better about making them up. It's not that I'm not motivated, but the summer heat and the freedom I have to stay up late and sleep in make it really hard to follow through.
At least we had a good weekend. Matt had a race and got to do a SUP clinic with his paddling idol. We saw my dad and his for Father's Day, and both my brother and sister were in town so I got to see the whole family.
|We got a little more exercise after dinner walking my parents' dog. He was very interested in the deer.|
This week I'm going to focus on getting to bed earlier and scheduling workouts ahead of time so I know what I want to accomplish and don't feel as free to back out.
How was your weekend?
