Today is the first weekday of summer vacation and not having to wake up to an alarm was glorious!
Of course I slept in until a whopping 6:30 a.m., but hey, that’s a whole hour later than when I got up for school!
I got my Monday morning started with a run! My marathon is quickly approaching, so no time for slacking!
I prefer running on an empty (or nearly empty) stomach, so I just had 3 Clif Shot Bloks before leaving. (There are 6 bloks in the package.)
I decided to do a tempo run today. I chose an “out and back” route and ran out “easy” (at my normal pace) and then came back “hard.”
Distance: 9 miles
4.5 miles – 38 minutes (8:30 minutes/mile)
4.5 miles – 35 minutes (7:30 minutes/ mile)
Breakfast was a delicious bowl of oatmeal and iced coffee.
If I have hot oatmeal, I want iced coffee! (And if I am having overnight (cold) oatmeal, I want hot coffee.)
A recap of my runs for May 16 – 22
Monday: 6 miles
Tuesday: 5 miles
Wednesday: 5 miles
Thursday: 7 miles
Friday: 4 miles + 30 minutes of weight lifting
Saturday: 12 miles + 90 minutes of yoga
Total: 39 miles
Time for a shower and some normal clothes. Yeah! No more athletic clothes.
