I can’t believe the first two weeks of our vacation are over! It’s going by so quickly, but it’s been great to have the time to relax and unwind after a really busy work season! Hopefully one day we’ll figure out how to move up here!
Monday – 3 mile easy run
Tuesday – rest day
Wednesday – pushed run to Thursday morning because of thunderstorms
Thursday – 5 mile tempo run (Smart Coach goal was 1 mile warm up, 3 miles @ 9:23, 1 mile cool down)
Actual Times: Mile 1, 11:05 / Mile 2, 9:42 / Mile 3, 9:30 / Mile 4, 9:26 / Mile 5, 11:30
**didn’t get to the 9:23 pace, at least it went down instead of up over the 3 miles
Friday – rest day
Saturday – 8.5 miles LSD (long slow distance), I was aiming for an 11 min/mile pace, but my Garmin was dead when I headed out so I had some trouble monitoring my pace, I ended up closer around 10:25 min/mile
Sunday – SUP @ the beach!
Overall – Got in all my runs and actually started to use my heart rate monitor! I miss doing yoga, I could really use it this week too since my back has been bothering me (Note to my tempurpedic mattress: I MISS YOU!)
NEXT WEEK (7/23-29)
Only one more week at the beach! Going to try to find some new paths for my runs and my cousin and I are planning on going to beach yoga tomorrow morning!
I also saw that the Cape Cod Marathon and Half Marathon are the last weekend in October and I’m seriously thinking about registering for one of them. A large portion of the race is along the coast and it looks gorgeous!
QUOTE OF THE WEEK –
“Life is not a race. Neither is an ultramarathon, not really, even though it looks like one. There is no finish line. We strive towards a goal, and whether we achieve it or not is important, but it’s not what’s most important. What matters is how we move towards that goal.” – Scott Jurek, from his book EAT & RUN
