Another week, another workout recap. This was my last full week of workouts at home before I leave for school and I took full advantage of my favorite places to run/workout/eat.
Monday: Started my parade of favorite places with a 4.5 mile run on Bayshore. This is my favorite (x100) place to run and I feel so “at home” here. Bayshore is just over 4 miles of continuous sidewalk along the bay (with water fountains along the path!). Running with the sun rise and this view is the best way to start the day.
Wednesday: 7.25 miles. I ran around my house for the first 2 and decided it was way too hot to continue. I went to the gym and did a “ladder” run on the treadmill to work in some speed. 400-800-1600-800-400 with somewhat equal distance of recovery in between.
Thursday: 4 miles + weights. Woah, weights haven’t happened in way too long (excluding the occasional Body Pump). Nothing really serious, just 3 x 12 of biceps, triceps and shoulders. Weights WILL be making a return…hopefully.
Friday: Flow 2 yoga with one of my favorite teachers. I went to yoga and then lunch (at one of my favorite restaurants) with my mom! I’m sure going to miss those dates with her.
Saturday: 14 miles. Not going to lie, I was dreading this run. I was nervous because last week’s 11 miles was hard for me…especially with the heat. But the run ended up going really well and I felt strong the entire time. I drove to Bayshore to run instead of staying around my neighborhood and I’m SO glad I did. The change of scenery and frequent water fountains helped a lot. 2 hours even for 14 miles at pretty much the pace I was aiming for :) I also came fully prepared with a banana, coconut water, regular water and a towel for after my run. Taking cues from last week’s mistakes and hydrating properly. Also, post-run watermelon is a must.

That’s all for now! I think I said “favorite” too many times in this post…
Happy Sunday! xo
