If I didn’t know better I would say it’s August. This entire week has been at least 90 degrees with high humidity and therefore, all of my workouts, (except for my long run) were inside. As I walked outside yesterday morning at 5:30 a.m. for my run I just laughed because of the heat. Florida just hasn’t gotten the “fall” memo quite yet. But I will say, a lot of my sweat came from hot yoga so I can’t blame the weather for everything!
Monday: 5 miles + Hot Vinyasa Flow. I didn’t work in the afternoon and I took advantage of my free time. Honestly, not working and going to yoga made me so happy. Unfortunately work is kind of necessary so it’ll be back to normal next week.
Tuesday: Rest. I planned on going to 6 a.m. yoga but I had a meeting the night before that lasted until 11:45. Needless to say I did not set a 5:30 alarm! Sleep > most everything else
Wednesday: 7 miles in the morning + Spin at night. I ran my 7 miles at around an 8:40 min/mile pace. I posted my spin playlist from this past week, but overall it was a great class. As usual, I used it as more of a recovery ride.
Thursday: 5 miles. 1.5 mile warm-up, 3 rounds of 800 repeats/800 recovery, .5 mile cool down. I had to be on campus by 8 a.m. and the gym doesn’t open until 6, so doing a random speed workout fit well with my schedule.
Friday: Hot Vinyasa Flow
Saturday: 17.5 miles. I had 18 on my schedule but had to go to the bathroom at 17.5 so I called it quits then ;) I cannot explain how sweaty and smelly I was after this run. I felt like I had jumped in a pool! I went into the grocery store after and got a lot of weird stares haha. Averaged about 9:10 pace but I’m not too concerned about speed. My hamstrings did feel really tight and I wish I had time for a massage. Foam rolling will have to do.
Sunday: Rest. My Sunday is too busy for my liking but I hope to get some stretching in while watching football (planned my obligations around the Eagles game…true fan).
