Workouts: Week 7

Source: pindar.info via Lauren on Pinterest

Cannot believe I'm already on week 7!  It seems like I just started this a few days ago.

This past week was a good one.  I had my first long run (defined by me as being over 6 miles) and I felt pretty good!

Monday: Off.  It was a holiday.  I went to the pool :)
Tuesday: 6 miles
Wednesday: Off
Thursday:  4 miles and weights
Friday: 5 miles - For some reason this was one of the hardest runs I've ever done.  I don't know if it is the weight training from the day before or the crazy humidity, but I was struggling like crazy.
Saturday: Off
Sunday:  7.25 miles - I was planning on going farther, but I slept in and the direct sunlight of my 11am start was making me dizzy so I called it quits a little early.

Total:  22.25 Miles

I'll take it.  I reached my goals, learned a few lessons (ahem, not sleeping in until 10am on the day of a long run in the NC summer heat), and am still feeling great!  My foot rarely bothers me anymore.  I never went to the doctor, so I still have no idea what it was, but hopefully that pain is gone for good.  I also am continuing to learn to listen to my body.  After that crazy, awful 5 mile run on Friday I took Saturday to rest.  I made sure to drink a ton of water and was conscious about getting off my legs when it wasn't necessary.  By Saturday I was feeling great again, but I still waited until Sunday for the big run.

One more week closer!  My summer schedule will start getting busy right about now so I will really have to work to keep my miles up.  I have swim meets the next 3 weekends.  One of them is a 5 day trip with the team...we will have to see how that goes...

Happy Monday everyone!
