Well, we’re finally getting back on track, folks. Hello, marathon training.
Monday: 3 miles
My gym is still down for the rest of the week and I woke up to thunderstorms (typical Monday morning), which is not ideal running conditions. I decided to head to the LA Fitness a few towns over to run after work. Not a shabby start to the week.
Wednesday: 6 miles
Logged these miles (again) on the #dreadmill. It was pretty exhausting and I needed to take some walk breaks, but I finished. Thanks God for that.
I had intended to go to the gym after work, but my boyfriend and I got caught up helping set up for his nephew’s first birthday.
Saturday: 8 miles!
Hello long run! Very, very HOT long run! This was brutal. I got out around 8, which was much earlier than last week but still not early enough. It started getting reaaalllly warm around mile 4 and by mike 6 I made a pitstop at home to grab a water bottle for the last few miles. The heat is no joke. How do you train in the sweltering temps?! Really. I’m all ears.
My boyfriend decided he had to order a basketball mid-week last week so we tried it out at the park. I’ve definitely lost my touch from high school. I think it’s safe to say I’ll stick to running.
Oh, and in other exciting news: I GOT NEW RUNNING SHOES. I’ve wanted them for a while but kept procrastinating (they’re so expensive and I didn’t want to drop $100 on shoes — clearly I’m not like most girls).
