: 7.5 easy miles with Matilda (the dog)Tuesday
: 9 miles with 6 miles at goal marathon pace at the CBRCWednesday: 4 miles with Matilda, then a 60 minute barre class at The Barre with my friend Susie. She is still rocking the barre classes with two babies in her belly!
: 7 miles easyFriday
: complete restSaturday
: 19 mile long run. Pretty uneventful, though I did take three Hammer Gels vs. the normal two I carry on long runs. It was an unseasonably warm Saturday, but TCM runners need not despair- the forecast looks much cooler for next weekend. After some breakfast and recovering post-run, we packed up our bags and went camping. I’ll share more about it on Tilda Tuesday, but it did involve a lot of hiking.
: 4 miles easy with Matilda. It was pretty hot (mid-80’s) by the time I ran. Tilda seemed pretty tired, so we actually walked a bit. I heeded my advice for running with your dog in the heat, and let her walk when she wanted and we took lots of water breaks.Summary:
I hit just about 50 miles of running this week, with 1 complete rest day, and 1 barre class. It was a “cut-back” week in terms of workout intensity, but the miles were still high (for me). This week will be harder workouts, with hills tomorrow and another speed workout on Thursday.What’s happening in fitness fashion this week?
Thursday night, I attended a “Mental Toughness for Marathoners” seminar at TC Running Company in Eden Prairie. I will share a recap of that seminar later this week, but let’s talk first about fitness fashion! While I was at TC Running Company, I did a little browsing, and ended up buying this Oiselle Scantron Tank in fresh green (what looks like yellow to me)
