Last week was an off week for me - meaning, all my plan said was to do 4 30-minute runs. GREAT timing because my husband was out of town for most of last week which meant having to be a weekend warrior of sorts to get four runs in.
My runs last week also put my May 2016 mileage over May 2015 mileage!
All in all, I enjoyed just running last week. I listened to this ROO podcast over the course of two of my runs, which was nice. Julia and Lauren have such soothing voices!
I did have trouble relaxing and running slow for my runs though. I pushed the pace too much which was fine but I know the value of running easy over the long term and sure enough last night's run my hip/butt was sore.
This week kick's off my summer 5K training which is a lot of track work. I have also figured out my summer race schedule! I will be racing the 5K on the following dates:
My fall will be a transition to longer distances. I have an 8K on September 16 and am eyeing a local half-marathon on 11/6.
