Another recovery week in the books. My goal was to do about the same amount of miles as last week - 20ish. I just hit the 20 mile mark.

I slept through my alarm so no running that morning. I went to see Sheryl Sandburg on her Option B book tour with my mom that evening so it ended up being a rest day.
Tuesday, Jun 6
Again, slept through alarm so did some miles before my daughter got off the bus. This was my last "bus run" until the next school year!
3.52 miles, 26:54 (7:38 avg pace)

No morning run...again. Wednesday I have after-school care for the kids so I did my run after work. I ended up ALMOST stepping on a turtle on the run path near a pond. I was so excited that I picked up the kids and we stopped by the pond on the way home to see if she was still there - my son caught her bustin' a move from the path into the water. Score!
5.01 miles, 37:21 (7:28 avg pace)

EARLY RUN! Success. My only early run of the week. The cool air felt so good. AGAIN, I encountered a turtle on my run, albeit a MUCH larger one.
4.6 miles, 36:20 (7:54 avg pace)
Friday, June 9
Off day. I had an early morning eye doctor appointment and it was the last day of school!
Saturday, June 10
My kids participated in the Walleye Run in my hometown. They had a blast and my daughter ended up getting in the top 10 for girls. My son just missed last place. :) It was a hot weekend here in Wisco - temps were in the 90s both days. I ended up doing a short run after the kids were in bed.
3.26 miles, 24:28 (7:30 avg pace)
Sunday, June 11
My kids ended up sleeping in and so did we. It was glorious. (Sleeping in for us is 6:45am). I again ran when they were in bed. While I haven't really pushed the pace during these recovery weeks, I wanted to see if I could run fast so after a mile, I pushed to get 2 sub-7 miles in before a mile cool down. I think I might be ready to move out of the recovery zone.
4 miles, 28:07 (7:01 avg pace)
Total Weekly Miles: 20.4 miles
I am still getting to bed way too late. As evidence by the fact that I am sleeping through all of my alarms. I am a little shy of the 8 hour mark, although I made some improvements from last week.
