This was the weather widget on my phone after my run, yeah I ran in this:
Even with 100+ temperatures, I knocked out 3 miles holding a 9:18 pace. Pretty proud of this run.
Weekly Recap 6/1/14 - 6/7/14
Sunday 6/1/14 - Rest Day
Day before was an 11.5 trail run and my ankles and legs were wrecked. Really needed the day off.
Monday 6/2/14 - Rest Day
Took a second day off. I'm really liking these long runs in my plan because it gives me a lot of flexibility with my weekly runs as I build up more mileage.
Tuesday 6/3/14 - 3 Mile Road Run
Plan was to hit the trail before work but I felt a cold coming on so decided to sleep in. That extra rest really helped. So after work I did a light jog for 3 miles.
Wednesday 6/4/14 - 3 Mile Road Run
National Running Day fun run at our local running store. It was hot out but running with the lead pack I was able to hold a 7:57 pace.
Thursday 6/5/14 - 4.25 Mile Road Run
Recovery run in the evening so I was able to throw in a couple more miles.
Friday 6/6/14 - Rest Day
Great date night with Mrs Schlub plus I knew I was having a long run the next day so I needed the day off to legs my legs rest up.
Saturday 6/7/14 - 10 Mile Trail Run
Epic trail run, going to keep ramping up the trail runs as we get ready for our marathon in February. With the elevation and terrain I should be more than prepared for the marathon.
Total - 20.25 miles
These last two weeks the trend has been 4 running days and 3 rest days, how many rest days do you have factored into your training plan right now??
Hello, thank you for joining me along my journey of becoming a Runner! I've always been an active guy, played sports in high school and continued into adult recreation sports after high school. As I started my family and found a career, the activity level slowly decreased. Well my Fiance had enough of our lazy ways and started on the Weight Watchers program and completely overhauled our daily meals. Step 2 was getting more active, so we decided to JOG our annual Juvenile Diabetes charity walk and actually enjoyed the activity. The month following the charity walk, we signed up for our first official 5K and had an absolute blast. From that point forward I have officially been BIT by the running bug and this is my journey to becoming a RUNNER!
