Thank you for all of Hank’s birthday wishes yesterday! I promise I passed each one of them along to him. He loves when I talk to him, so there was a lot of tail wagging. Hank enjoyed an evening game of birthday fetch in the backyard, and then he and Scout got to have puppy ice creams on the back deck. Pretty rad birthday if I do say so myself.
This past week was on the lighter side, mileage-wise. But I guess it’s a good idea to back off a bit after having two challenging races on back-to-back weekends. This week I am three weeks out from the Conquer the Cove 25K trail race. If all goes as planned, I will do two of my weekday runs on trails, and do a longer trail run on Saturday morning.
Monday- Rest day. This was a planned rest day, after racing on Saturday and running with Kim on Sunday. Then I also worked until 8 PM, so it was a definite rest day.
Tuesday- 5 mile treadmill run. Sven (the treadmill, if you’re new around here) and I got in a fight because he would not stop making a squeaking noise. Barry and I could not locate the noise, so Sven is in the doghouse until further notice.
Wednesday- Rest day.
Thursday- 3 mile run on the roads around our house. I didn’t feel all that great on this run. It was in the mid-80’s outside and I think the heat kind of zapped my energy.
Friday- 8 mile long run on trails at Pandaps Pond. I decided to get my long run in before the weekend, since we had weekend travel plans. It worked out well, since I had a short workday, although it was very hot since I was running mid-afternoon.
Saturday- Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred, level 1 workout. I snuck this workout in when I got up in the morning, before we hit the road for the rodeo. The dogs were very tired from watching me work out, and had to sleep the whole way to the campground.
They have odd ways of sleeping in the truck…
Total Miles: 16 miles
