We had a fairly calm weekend compared to what they’ve been recently. I didn’t have anywhere I had to be on Saturday except to run. I got 7 miles in, struggled, but it got done. Caught the last half of Ally’s softball practice, caught up on laundry and a little cleaning. Ally decided to clean out her closet and we did a little shopping. We didn’t have much luck finding her anything.
Mellow Mushroom finally opened here and we decided to meet some friends for dinner. We got there at 5 and we finally got dinner about 8. We were there for 4 hours. It was fun hanging out with friends, but we will wait a few weeks for things to settle down before we go back.
Ally’s last softball game is tonight. We’ve had a fun season, some wins, some losses but it’s a great group of girls and parents!
School is out Thursday morning, just have to stay for the awards at 9:30. Have I told you how ready I am for school to be out? Going to fully enjoy this summer. We have a few things that need to be done around the house, but definitely planning lots of fun stuff on my days off. I’m going to church camp with Ally in July. It’s her last year at pre-teen camp. She starts in the youth group next week.
It’s been a while since we’ve talked goals. I’m still hard at work (most days) but I like to re-examine them periodically.
- Water. I got really dehydrated at my half last week so I’m drinking water like it’s my job!
- Mileage, it’s climbing and except for adjusting to the temperatures I’m handling it well. I love track workouts!
- Strength training. Still going to the gym 1-2 times a week. Our running club moved locations and now we meet in the same parking lot as my gym so I may be able to head over there after running.
- Half marathon goals. I did not hit my 1:50 goal last week, I came real close. So, now I need to decide what goal to work for the Fall.
Training last week:
Sunday: Rest day
Monday: Patriot half marathon (recap here)
Tuesday: Rest day
Wednesday: rest day
Thursday: 6 miles
Friday: Rest day
Saturday: 7 miles
Pace was not great this week. I’m going easy on myself for that because of the race and the temps/humidity. But going forward my goal will be to get my pace down. I know it will take hard work and I have to stay on top of my hydration to be successful.
I don’t have a race until October as of now, so I have plenty of time to just focus on the work.
Did you workout today?
Have you made new goals?
When is your next race?
Let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. Hebrews 12:1
