So sorry this post is late! I’m coming off of a really awesome birthday weekend where I traveled to Orlando. I didn’t get back until 5 pm last night and was honestly so exhausted (and maybe a little depressed that vacation was over) so I didn’t feel like posting.
Anyway, here’s what my training looked like this past week!
Sunday 8/16: Rest day
Monday 8/17: 3.1 miles with my training group at the downtown Fit2Run store. Real feel temperature was 109 degrees. Yes, I said 109.
Tuesday 8/18: 2.1 miles of speedwork. I was supposed to do the 3-2-1 fartlek sessions, but unfortunately my app wasn’t working well so I just turned it into a tempo run. Ended up with a 9:41 pace though. (Note to self: when taking selfies, perfect the art of timing on the phone. So you don’t cut of your own head in the shot. At least I got my super awesome new Pro socks though!)
Wednesday 8/19: rest day and I worked today.
Thursday 8/20: I was planning on going out, but thunder and lightning put an end to my party.
Friday 8/21: 3.1 miles of hill sprints today! Sprinted up hill for a minute then jogged around the trail and back down the hill. Did 4 of these. I felt like a badass until I realized the bugs bit me through my socks. Next time bring bug spray. At least I earned my birthday dinner!
Saturday 8/22: 5.37 miles of walking around Universal Studios with my BRF Krystal and another friend Allison + the bf for my birthday! It was really an awesome day!
On another note, today I received notice of an offer of epic proportions. Are you ready for this?
RunDisney announced that they are bringing Star Wars to the East Coast! I KNEW there was a reason I didn’t register for the Disneyland Star Wars race! I’m so beyond excited about this- I want to jump up and down and scream (but I live in an apartment so I won’t). I can’t believe I will get the opportunity to run with WOOKIES! If you haven’t heard me talk about them- wookies are my favorite. And Vader. I like him too. Anyway, you can read all about it here, and then check out the website here. I plan to be on my computer at noon on September 22nd to register (even if it means going on a Ramen noodle diet to be able to pay for it haha).
How’s your training going? What’s your dream race? Are you totally geeking out over Star Wars like me? 😉
