It’s Monday morning, boooo! I’m enjoying a cup of hot coffee, yay!
It feels okay to be drinking hot coffee instead of iced coffee. It just feels wrong to drink hot coffee when it’s already 80* at 6am.
Sunday after my long run, I did pretty much what I do every weekend after a long run.
I laid on the couch and watched bad TV & read blogs. Chris finally came home later in the afternoon and we decided we would ride down to Shoot Straight in Tampa. Shoot Straight is a gun range/gun store; Chris is ready to a new gun so we are scoping out the stores to see what kind of deals we can get. – I actually liked this place because I was able to hold the guns & feel the triggers. At Gander Mountain & Bass Pro Shop they have trigger locks, that they won’t take off(which I understand), but you can’t feel the trigger.
Enough about guns. Some people are probably immensely uncomfortable with the gun talk.
Oh, go over to Cait’s blog, Beyond-Bananas, and congratulate her on an awesome first half marathon. Home girl finished in 1:49:15, holy crap! She owned her first half marathon!
Let’s recap September, shall we:
Days ran: 13
Days slacked: all the other days I didn’t run
Total miles: 75 — That’s the highest mileage I’ve had since February, which was the month before my last half-marathon.
I didn’t really keep track of how many days I cross-trained, but it’s significantly less than previous months. I forget, or just don’t make time, to cross-train when I’m heavy into half-marathon training.
Last week, which was partly in September & partly in October I managed to get in 25 miles.
Monday – lazy
Wednesday – 6mi
Thursday –3 mi
Friday – rest day..again
Saturday – 6.2
Sunday – 10
That’s the highest mileage week I’ve had….. since forever. I rarely make it up to 25 mile weeks, which is super lame, but the truth.
Monday – 4mi (easy pace)
Tuesday – XT / Rest
Wednesday – 6mi (easy pace)
Thursday – 5mi @ 8:45 pace
Friday – 4mi (easy pace)
Saturday – 11 mi
Sunday – maybe a short shake out run. We will be in Cocoa Beach, so maybe I can convince my sister to run with me (Ahem, Stacey?!)
Total forecasted miles: 30 This will be a miracle if it actually happens. I don’t think I’ve ever run a 30 mile week. The temperatures this week are looking better than last week. The highs are in the upper 80’s and the lows are in the 60’s with very little humidity. So, when I run in the evenings it will be 80, not 96.
What’s on your schedule this week? Work outs, fun events, or anything ??
