>Week in review, May 30-June 5

>Here’s a snip of my training for the week…

Wednesday, I did a 3-mi interval run and then BodyFlow.. Friday was the 10-mile bike at the gym. Tomorrow I hope to tag on another 8 miles from an early-morning run.

I can feel myself getting faster, but the work that goes into becoming faster is tough. Sometimes I would rather run 10 miles at a comfortable pace than run 3 or 4 at a hard pace. Does that make me a long-distance runner? I’m not sure, but that’s what I would call myself.

Adjusting to the heat and humidity is something I haven’t quite figured out yet. Last summer I wasn’t ever running this much per week… maybe a max of ten miles in seven days. Sometimes I’d rather run in sub-freezing temps.

Anyway… I don’t really have a set training plan for this month. I want to keep doing one interval run, one tempo run and one long distance run every week, and two days of cross-training (per Run Less, Run Faster). I also want to swim a little more if time allows.

Here’s to another happy and healthy week, complete with spending time with friends, swimming, relaxing, Glee-ing, and we are one more week closer to my husband coming home.

Oh, and don’t forget to join me in prayer and fasting for Carson this Tuesday!

  1. >I hear ya' on preferring cooler temps for running. For me, it takes some adjusting of meal times and more frequent shorter runs at first. After a couple of weeks though I'm well adjusted and simply have to battle dehydration for the next 4 months. Best of luck adjusting!
