It’s time for Marathon Monday again!
Last week was a tough week. My legs and feet were quite fatigued after the speed/5 by the 5th 5k session on Tuesday. I was also really tired and made it a point to get to bed earlier each night there after. By Saturday, everything was feeling better for my 20 miler.
Watch the vlog for all the details and my special treat to myself for finishing!
Here’s how the week looked:
Sunday: Easy 5 miles + yoga
Monday: 60 minute bike trainer + total body strength and core
Tuesday: 7 miles total. 5k as part of 5 by the 5th + 2 miles speed @ 7:26 and core
Wednesday: 50 minute bike trainer + total body strength and core
Thursday: Easy 5 miles + yoga and core
Saturday: 20 miles + gentle yoga
Amanda (aka Miss Zippy) came up with a great idea for a #BestRun link up.
I’m always willing to talk about running and I love reading other runners stories. When I was trying to think about some of my best runs there seems to always be a central theme. Any run that I can do by or near water makes for a great one. It’s no surprise that a lot of the races I choose to do locally have a portion by the water. Also sunrises. Nothing makes me more happy than seeing the sun come up on a run especially during the summer. I love how the sky lights up. A run can instantly become better once that happens.
A race day PR. A trail run. Running on the treadmill (Hmmm…maybe some days on the treadmill). Running with friends. Running with a legend. Freezing my a$$ off in the frigid temps and swearing the whole time. Coming back from an injury.
What’s your #BestRun?
