Week 8: Back into my training grooveLeave a comment
July 22, 2013 by Amy B
Since I just spent the morning finishing the novel on the half mara recap, let’s just say I woke up early to put in an easy four miler with some strides thrown in at the end.
Now that my two crazy weeks of races are over, it’s back to the regular training grind. No fudging the miles anymore during the week to compensate for a weekend race!
I’m feeling pretty good post-race/recovery day. The mileage really starts to ramp up, which is fine. I always struggle a bit with fitting everything in. When the mid-week run gets to 7 miles (like it does tomorrow), fitting in two runners’ workouts before work gets to be a challenge.
Scott’s back is jacked, so I might not have to compete with him tomorrow morning for running time. I’ve just decided I’m a morning runner. Evenings are too difficult and it’s too damn hot out at night.
