This was a pretty hectic week but a great training one. I started off Monday getting in my long run I missed during the previous week and ended the week at FitBloggin’13 in Portland fitting in 6 workouts in 2 days! I had so much fun and wish I could do this every weekend!
Here’s the day by day breakdown…
Monday: Monday was really hot but unfortunately I wasn’t able to get my long run in early so instead I went during the hottest times of the day splitting my runs into 2 1-hour stints at lunch and just after work. I got 6.5 miles in around Hains Point during lunch and looped the opposite way plus over the Memorial Bridge back home for 7 miles after work.
Tuesday: Tonight I ran a 5k put on by the DC Road Runners. Check out the full recap.
Wednesday: Rest Day – although since it was moving day I think I got in a fair amount of cross training with all the lifting and walking up and down stairs I did in 90+ degree heat.
Thursday: Travel Day – flew out to Portland.
Friday: I started off with an early morning boot camp class, then hit the streets of Portland for a 20-minute tempo run and rushed back to the hotel for a Reebok cardio dance class…my kind of day!
Saturday: It was another early morning with some 6 a.m. SweatPink yoga, a 5-mile run along the water and a trampoline fitness class! Can you tell I enjoyed this one???
Sunday: I woke up bright and early one more time – staying on east coast time really helped me this weekend – and got in a 2 hour long run looping around the Portland waterfront area and bridges.
Ah, sounds wonderful! I used to live in Portland and SO miss running on that waterfront. Hope you had nice weather!
It was a really nice running route and I loved the restaurants here! The weather was great for my run since I got out really early, but man has the rest of the weekend been hot…think I brought the D.C. heat and humidity with me. It’s been 90s and muggy everyday! Great trip though!
Oh yeah, I heard there was a strange heat wave! Crazy.
