Footprints: Midweek Recap

Well, my regular Monday morning recap is way late this week. I flew straight from a fun wedding in Syracuse last weekend to my company’s annual convention in San Diego. It was a great week, but I didn’t have a second of free time to post to my blog. I was so tired each night I actually didn’t even open my laptop to check if there was free wi-fi in the hotel room! My training definitely suffered from it, but this is last week’s recap, and last week was pretty great so I’m going to focus on that!

Here’s the day by day breakdown…

Monday: Strength workout: core and upper body

Tuesday: Rest Day

Wednesday: I continued with my weekly runs home from work today and had my best yet. I put in 10.11 hilly miles in 87 minutes. It really is the tale of the temperatures when it comes to these weekly runs. Two weeks ago I barely made it for 9 miles in 90 minutes in 102 degrees temps and last week I did 10 miles in 90 minutes at 92 degrees.

Thursday: Rest Day – didn’t make it out before work and then hopped right in a car for the late night drive up to Syracuse arriving after 2 a.m.


Friday: I hit up memory lane heading to my old high school to get in a track workout. It was 60s and breezy early Friday morning and could not have been a more perfect morning for it. I did 6X800 at interval pace with a 3-minute recovery jog between each rep. My splits were: 3: 23, 3:21, 3:22, 3:19, 3:22, 3:18.

Saturday: I got my long run in at the beautiful state park I used to work at during college. One thing I’d forgotten about Green Lakes – holy hills! I had a great run though getting 17.17 miles in!

Sunday: I’d call this a rest day since I didn’t work out, but since it involved getting up at 4:15 eastern time to catch a flight across the country, going straight to work without checking into my hotel, walking more than 10,000 steps according to my Nike fuel band, not leaving the staff office until after 10 pacific time and being awake for 22 hours I don’t think it was really a rest day. The kicker…I had to be up at 4:15 again the next morning! Ouch!
