8 Yasso's is tough.
My sets were: 3:18, 3:18, 3:21, 3:27, 3:28, 3:23, 3:31, 3:18
I definitely slowed down this week compared to last week, and it felt so much more difficult. Weird. It's so funny (read= annoying) how you end up in a funk some days.
After we did our cool down I came home and hopped in the car to get some much needed groceries. I refused to go over my budget for last month, which means I hadn't been to the grocery store in over a week. We were out of everything- including (but not limited to):
- soy milk
After running my guts out, you can imagine what my workout clothes looked like. Yikes. Even the coupon machine knew I stunk-
Next time my kids might just have to go without milk at breakfast until I can shower.
I always look forward to the end of the month when I can review my stats and see how far I've come. Remember how I made the goal to bump my average speed up to 7 MPH? Well...
DISTANCE: 123.23 mi
TIME: 17:28:55 hh:mm:ss
ELEVATION GAIN: 4,902
AVG SPEED: 7.0
AVG HR: 172
MAX DISTANCE: 17.04
AVG DISTANCE: 7.70 mi
Right on the money, baby! This was also the month with the most miles for me (although, only by a few). I really love my training schedule. Although I'm training for a marathon, I'm not overwhelmed with the sheer amount of miles I have to run every week. With my schedule, I still only run right around 30 miles- which is perfect for my body. I am going to talk about my schedule in a later post this week since I've had a few people ask me about it.
Overall, July has been good to me. I've felt great, and I've really enjoyed myself out there on the road. How has it been for you? Any new goals accomplished or PR's set?
