Aka "Yay for Cutback weeks"
I also did 3 strength training sessions.
Monday Easy 5
CB started watching "DogTV." I'm convinced people on drugs would also like this new channel.
Tuesday Easy 8 with 6x 20 second hills
CB got treats from the Fido to Go Truck!
Averaged around 8 minutes a mile for this workout and felt fantastic. Would have done it Wednesday, but every other Wednesday I sometimes (most of the time) have to stay very late.
Worked from 8am to 8pm. Yay work.
Thursday Easy 5
Friday Easy 6
CB ordered pizza!
Saturday Easy 12
Averaged 9 minutes a mile for this easy run. I was super happy to run some of the miles with L. It was hot but I felt good. CB joined us for coffee post run. L ran 12 miles for his Chicago Marathon training.
Saturday we both had much needed massages.
For lunch we went to "Slurping Turtle." So delicious!
I had a pork ramen and a Bloody Mary. Why yes that's a beef stick straw in there...
Ate and drank all the yummy things.
Went to Dry Hop for lunch and beer. Laid out in the sun for 40 minutes while drinking Stiegl Grapefruit Radler and then grilled burgers and veggies in the rain for dinner.
It was another solid week to put in the books. I'm feeling stronger and stronger and just so freaking happy to not be showing any sign of overtraining or injury. (Thank you Myo ball and racquetball)
This might just be my new favorite treat ever! I'm already a sucker for anything "passion fruit" YUM
I'm looking forward to week 9 and ramping up intensity/mileage again. This week left me craving more runs.
41 DAYS TO GO!!!!!
