I just read Jenny’s post and agree with her wholeheartedly that this past week was one of the absolute worst, weather-wise, in recent memory.
And then we went even further south, which — as one can imagine — was not any better!
But it’s over and we have some amazing-looking weather coming up. I very much hope it comes to fruition!
And, it’s 8 weeks until race day!!
M: 10 mi @ 9:25/mi, felt good + decent weather. I was happy my legs were doing okay post Saturday’s 20.
T: 9.5 mi with 6 x 20s strides.
W: This is when the heat wave started. Group run with 2 running friends – 9.5 mi at 9:27/mi ave, 20 min glute/legs (Selena Samuela / Peloton) and 20 min mobility (Andy Speer / Peloton)
R: Treadmill hill workout – which I usually dread but was super happy to not have to be outside! 3 mi warmup (that part outside) + 10 x 1 min hills (7 mph / 4 %) with 90 seconds jog recovery, 2 mi cooldown. 7.5 mi total
F: 7.77 mi @ 10:15/mi. 82F and “feels like” 91, ugh.
S: 14.3 miles @ 9:43/mi in Key Largo. Over 80F and super humid. I started off really slow, worrying about overheating but finished a bit under 9 min pace feeling okay. I did stop to drink water x3 plus gels x 3.
S: will be barre/yoga
Total: 58.7 mi / strength x 1
Metathon’s highly optimistic prediction:
I am not going to trust it nor will I go out that fast. But it’s fun to see the numbers improve. I also found Runalyze which predicts 3:37 which is likely closer to reality (and would still be absolutely amazing, my old PR is 3:48!).
I have 0 pictures from the Keys because my phone camera died (filled with condensation, for which I blame FL summer). I gave up with my attempts to dry it out with rice and ordered a new one. Pink iPhone 15 coming today – yay!
