Look, I'm getting "Nuun-tattooed"! Thanks Holly!
So, last week. It happened. I completed a lot of workouts. But I also rested a lot of days. Resulting in a weird combination of many "double-days" and also many "do nothing" days. I don't call that a win.
Monday - One of the "do nothing" days
Tuesday - 8 miles (my longest run since the marathon, if you can believe it!) of trail running. It was lovely, but I was a sweaty mess by the end.
1,268 feet of elevation gain in 8 miles - not too shabby!
Wednesday - A "triathlon" day! That's right, I ended up not only doing a double but a triple workout. Jordanne and I were supposed to practice "open water" swimming, but instead we went to the pool. FAIL. We suck. After a mile of swimming (40 minutes), JMan and I had a lovely dinner at 5 Guys. But then I decided to take to the bike for 15+ miles and an hour. THEN I decided why not do a little "legs feel like bricks" post-cycling running and did 2 miles of running. WHEW.
On Wednesday I had these gorgeous flowers waiting to surprise me. Isn't JMan the best?!
Thursday - Whoops, another "do nothing" day
Friday - 5 miles of running in the morning, 1 mile of swimming in the evening
Saturday - 9 miles of running (NOW this is my longest run since the marathon!). I wanted it to be 10-12 but my glute was not having it. It has been displeased since Ragnar.
Sunday - All I did besides "do nothing" was pick about 10 pounds of blackberries
And there you have it folks.
Total running miles = 24.
This week: less "do nothing" days. A run longer than 9 miles. More than 24 total miles. Get 'er done.
How was your week? Do you pick blackberries? It seems early for them, but I can't wait to make some freezer jam! What's your favorite berry? How was your weekend?
