This week was the first time in a while I hit 40 miles, woo! It was a busy week and a hot one. I always need to remind myself in the summer to cut myself some slack. Heat adds time to your normal paces, so give yourself a break. Don’t feel like a failure when you can’t hit the splits assigned by your coach on a super hot day, because you aren’t a failure!!
Here is what my week looked like.
Monday: rest day, my favorite!
Friday: 6.4 mile tempo – 4 miles at lactate threshold (6:40-7:05). Actual splits 6:42, 6:51, 6:56, 7:14 – died in the last mile. It was 80% humidity and I thought I was going to pass out. I followed it with some planks, hydrants and bridges and foam rolling!
2017 – 909.15
Have a great week! Anyone have fun plans for the 4th?!
