Happy Wednesday Hip Huggers!
Hump Trash Day!
Oops. My bad.
I have been doing lots of eating garbage this last week and a half
that my hubby has been on vacation.
But, he’s returned and things will get back to normal
starting with some quick pre
blog run food…
Carb. Protein. Fat…oh
***Quick recap of the weekend***
Saturday: 3 Miles
I ran an ‘Out and Back’ Saturday just to keep my legs moving since
I had run 8 miles the day before AND, had a 6 mile run planned the next day.
My calves were
trash definitely sore and tight, but I did ok.
Sunday: 6 Miles
My running buddy overslept, so I
talked to myself hit the pavement solo.
I really appreciated the nice and quiet morning. I amost missed the sunrise…
But I made it out on time. I decided to run the park, so it was
lots of loops which I hate. But, it was
money mileage over everything, so
I got in
where what I could fit in…
Hmm, a bit slower than I planned, but DONE!! I still treated myself
to a delish smoothie while recovering… I earned it!
Monday was a rest day, so I picked up running Tuesday
with a 3 mile Tempo run at the track. Hubby joined in, too!
We went around 8pm, which was already weird because
I don’t like running evenings.
And though dusk, it was still 90 degrees and humid.
Even so, I tried to stay near the 10:30 pace,
trash not that fast. That pace just did not happen.
I DID pick up the pace at the end, which made it a tempo run fail.
But I think my mental game is keeping my short runs
this summer under 11 minutes and my long runs under 12.
Winning at that!
Any Either way, 3 miles done and done.
***And I’m at juuust over 74/85 miles for the month of July!***
I will have reached my goal before half marathon kicks off next week.
Nervously excited to begin that!
I just pray I stay healthy, uninjured, and don’t quit halfway thru…
Most things, Willy. Most things…
Going to try and blaze thru this 6 miler now.
See y’all in a bit, Hip Huggers!!
Question: How do you recover after your Long Run?

Useful info. Lucky me I discovered your site by chance, and I’m shocked why this coincidence didn’t took place earlier!
I bookmarked it.
