Weekly Sweats: Another (virtual) 5k PR!

Oh my goodness, we have a lot to talk about this week.

  • 21.6 miles of running.  I reduced my mileage partly to get in a 5k and partly because I didn't feel great for a few days
  • NDB, just a little 5k PR...for the 3rd time this year.
  • My 2nd fastest 10 miler ever

Ok, let's get started!

Weekly Sweats: Easy Miles and Where I am with the Half

The irony of my title is that none of the 32 miles that I ran this week were easy.  The weather wasn't in my favor so I "just ran" instead of trying to do workouts.  I also realized that my next half marathon is a week sooner than I thought it was (I had the date correct but I miscounted the number of Saturdays in September) so I increased my long run distance to try and catch up.

Weekly Eats: Just One Idea

A weekly round up: eats, watches, and reads.  If you came here looking for fresh new meal ideas, sorry but this week I did not deliver in that department.  The first few days of the month are always very busy work wise for me and exceptionally so this week.  I had just one meal idea and it took me until the weekend to make it a reality.

Weekly Sweats: 3 out of 5 ain't bad

This week's highlights: I had two consecutive days of sucky runs and then three consecutive days of good runs, got my long run in on a Friday, and did more strength work than I've done in a good long while.  Here's how the past 30 miles have gone.
