MONTH RECAP: August
Total running: 320 miles.
Workouts: After looking back at my training log, I realized that I skipped, cut short or otherwise modified 6 workouts (out of 8 total) this month. Hello burnout, nice to see you …
9 mi. run w/ 5 tempo mi. @ 6:36 avg. (was supposed to be 8 X 800)
16 mi. moderate pace LR (was supposed to be 20)
2 mi. WU, 3 X 2 mi. (6:33, 6:16, 6:33, 6:46, 6:59, 7:00), 2 mi. CD
12 Easy + 4 Up-Tempo (6:46, 6:55, 7:15, 7:16)
Races: Chickasabogue Park 2 Miler. I only did one race this month, but it was a good one! This race was the silver lining in an otherwise not-so-great month of training. It was fun to race a shorter distance and see the fruition of the summer training.
Favorite Race: By default, this goes to Chickasabogue Park 2 Miler, but any race that is a PR is likely to win the”favorite race” category anyway.
Longest run: 18 miles with some quality friend time!
Favorite run: Vacation running! It was nice to mix things up a little bit when we were in Destin. The combination of a change of scenery, new (to us) routes, being at the beach and having no set schedule led to some very enjoyable runs.
Rest days: 1
Other: I got in a couple of walks (one w/ my cousin and one w/ my mom), I rode the bike while Daniel ran one day and I finally got to go skiing!
What are you looking forward to in September?
Hopefully we’ll start seeing some cooler temps and there will be some fast fall running in our future!
