Monthly Recap

August Recap

Hello September!



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!

Shortest run: 3 miles.

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!

I thought it was super cool how the map turned out on Strava!

What’s next: More to come on this …

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!
