week 16 recap

This has been a bit of a sluggish week.  We spent Saturday-Wednesday at a condo on the beach with family – such a treat and my kind of vacation being only  30 minute drive away! :)  I think my body was tired from the last 2 weeks of beginning my “ramp up” and I also think I felt a bit sluggish knowing I was on a mini-vacation.  When then spent the weekend back home with my parents, sister and her family.  I LOVE running back home – with the group of guys who were huge in helping me get back in shape after baby #2 was born and leading up to our move to the flat land of Florida.

28.7 miles for the week

Monday
3.2 miles @ 8:53 pace – shortest, slowest run in a long time
postponed 30 day challenge because my arms were so sore from the day before!

Tuesday
5.2 miles @ 8:23 pace – took a while to get my body moving, but ended the run at a decent pace to make for an ok average
skipped 30 day challenge out of laziness

Wednesday
day off

Thursday
intervals on treadmill – 7 miles total, 56:07 total time
did 6 x 1/2 mile
