Weekly Workouts: 8/15 - 8/20

This is Week 6 of 18, a stepback week, and 1/3 of the training program. Still streakin' in terms of not missing a run. So maybe I can work on pace this week? I'm still inconsistent in the fact that I will have good runs, normal runs, and downright crappy ones. Last week, I was feeling twinges of my hamstring injury, so I will need to be more careful from now on...

------

This Week's Workouts:

Sunday - rest

Monday - 4 (out of 5) mi; 10 min strength; 1 mi walk outdoors; 20 min backbends yoga
Ugh, it was so hot in the gym this morning, making this run impossible to finish, even at a slow speed. Right foot arch, which has acting up lately, also wasn't helping. Will try to run an extra mile tomorrow morning to make up for it. Honestly not feeling it at all lately. Does this end my streak? Well, as long as I hit the weekly mileage...

Tuesday - 4 (of 3) mi - outdoors

Wednesday - 6 mi @6.7-7.0, 20 min strength, 4 mi walk (half of that was unplanned)
Thinking about not going to salsa tonight... it's like 100 degrees here, and to dance w/a slew of sweaty old folks = no picante. Probably going to take the sis to the library instead. On a better note, I really hauled @$$ today, in spite of it being really hot indoors and out, and I made those 20 minutes of strength really count (5 min rope-climbing simulator, 3x10 - upright crunch, adductor/abductors, hamstrings, push-ups, bicep curls, tricep dips, shoulder press).

Thursday - 3 mi, 30 min strength

Friday - 20 min bike; ~40 min strength
I woke up so, so sore in the inner thigh muscles, most likely due to some traveling squats(? - not sure what they are called) that I was doing the day before. Wow, have my adductors gotten that weak from not going to FitMoves for a month??

Saturday - 9 mi - outdoors

Weekly Mileage: 26
