This week, I got some great training in. I was on vacation up north near Crivitz, WI and it is a much more hilly area than near my house. This led to some good interval training and long training on the hills.
This week I ran a total of 35.44 miles in 5:40:30. As I said above, the last half of the week was done on vacation up near Crivitz. The hills added a great dimension to my training and I felt strong while doing them.
My long run on Sunday was pretty challenging. I had every intention of getting up early (5:00 AM) but was just tired from being up late and hanging out at the beach and stuff. I didn’t start my run until about 8:30 and by then it was pretty warm. I definitely felt the heat! I was surprised though, that I only used one GU gel in 14 miles. I drank a decent amount of water but not a ton. I did have a banana with peanut butter on it before my run, so I think that helped. Overall I felt really good. When I nit the half marathon mark, I was just under my two hour goal, so I was happy with that.
That is about it this week. I hope everyone gets out to run!
