Whew, it’s been pretty hot here in Florida. The theme of my runs these day is humid as heck! I have been training through the heat for over 8 years now, but it always seems worse to me every summer. It’s like I blank out how hot it was the last year. Ha!
I did a couple of weeks of vlog workout recaps on my YouTube Channel, but wasn’t sure it was getting much attention. If you like my recaps, please let me know if you prefer them in blog format like this, or in a video.
Sunday, July 19th – Hit the gym for a bike workout. Got in 9 miles, followed by a 1 minute plank. Legs were a bit sore from Saturday’s 8-miler, so took it a bit easier.
Monday, July 20th – Bike workout at home before work. Did 11.3 miles in just over 53 minutes.
Tuesday, July 21st – Tuesday morning run with my group in Baldwin Park. Legs were tight at the start of the run, but thankfully, they loosened up by the end.
Wednesday, July 22nd – REST DAY.
Thursday, July 23rd – Track Thursday. Did two miles of 800s, with a 200m walk in between each. Warmed up beforehand with a walk lap, then cooled down with another two laps of walking.
Friday, July 24th – REST DAY.
Saturday, July 25th – Long run day. Was planning on doing 6 miles, but pushed to get in 8 instead. Wasn’t sure I would make it, as I felt draggy and hot, but got it down. Was glad I got in the extra 2 miles.
How were your workouts last week? Let me know in the comments.
