I ended June with some pretty low mileage. 95 miles for me. Not doing the half marathon I trained for and getting bronchitis will do that to mileage.
Let's say this marathon training cycle is going to be pretty amazing and amazingly hard. Last Saturday, Amy and I went out of a 7 mile super hot run. She had the hard job...she was pushing her daughter in a jogging stroller. But it was still hard and still hot! After were done, we did a set of plyos - box jumps, jump squats, jumping lunges, burpees and pushups.
|I'll soon get Amy to do selfies with me....but this was our first run together. Next time!|
This upcoming weekend we have a 14 mile progressive run scheduled. I'm already feeling a bit nervous about this as I'm racing the LL Bean 10k the day before. But, I will do my best!
Sunday, I enjoyed a great run with Jill- and again, it was super hot! I keep telling myself that this heat training will pay off.
Monday, another super hot day, included 6 miles and gardening. Gardening is a complete body workout and it's counting.
Tuesday, just a shake out 2 miles with a ton more gardening! I brought Izzy along and she chatted the entire way..... asking me if we were running by a forest, telling me that she is going to live next door to her grammy's house when she gets older. My little shy girl is a super chatterbox when it's just the two of us!!!
I had received Body Glove SURGE to try out. Before that two mile run, I tried the Mango Peach Surge. This little energy shot was very yummy! I had been feeling a bit sluggish prior to the run, but it definitely gave me an extra burst of energy!
A few facts about Body Glove Surge. There are no chemicals in them! They are made with green tea, coconut water, honey and have high antioxidant fruits. I loved the Peach Mango and cannot wait to try the Tropical flavor just before the LL Bean 10k this Friday!
Do you have any plans for the 4th? The weather is looking iffy here, but if it improves we'll be heading to the camp. Given our past few days of super hot weather - I am kinda hoping for a raining race. We'll see!
