It's a process, and I'm cautious!*I walked 1 mile, I biked 17 miles, I completed 6 days of Supreme 90 day, and 2 yoga classes
*I'm really liking the Supreme 90 day workouts ($20.00 at Bed Bath & Beyond), and I feel like it's making me stronger on my runs. I like that the workouts are fast paced, and 30-40 min. I like the variety of the workouts each day too.
*I'm making progress with MyFitnessPal.com (free calories in, calories out tracking system) It's working!
*I will continue to increase my mileage, with some step back/recovery weeks in the mix.
*7 weeks until Tupelo 26.2 training run, 13 weeks until Mt. Desert, ME 26.2 hilly training++ run, and 20 weeks until Baton Rouge 26.2 mile race. I'm thinking my goal race will be Baton Rouge (or Stennis if the weather is perfect), so I have PLENTY of time. I'm enjoying the no pressure training with lots of cross added in.
*This week, I will move my long runs from the flat lands of South LA, to the hills of South MS. Tupelo and MDI will both be challenging races, so I need the long runs to be on hills.
As I ran this section, I heard several "critters" too close to the road. Scary because I have seen dead alligators near the edge of the road. Eeeeek~!
Yeah, I outran this!
I will be joining Amanda over at Run To the Finish in celebrating her 30th birthday with a 3 mile run. Join Us! A great way to celebrate Amanda's day, and get in a good training run.
Details on her site, but the run can be anytime Aug. 10th-15th.
I love this time of year, with the mileage going up, the training intensity on the way up, fitness level slowly rising. Thankfully, in the past couple of years, I have grown to LOVE the summer training. This year, I love it more than ever!
Fun weeks ahead!
