Friday: After working a crazy 12hr midnight shift and just 4 hours of sleep I managed to get to the gym and run a steady 8 miles in 61 minutes while my oldest son worked out in the youth fitness center! My dear friend Debbie ( who is an amazing chef ) was treating us to her delicious food and beverage at Dawn's house so I was prepared to get my grub on! This is just one of the best things I have ever tasted:
|Crab Avocado Gazpacho
|Melon, Mozzarella and Prosciutto
After my run I changed into my bikini and gathered my men and then we hit the beach from 10:30 to 4 pm!! So much fun and loved every second of spending time with my beach bums!
Sunday: LAZY day at the beach filled with putt putt golf and boardwalk time!
Monday: I spent the morning at the bay with the boys and relaxed reading while they were fishing! I absolutely love beach life and waking up, throwing on a bikini and hanging with my little dudes! Since I had to work at a 11 pm we drove back home and I laced up for a HILL PYRAMID long run...I forgot how much I loved this run. Here is what it looks like:
Warm up 10 mins flat and steady pace of 8:06
Increase incline by .5% every 2 minutes until max incline of 5% then decrease incline by .5% every 2 minutes until flat road and repeat! I did 10.5 miles in 1:22 with average speed of 7:49....This run really kills the quads and will leave you dripping with sweat!
Tuesday: Since my hubby had 2 softball games and there is a great running course around the fields I decided to lace up again in my Wave Sayonara and log a few HOT HUMID miles! The course is a 1.8 mile loop with some small inclines and a nice size hill between the fields.. I ran a total of 7.5 miles in 51 minutes with average pace of 7:04 and my gosh I was dripping with sweat! Even the softball men weren't sweating as bad as I was!
Today: Before we hit the pool for the day I ran 4 miles in 29 minutes and did a legs and core workout that was filled with squats, lunges, ham curls, wall sits, and ad/abductors. I then decided to meet up with my running club for a nice run along the C&D canal! There were about 10 of us out running and it was another HOT one! I ran with Dave who is super speedy...We did a total of 5 miles and then all met up for a bite to eat and drink at Schaefers Canal House:
Anyone else adjusting to the HOT HUMID summer running?
