Weekly round up & MAC Meet up on the Canal!

So much to catch up on this week!!  My Mud Run Jr post will be up tomorrow for sure... but for now here is what my training looks like so far this week...

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
And then this was a perfect summer treat:
Melon, Mozzarella and Prosciutto
Saturday:  We drove down to the beach Friday night and I had planned to run the Jungle Jim's 5K but was on Mommy Duty so I didn't make it to the run.  It looked like a BLAST...My good friends Lori and Sandra ran it and seeing their pictures made me a little jealous.  So I had to lace up and test my speed and new Mizuno Wave Sayonara!!! 
Wave Sayonara
I was sent these AMAZING shoes to sneak peak and try out before they hit the store July 5th!!!!!!!! I am in LOVE....I set out to run 6 miles and decided to test my speed.  6.25 miles in 40 minutes with overall pace of 6:30!  New PR for me and I think the shoes had something to do with it! 

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!

LOVE them!

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:
 Not a bad way to end the day and look at that view!!!  Beautiful!  I just need to remember not to kill my legs before I meet up with super speedy runners!  Today's total run was 9 miles in 67 minutes!

Anyone else adjusting to the HOT HUMID summer running?

Happy Running!
