Since my running log week ends on Saturday here is how my training panned out. Mileage and intensity stayed the same but considering I had a day off the daily average bumped up slightly. My long run today was done on the treadmill since I’m a Navy spouse and my kids aren’t old enough to be left home alone for two hours. I’d say it was rough but honestly our rec. room temp was a good 10 degrees cooler (not air conditioned with the rest of house) then the temps outside where it was 90 when I woke up plus no humidity so I can’t complain.
About 2/3rds of the way into the run when I would normally take a gel, I took one look at it and thought “BLAH” so I walked to the kitchen and ate half a bowl of leftover Orange Chicken & Veggies (homemade not the fried kind). Jumped back on the treadmill and finished the run before my stomach had time to realize I committed a runner’s fueling crime. 80 mile weeks has me SO hungry ALL THE TIME. Just another awesome perk of running…eating.
Have a great weekend!!
