Nowhere Fast

“Red sky faded to black, a couple cans deep in a six pack. World disappearing around us, temptation always found us.”-Old Dominion

IMG_8618TGI-friggen-F. Seriously, thank God it’s Friday. After work today, I’m headed back to cow country for a little R&R over the long weekend. I’ll get to spend time with my aunts, my Margo, and my boy. After the past two weeks, I don’t think I’ve needed a break more. Since a 5k race was on my training plan this week, I had an extra rest day that I used to cross train. Instead of signing up for a race, I met up with my friend and we raced each other. He’s a much faster runner than I am, so trailing behind him really helped me keep that goal pace. Even though I’ve used this blog as a training journal of sorts, I decided to buy a Believe I Am training journal. I can’t wait to start documenting the road to my first marathon.

Here’s what my training log from this week looked like:

  • Monday: 5-mile run+abs
  • Tuesday: 3-mile run+lower body circuits
  • Wednesday: Spin class+upper body circuits
  • Thursday: 5k
  • Friday: Rest
  • Saturday: 5xhill repeats (3.75 miles)
  • Sunday: 3-mile run

Since I have off work on Monday for the holiday, I doubt I’ll be posting. Talk to everyone on Wednesday 🙂
