“I’m sittin’ pretty in Suntan City, got the best view in the world.”-Luke Bryan
Good morning summer sixteen! The official kickoff to summer is here and I couldn’t be more excited to spend the weekend with my favorite people, at my favorite place. I woke up bright and early for Flywheel before logging into work. Once 3pm hits, we’re all headed to happy hour to celebrate the long weekend. I’m craving a summer shandy like no other.
I plan to spend the weekend without alarms, a couple of runs, and lots of beach time. We’ll be headed down the shore first thing tomorrow morning. On Sunday, I get to spend the day with my little lovebug, Margo. We’ll be running around Philly together doing all sorts of fun things.
Summer weather was in full effect this week and my running most definitely hated it. I felt sluggish and was a lot slower than usual. I’ll give myself a week or so to acclimate before getting cranky. Here’s what my training log looks like from this week:
- Monday: 3.12-mile run (25:00)+lower body weights
- Tuesday: 40-minute tempo (4.47 miles)+upper body weights
- Wednesday: 7×400 intervals (3.1 miles)+lower body weights
- Thursday: 5-mile run (42:32)+upper body weights
- Friday: Flywheel 45
- Saturday: 5-mile run
- Sunday: 7-mile run
I hope everyone has a fabulous long weekend! Happy summer!
