We last spoke about my training on Friday, so let's get to Saturday!
I decided to take a Running Rest day on Saturday since I ran on Friday with Nick, (my originally planned rest day). I made my way to the gym for an upper body/core workout. My workout involved my usual arm series with free weights along with some chest and back. During my core workout in the studio there were two other girls in there, totally hogging the space and they made a huge mess! Not to mention that they turned the stereo up so loud I couldn't hear the music coming from my earbuds. So annoying. I gave them numerous eye rolls. Don't worry, they didn't see me, lol.
|Messy hair, don't care. Or do I? lol.|
I know, I know....I was supposed to rest lower body today, but I wanted to go for a short bike ride. It was just so nice out.
I biked 11 easy miles and then came home to nap with Lola. :)
|Try super hard not to be jealous of how sexy I look in my helmet, LOL!!!|
I was originally supposed to 'race' a half marathon today. Since I have done two races in the past two weekends I opted out of that run on the training plan. I thought a regular long run would do just fine. :) And it did.
|Matt and I should definitely look into a drawing class for adults, lol.|
Once again, I drank an entire 2L of water on the run. :0
16.3 miles on the street and trail. The temperature was ideal for a summer long run! I don't know where the humidity went, but you won't find me posting 'Missing' notices on street poles for it. ;)
Sam and I planned a bike ride out to the Bike and Bean for today. I enjoy biking much more after a long run than in the days leading up to one. It's good to get the legs moving at a nice easy pace to help with the DOMS.
My training plan had an easy 3 miler on the schedule for the day so I did that first. Easy. Flat. Trail. :D
What an awesome day for a bike ride! Not too scorching hot at all. I even packed a long sleeve just in case I needed it.
I hope you've tried their scones by now! I've suggested them to you at least 3 times ....lol.

My mid-distance run was on plan for today. For some weird reason I get a little nervous for these runs....don't ask why, because I don't have the answer, lol. Maybe because it's shorter than a long run, so I feel that I need to run them faster, who knows?
The first 2.5 miles were at a relatively easy pace with the following 6 miles at half marathon pace. Then I eased back for the final few. Once again, I mixed trail and road running today.
So there's my training update!
How's your training going?
