August is a terrible month to be training for a marathon. It’s still relatively hot and humid, and that lazy summer feeling is in full swing. And I usually have it worse than in June or July since I know summer is coming to an end VERY soon. We also had wacky schedules again this week which always makes it a little tougher to squeeze in those runs,
But here’s how the week went down:
Got 3.5 miles in at lunch on Monday and 5 miles after A went to bed on Tuesday. I went for a baby-less long run on Saturday and got 12 miles in. On Sunday I took a “Step Rally” class at Lithe. In total I got in 20.5 miles and my “cross training”, but I was still 1/2 of a mile short of the weekly goal of 21, and I only ran on 3 days. Unfortunately Week 7 was a little more of the same. But I’ll be recapping that later in the week.
As I mentioned earlier in the week, we’re on vacation this weekend through Labor Day and it cannot come soon enough. I need a break, and I need some time to run!
