The Week That Was: 5.16 - 5.23

This was the first week of a pretty crazy next few. We had a wedding this weekend so I needed to make sure I could adult enough during the week and get everything done.

Since I didn't run on Sunday, I made myself run on Monday. I really wanted to try out my new Hoka Clifton 2, so I decided on four easy miles. It felt so nice to just go. The sun was nice but the breeze was not. The shoes were great! It's weird, I didn't notice much of a difference between the Hoka and my Saucony Ride. Maybe I need more runs to really tell a difference. 


I also did the first workout of the week from my "Quick Strenght For Runners" book I received from Velo Press. I'll review this book in the next few weeks for you guys. 

Tuesday it was time to hit the track! Coach Mark gave me a fun workout to do. Lauren Fleshman shared it on Strava, it's call Taylor Swift. Mainly because you need to shake it off. This workout looked so fun! 

1 mile warm up
400x4 (1:47 goal) w/ 1:00 rest
(1:42 1:41 1:42 1:41)
One lap recovery 
300x4 (1:23 goal) w/ 45 sec rest
(1:14 1:15 1:11 1:16)
One lap recovery
200x4 (53 sec goal) w/ 30 sec rest
1 mile cool down. 
Total: 47:24 - 5.08 miles 


Wednesday was rest day, and I was super excited for that. I ended up working all day, but it was fine. 

Thursday should have been a long run day for me. Lucky for me the weather was finally warming up. I felt like crap and stopped at five miles. My legs were tired. It was hard, but at least I got five miles in. 



Friday we were off to our friends Sarah and Matthew's wedding!!! The weekend started with joining our friends at a Harrisburg Senetors game. I may not have seen most of the game because I was chatting! It was such a fun evening! 


Before the wedding on Saturday the bride and groom each hosted a 5k fun run. I decided I would run both and do a mile in between, for a total of seven. Of course it rained, but it was so much fun to spend time with my friends. 


The wedding was awesome. We all could not have been happier for our wonderful friends. It was a beautiful ceremony and a rocking reception. I am so grateful to have these people in my life. 


Of course Sunday was a travel/recovery day so there was zero running. We had a fun breakfast with the crew before we headed out. 

Summing up, I had four runs this week that totaled 21.1 miles. I'm feeling good coming into June and really focusing on more consistent training.
