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 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.
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.
