Yeah. So. I might have forgotten to post week three's recap and I cannot remember for the life of me what I even ran that week. I want to say my total mileage was 15 or so. I didn't do my long run. We woke up to no water that Sunday. I wasn't interested in running nine miles and then sitting in my filth until who knows when. Good life choice. We didn't get full restoration until 7:00pm. When you can't run, the most logical thing to do is go to a breakfast buffet. Figured I'd work out my stomach.
Total mileage: 26
Total treadmill miles: ZERO!!
Monday- 6 miles on the hills
Oh. You know. My Garmin died less than a mile in to the run. I knew it, but also know where the turn around is so I didn't stress. I just need the miles.
Wednesday- 6 miles, slightly faster pace due to time constraints
Friday- 9 miles on the hills
Sunday- 5 recovery miles on the hills
While it was pretty chilly all week, I was very greatful to run all of my miles outside. I'm hoping the wether stays dry so I can continue this. Running outdoors is soooooo much easier than the treadmill.
This week, I need to do core work and stretching. I'm noticing some discomfort in my lower back and want to make sure that doesn't turn into something that'll sideline me. Over all, a great week and I can't wait for week five!
