My Week in Running

Monday:  4 miles on the treadmill featuring speed work.  I did the 30-20-10 plan for 3 repeats sandwiched between a couple of easy miles.

Tuesday:  Had plans to go the gym at night to check out a kickboxing class and to run a few miles before that.  I usually only to the gym in the morning so I didn't know how busy it would be.  I waited 15 minutes for a treadmill then of course really had to pee once I started running so after 1.5 miles I decided to chance it and hope a treadmill would be open when I got back.  Not so much.  I waited another 15 minutes then just decided to give up and go home.  I don't like waiting for a treadmill.

Wednesday:  5 miles on the treadmill.

Thursday:  4.5 miles on the treadmill.

Friday:  YoPi class.

Saturday:  5 miles on the treadmill.  Did 3 repeats of the 30-20-10 speed work plan.

Sunday:  Thanks to my sister Beth being at my house in the morning I got to go for a run outside by myself this morning.  Weather was great and I felt great running the first 6.5 miles.  Then there was a dead dog on the side of the road.  Clearly had been hit by a car then moved to the side of the road.  It freaked me out when I first saw it dead.  I stopped for a moment then ran on.  Then I turned and went back thinking maybe it wasn't dead and just needed medical attention.  No it was dead.  She had been dead for a while.  I dedicated my last 4.5 miles to the dog that won't be doing anymore running.

Weekly totals: 31 miles. 4 miles short of my goal.  Need to quit saving all my miles till the end of the week.

Next Week:  Hope to hit 35 miles.
