Week 6 & Week 7 recaps

Week 6 Recap

After the 5k run on Wednesday, the 20th (see the post here), I finished off the week with two additional runs.

Thursday

I had a nice afternoon solo run. I was scheduled for 2.75 miles, but I took a pee break after the first 4 minutes and my Garmin can’t pause. So, it’s broken into 2 entries! I kept an average pace of sub-12, complete with a few inclines… and I didn’t feel like I was gonna die! #Progress Maybe I took today’s shirt literally. 🙂

Friday

A short Happy Friday run with a running girlfriend: 2 miles. I’m getting faster!

Week 7 Recap

At the beginning of week 7, I took a brief hiatus to recharge and vacation in Atlanta. So, I only got 2 runs in before the end of the week.

Monday-Thursday (Atlanta)

I also took a break from low-carb on my getaway, and enjoyed some good eats! In particular, some great seafood gumbo at Pappdeaux’s and the best strawberry cheesecake at Sage Woodfire Tavern!

 

Friday

My first full day back in NJ, we did a slow and easy 5K distance, catching up on life.

Saturday

After a lot of self pep talking this morning, I got out on the track for 5 miles of speed work with run-walk intervals. My overall pace was faster than my normal running time (including walk breaks), which shows me that I could probably be running faster.
