Total miles = 60.04 Total elevation = 3,386 feet Average pace = 10:40 Garmin Estimated V02 Max = 46 *For anyone who likes data, I put my daily stats below! Whew! I am so happy this 30 day challenge is DONE! Running two miles a day doesn’t sound hard, but day after day, I started to really dread my runs. My body is ready for some rest too.
I was so hopeful about what a good week this was going to be in the beginning and it started off great – I had one of my fastest times on Sunday. I feel great here, in Arizona! This is probably partly contributed to all the rest I took last week (3 days!), the lower elevation, and flat roads. Towards the end of the week I ran a 9:17 and Garmin said it was an easy workout! This week lived up to my expectations. I have not been dreading my runs as much here either. On Wednesday, I tried to […]
As you’ll see below, this was a rough week. I ran two miles almost everyday for the past two weeks and this week all those miles caught up with me. I was tired, my body did not want to move, and I started dreading my runs. Two miles is not a lot but it is enough to tire out my body, especially day after day. I am realizing more and more that this 30 day challenge should have been a monthly mileage minimum vs a daily minimum. For each day I’ve rested below, I will make up the mileage by […]
Happy Monday! I had such an amazing weekend and did not want it to end, but I feel so prepared for this week. We made some major progress at my project at work last week. I’m excited to see how much progress we can make this week too. I also feel relieved that it is continuing to move after being stagnant for weeks! I am so not used to the time change yet! It gets dark so early. I’ve been getting up at my normal time, around 5am, and getting online to start my day. My entire team works east-coast […]
October was not my ‘get in shape month’ – in fact – quite the opposite. Any fitness I had previously accumulated no longer exists, hence my 30 day running challenge. Of course, my first day of the challenge I flew to NYC and didn’t get to my hotel or to run until 9pm. My second day I got up at 7am EST (4am Nevada time) and ran again. I don’t love workouts that are 12 hours apart, but I couldn’t fail the first two days!!
