This past week, I had to fly to Phoenix for a meeting on Tuesday afternoon. I arrived back in Memphis early Thursday morning (2am). The flight back messed up my training scheduled for Thursday (Strength Training).
Here is a recap of what I was able to do this week.
Monday - Strength Training
I did my upper body dumbbell routine and 15 minutes of ab work. My abs were extremely sore the next day.
Tuesday - 3 miles
This run went really well. Nothing beats a good early morning run.
Wednesday - 5 miles
Even though I was in Phoenix, I was able to complete my scheduled run. I ran on the hotel treadmill before my meeting.
Thursday - Rest
This day was supposed to be another strength training day, but I was unable to train due to my flight schedule.
Friday - 3 miles
This 3 mile run went even better than the one on Tuesday. I think that my pace is finally back to my pre-injury pace!
Saturday - Rest
Sunday - 9 miles
Last Sunday I waited until too late in the morning to run (8:30am). By the time I was finished the heat index was already 104. I learned my lesson! This Sunday, I hit the road at 5:30am. Regardless, I was still drenched when I returned. One thing I learned on this run is that someone in my neighborhood mows their lawn at 6:30am. Who mows their lawn that early on a Sunday?!?!? The last couple miles of this run were tough, but I made it!
Total mileage for the week: 20 miles
