There appears to be a notable lack of races in my calendar for the moment and I feel like I'm missing that a bit at the moment. Still, there is a lot of training going on!
I was back at the track again on Wednesday for 800's this time. Only girl doing this workout so proud of myself for sticking with it. The coach did make me stay back on the 4th one and only do 400 for that as I wasn't getting a full recovery. Apart from that I completed the session. So that's three track workouts in a row. Yay!
Thursday I did 8 rainy miles. It actually wasn't a bad evening at all once you were already wet.
Friday I met up with my lovely friend N in Galway for a long awaited night on the town. We had a blast and were proper social butterflies (well we thought so anyway!) For this reason the only exercise done on Saturday was a walk to Sheridans Bar in Knocknacarra for a late breakfast (they serve until 1pm) and much rehashing of our night over sparkling waters.
Sunday I had a long drive to pick up my baby boy in Achill. So good to have him home!
By the time I got back it was nice and warm and I realised I had forgotten my headphones. I headed off anyway for a very uncomfortable 10 miles but it's done and they can't all be nice I suppose!
I followed that up with another fairly crappy 5.5 miles in the heat today. My legs were tired and my lungs were hating the pace. Probably should have slowed it down a bit due to the heat but never mind. I'm going to run by myself Thursday to keep my pace comfortable after track Wednesday.
Rest day tomorrow and perhaps a picnic somewhere nice.
