Hello friends! Hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend. I spent mine with my boyfriend, running, eating, and working on my capstone presentation which is due for tonight. I still cannot believe I’ll be finished with school in less than 24 hours.
Anyhow, I wanted to share with you guys my weekly recap but then I realized I only ran on the weekend. So I guess this should be called a weekend recap? Finals left me with no time whatsoever to run last week, and I’m definitely starting to feel how out of shape I am these days.
I even got a little nostalgic when I saw my personal records from my Nike+ Run app.
Right now I’m nowhere near to run 8 miles, to run a mile in 7 minutes, or to even accomplish any of the achievements in the above picture. All I’ve been able to do within the last month has been really easy runs during the weekend. And when I say easy runs, I say really SLOW ones.
The weather hasn’t been kind to me lately. Temperatures here in Florida are going up to the 86 degrees and humidity levels are above de 60%. Plus, I’m the worst when it comes my running schedule. School has been leaving me with no energy, and so by the end of the week I wake up so late that I go out for my run by noon. Not the coolest time of the day to be out there. Of course, I feel like I’m dying when I finish running any distance longer than 2 miles.
Can I have my Florida winter back please?
This weekend I ran 3.1 miles on Saturday at 13:14 average pace, and 4 miles at 12:22 average pace on Sunday. Sunday run was at my perfect easy run pace according Hanson’s method. My next goal for when I’m officially done with school, is to build up my base weekly mileage.
Before I end this post I wanted to share with you guys a picture I snapped from Sasha, my boyfriend’s pup.
She is a baby in the body of a Rottweiler. I think those sweet puppy eyes were staring at my boyfriend. This picture came out so cute I couldn’t help myself not to share it.
What are your next running goals?
How’s the running weather where you live?
