Saturday we had the Atlanta's Finest 5K. Not a PR for me, but a respectable 27 minute finish. We are in the middle of our annual 3 race weekend August all back to back. I don't know why we do this in August? Surely there is an easier way to torture ourselves. Anyway we are mostly treating the first two races like speedy group runs. Saving ourselves for the third race. Vinings Downhill. Plank for 2 minutes.
Sunday wanted to still get in a little longer run. We did 5 1/2 at Silver Comet Trail. This was a first, when hubby was like "let's run a little further." Usually that is me. I am the distance girl; he is the streaker.Plank for 1:07
Monday usual 3.1 round the hood - Plank for 1:30
Tuesday 3.25 usual route - Plank 1:17
Wednesday one more 5K at 4:30 AM round Vinings Plank 1:40
Thursday pre-dawn and work 5K. Plank 1:11
Friday race tomorrow cut it short - 2.25 - Plank 1:30
Eating was pretty good this week. Kind bar and fruit for lunch everyday but today. Business lunch at a Mexican restaurant but I ordered Chicken and Rice soup it has so many yummy veggies.
Cooked pretty healthy meals at home.
Pretty good week. I am a creature of habit when it comes to running. I mentally commit to just doing it every morning. It may take a tremendous sense of adventure, but it makes me feel good and it is the best way to start my busy work day.
Hope you all had a successful week. If not there is always next week.
