Happy Sunday and welcome to the Weekly Wrap! I am super excited to be a host this week.

I went with the flow this week, which led to only
two one run s, but I swam and met with my personal trainer twice. I’m leaning more and more towards dropping down to the Navy 5 Miler (instead of the Half Marathon). My goal of PRing my half marathon time is not likely to happen and the more I push, the less fun running is becoming. I’ll still be running the Double Dare Challenge at Disneyland two weeks before. But that weekend is just for fun, not for time. I’d like to drop down in distance and be able to look forward to the race, rather than toeing the line knowing that I haven’t put in the time to reach my publicized goals.
Have you ever dropped down in race distance?
Have you ever lost your race/running mojo?
What did you do to get it back?
Monday 7/31: AM: Walked to work (2.5 miles) | PM: Swim 450 m (30:43) 6:14 min/100 yd
Tuesday 8/1: Personal Training: Lower Body (60:00)
Wednesday 8/2: Personal Training: Upper Body (60:00)
I only have two more sessions with my personal trainer! I’m so sad, but the reason I signed up for these sessions was to kick start a weight training program. It can be hard to do it on your own, building a strong foundation and to keep going. I would highly recommend a few sessions with an expert to help you get started or even to break out a rut!
Thursday 8/3: Walked to work (2.5 miles)
I was anticipating running to work today, but I didn’t quite prepare enough (leaving enough clothes and lunch food at work), so I just packed up my backpack and walked to work.
Friday 8/4: Rest
Saturday 8/5: Hungry Apple Challenge at the Hardest Cider Run 5K (51:06) 16:26 min/mi
This was probably one of the prettiest courses I’ve ever run – but man, was it HARD! It had rained early the morning of the race, which made for a very slippery and muddy trail. Look for the race recap later this week!
Sunday 8/6: Rest – cleaned up a storm and enjoyed an easy Sunday with Roswell!
Total mileage for the week: 8 miles
Total mileage for NAFHALF training cycle: 87.14 miles
