As I mentioned last week, week 11 of my training was pretty much a complete bust. Between painting our townhouse and packing up our apartment, as well as the move itself, I only had time to train once.
Tues 7/8 – 3.10 mile treadmill run, 0.41 mile cool down walk, kettlebell squats, abs
The rest of the week I was very active with everything involved with moving. With our townhouse being three stories, I’m sure I logged plenty of miles going up and down the stairs. Too bad I didn’t have a pedometer on to track all of my steps!
The long run that I missed was only scheduled to be four miles, so in the grand scheme of things I didn’t miss too many miles during week 11. In the long run, it shouldn’t have too much of a negative impact on my Virginia Beach training.
This past week was all about getting back on track. Although we still haven’t transferred our gym membership, I was fortunate this week that the heat and humidity weren’t in full force like they have been up to this point of the summer. Its been a welcome relief since I don’t have the treadmill as an option right now. I thoroughly enjoyed spending the week exploring the new neighborhood by foot, and especially enjoyed running on a new to me trail during my long run on Sunday. With the Cub Run Stream Valley Trail being about a half mile from our house, I’m loving how close we now are to a trail! At the apartment we had to drive in order to take advantage of one of the local trails.
Mon 7/14 – 3.05 mile neighborhood walk with Riley

Sat 7/19 – “Rest” day (we cleaned our old apartment for close to six hours!)
Sun 7/20 – 11.05 mile run on the Cub Run Stream Valley Trail, 0.25 mile cool down walk
