What a week this past week was! We had a roller coaster of weather this past week, including several days in a row of dreary, rainy, and cold weather. I’m quite missing the sunny 70 and 80 degree days that we’ve already had several of this Spring, and even though warm weather in this area is often accompanied by humidity, I’d much rather have those days than the very dreary days that we’ve been having. Yes, I know that means that my pace will slow down, but I’m quite fond of hot and humid weather.
Despite the dreary weather that we had for most of the week, I made the best of the week. Some of my highlights from this past week included:
Running in my new ZOOMA singlet for the time during Tuesday evening’s run
Spending two evenings focusing on strength and/or weight training after making it a priority for myself after my lack of training last week
PRing at Saturday’s Jaguar 5k
The cloudy and cool weather definitely worked in my favor during Saturday’s race, and not only did I meet my A goal, but I also ran my first sub-30 5k. I can’t wait to recap the excitement of Saturday’s race! Until then, I’ll be living the high of my productive training week last week and using it to fuel my motivation for this week.
