I am BACK from vacation. Yup, back at work, back at early morning runs and boy am I TIRED. Last week was the MLB All Star Game in Cleveland, and B ended up going to 3 nights of events for that (Sunday, Monday and then the game on Tuesday), which just made me tired.
I’ve definitely noticed a pattern in terms of how much sleep I get and how I’m able to run. Many of these runs were a STRUGGLE this week, mostly because I was going to bed past 11 and waking up at some point in the night when FW or LM got up. So when the 4:50 alarm went off I was pooped! My legs were tired, as was I. Here’s to hoping this week is a little less crazy at work and home and I get some more sleep!
Here is a look at my mileage this week:
Some highlights from the week include:
It was humid many mornings. I know 75 isn’t HOT but it was 80%+ humidity at 5 a.m.!
Seeing LOTS of deer. Several days I saw a momma deer and two babies. But one day, I saw a male deer, which doesn’t typically happen!
Monday morning, I got in more than 5 miles at a pace I was happy about. FW then went for a run that night around the block with us, so we got in 2ish runs 🙂
Saturday was an off day. But I still managed to get in my 11,000+ step goal, thanks to a walk we took as a family!
Some questions for you:
- How early do you wake up to run?
- Do you notice a difference in how much sleep you get and how your runs feel?
- Do you have a step goal you set for yourself?
