Monday, September 4th – 90 minutes on the stationary bike

Thursday, September 7th – 5 mile run

Friday, September 8th  Rest Day

Saturday, September 9th – 19 mile run

This was quite the week. The hubby was out of town, so I swapped my runs around with work, Walt and such. Wednesday and Thursday I actually did my runs after work, which is not my normal time, but I got them done (although Wednesday was ROUGH and I was glad Home Depot was still open and around my turnaround spot because I wasn't going to make it much further without a restroom...). You would think I would be acclimated to this heat and humidity, but my body just can't seem to adjust. It has been so soggy (if you can't tell from all the sweat in the photos), but here's to hoping Detroit is the perfect fall morning and I feel extra strong after this summer training. I swapped around my long-long run and my short-long run (Saturday and Sunday) because Sunday I had plans earlier in the morning so figured I'd knock out the longer of the two on Saturday when I didn't have to be to work until noon. Let's just say the 19-miler (and my 17-miler from a couple weeks ago) were confidence killers. I feel strong through about 10 and then on the turnaround I am dragging. I don't know if it's a mental thing, body fatigue (especially since I did them Saturday mornings after working a full week on my feet at the running store), underfueling or overfueling, dehydration, the weather, or maybe my fitness just isn't where I thought it should be. Anywho, here's to hoping my last two long runs (two 20-milers) go a little better. I CAN DO HARD THINGS!

How were your workouts this past week?
