Although this was a somewhat lower mileage week (and my Garmin is reminding me that I was "unproductive" - HA!), I am still stoked with my workouts. My hill repeats on Thursday may not have been fast, but they felt strong. (FYI - I shared this suggestion on my IG stories, but thought I'd mention it here as well. Folks ask me if I have any tips for hill repeats and my "secret" is to dedicate each uphill to a specific person or family. I take the uphill to pray for them and find it helps me to take my mind off myself and the struggle I may be feeling at the moment.) If I'm being honest, Saturday's pace run was freaking me out a bit, and even though it didn't feel easy (oh how I wish holding my marathon goal pace felt a little more effortless), I was able to nail the workout and have an average pace of exactly what I was aiming for - 7:37/mile!

How were your workouts this past week?
