Last week was both mentally exhausting and physically. Luckily, when it mattered the most, I was able to run fast. That being said, running is never my life priority. Yes, I have a running blog, but my life and overall wellness mean more to me.
|Monday:||Easy 60 minutes|
|Tuesday:||Easy 60 minutes|
|Wednesday:||6X800s at 6 min pace|
|Friday:||Easy 45 minutes|
|Saturday:||Cupids Chase 5k (18:38)|
|Sunday:||14 miles with fast finish|
My legs were tired for most of the week. My husband was supposed to get home on Wednesday but a last minute change caused him not too. Which began an added stress. I didn’t handle it well. Was I crying all of the time? No, but was it an added stress? Yes. With life responsibilities, sleep took a hit. Luckily on Friday night, I fell asleep early and I got a lot of extra rest which ended up helping with the 5k.

As I mentioned on Instagram, it poured rain during the workout. For some reason, I was drawn outside. My legs were tired, and I could feel that. I got the workout done. Was it my favorite? No, but I finished and moved on.
Cupids Chase 5k (18:38):
I’ll have a full recap this week, but I felt better than I anticipated. My splits were 5:59, 5:52, 6:02. It’s my fastest 5k since my burnout, and I was definitely not expecting to run that fast with everything I’ve been dealt with. I can’t complain. I am excited to be that far into the 18s again, and I know on a good day, I’m capable of more.
