Hey, I hope you’ve had a great week so far!
I have been so BUSY since I was away on vacation in Charleston, South Carolina! What a beautiful city! I’ll be sharing my experiences in Charleston next week, so hopefully you’ll check it out!
Even when on vacation, training doesn’t stop! So here’s a recap of Week 4 of my Philly 10K training!Latest recap of training for the Philly 10K! #run215 #sweatpink Click To Tweet
Wednesday 8/12: Finally, I ran with the City Fit Girls! Long overdue. We ran a new route (to me), which was mostly running through city streets. It was a really nice day for 3 miles.
Thursday 8/13: Speed work, 5 miles total including warmup and cooldown. It went well! My earphones are broken though so that was a pain trying to listen to music. We were supposed to have kickball that evening, but the other team forfeit the game. Unfortunately, while we were playing around I caught the ball, only to slice the heck out of my wrist with my nails! Go figure…
Friday 8/14: Rest day, heading down to Charleston!
Saturday 8/15: 7-mile long run. We went to the Palmetto Trail outside of Charleston. It was absolutely beautiful, but we were ravaged by mosquitos. Regardless, I was going to get my 7 miles no matter the cost! I wanted to do an out and back, but I kept getting cut short…so that was frustrating. I forgot to bring my Clif Shot Bloks (they were on my bed in the hotel), but I didn’t seem to need it.
Sunday 8/16: 3-mile run, followed by strides. We also did a walking tour in Charleston, followed by
Monday 8/17: No running, much more laid-back day!
Tuesday 8/18: I went for a 3 mile run on my birthday! It wasn’t very hot, but it sure was humid! It ended up raining for much of the day.
Wednesday 8/19: Rest day, heading back home…
I’m very happy with how this past week of 10K training went! I did everything I was supposed to do, I didn’t run too fast, and I got to run in new locations. Sometimes a change of scenery is a necessity! All of my runs were generally enjoyable, even the long run full of mosquitos!
I’m going to give week 4 an A! No complaints at all!
Do you like to go for a run/work out while on vacation?
