Weekly Running Update: May 6, 2018

Happy Sunday all!

Anyone doing any races or training for one? Let us know! This week was the Broad Street Run! Sorry, race details will be in a separate post. ;)

My Week in training: (Taper week, i tend to do a couple extra miles on non running days of my training program, but I try not to stray too much on the last week)

Monday: 5 mi after work. Trail day, yay! Perfect way to start the week! Could tell immediatley that I didn't hydrate well today. Oops! Overall, still a good day at the trail. (Pennypack Creek). Did the side with a hill at the end. Middle of my run today saw some deer! Paused, got my camera out, but they didn't stick around for much longer.

Tuesday: 1 mi after work. Rest day. One for the streak. Smooth mile around the neighborhood.

Wednesday: 4 mi. Work from home day, lunch run! Definitely needed the mid day stress reliever today! Feeling the heat (index 90? what happened to spring?), hills, and allergies a bit today!

Friday: 1 mi before work. Rest day, one for the streak. Streak day . Didn't plan on getting up early, just sort of happened. Might as well get it in before work! Did yard work after work. :( Usually save yard work until after long run day, but the grass is growing too fast! Darn fertilizer is doing it's job! lol Tried not to over exert myself doing yard work. Saved the heavier stuff for Monday. Made sure to foam roll and hydrate before bed!

Saturday: 2 mi. Last taper day, yay! A comfortable 2 miles. Little extra effort on hills, but didn't go overboard. A little tightness before and after the run. Will do my best to hydrate and foam roll today!

Future races:
That's it for my spring lineup?! Four races in seven weeks, cant believe its over! My fall schedule is coming together. Will let you know if I add anything to Spring/Summer! let me know if you have any suggestions that are within a couple hrs of Philly. 

Good luck to everyone with training! Kick some butt!
