Camping Trip = Fewer Miles, But Longer Run Intervals!
I’m back from the camping trip (more on that later this week).
Going a week without technology wasn’t so bad, but I am SUPER GLAD to be back to sleeping in my bed!
Here is where I was living last week:
And here is where I was running last week:
My running coach had me on a down week so I was only scheduled to do 15 miles in total, but I ended up doing 6 miles. We did A TON of walking each day and I actually ended up getting a huge and painful blister on the back of my right ankle. It got so big that by the end of the trip I couldn’t even put my sneaker on anymore (ouch)!
It was kind of a shame too because the humidity out west is like …. nothing compared to here on the east coast.
On each of my 3 mile runs I was amazed at how little I was sweating. I was also knocking out 6 to 7 minute run intervals easily even though I normally do 3 to 5 minute run intervals.
This week I’m back on track … I think. I was supposed to do 4 miles tonight and I only did 2. The truth is I had a LONNNNNG first day back in the office today and I’m still exhausted from the trip. We didn’t get in until around 10pm last night.
I need an extra night to recoup before I feel like myself again.
How many miles did you run last week?
Do you stick to your running schedule while on vacation?
