It has been about a month since I have posted a training blog. With races in Little Rock & Dallas over the past few weeks, I have taken off a few weeks to ward off an injury that has arisen in my foot/Achilles area. This week I was back to the grind stone. Next race up is a fun one. It is the 2nd Annual Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend on April 22-23. I am doing the Dark Side Challenge, so I will be doing the 10K on Saturday morning and the Half Marathon on Sunday morning.
Monday (3/27): Over my rest weeks that I mentioned above I started back with some weight training. Jason and I went to the gym at lunch and did a 30 minutes arms workout. Later in the evening, I went up to Fleet Feet Summerville and rejoined them for their weekly 6:30 Monday RunDay! I ran 3 miles with them at a pace of 8:22. It was National Whiskey Night, which they had for a toast, but since I do not drink, I went with the NUUN Lemon Lime Energy Drink
Tuesday (3/28): At lunch Jason & I ran 3 miles at lunch around downtown.
Wednesday (3/29): I did not workout on Wednesday. I went to Columbia for the Annual Telehealth Summit.
Thursday (3/30): While in Columbia, I got up before the conference and ran with Kevin & Marty around Columbia for 3.5 miles. We ran around the Governor’s Mansion & State Capital.
Friday (3/31): No Workout.
Saturday (4/1): On Saturday we changed up things. Because of the Flowertown Festival in Summerville and the Cooper River Bridge Run covering Mt. Pleasant & Charleston, we decided to go out to Folly Beach to run. I met up with EMack, Weston, & Tommy and we ran 8.2 miles around Folly Beach at a 9:44 pace. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful run.
