It may be the first of September but it still feels like August here! All week we have been experiencing a heat wave!!
Last night I finished off August with another tough workout with the running club. After a warm up on the trails, we did 1000m at tempo pace as a group and then split up. I headed off with two other women to do 4x1 mile repeats. We decided to do the repeats on a loop at the park that is about 1200m long but has some rolling hills. Thankfully the other women had garmins otherwise I would not have known when we had reached a mile.
My legs felt dead after the first mile and I wondered how I was going to complete the whole workout. The rolling hills of the course did not help much in my pace and I was wishing we were at the track!
4x1 miles with 1 min rest in between
7:05, 7:15, 7:29, 7:41
With last nights workout I finished August with 119.7 miles!! That is the most mileage I have ever run in one month! I was surprised with myself that I was able to increase from 20 miles a week to 25-29 miles a week and not feel completely wiped out. With the extra mileage I feel fitter and faster!
How was your August?? Happy Wednesday!
