Tuesday brought me NTC 45 min Intermediate Get Toned Competitor workout loaded with pulse lunges and froggers - oi! Hamstrings and quads did not like me at all that day.
Wednesday was a 3 mile tempo run. I didn't fair too well as I read the weather wrong and was not prepared for the sticky humidity in the morning. I finished the run and there was no runner's high - I was exhausted!
|The one thing that kept me going was the reward of chocolate soy milk :P|
Yesterday also rewarded me with box 3 of goodies from Nike Women!
NIKE LUNARGLIDE+ 4 (fuschia) - I've yet to try them - Friday I have a 4mi run so I'll be sure to review. I am hearing amazing things about this runner, so I'm excited to give them a spin!
NIKE SPEED LONG-SLEEVE - loving the laser-cut thumbholes for additional coverage around the hands, this will be key depending on the weather in San Francisco
NIKE PRO HYPERCOOL BRA - I now have a complete rainbow of bras - woot!
NIKE RELAY tank top
NIKE RELAY PRINT capris - the print is kinda funky, but I'm sure I won't mind when the cooler weather arrives
The new compression gear will definitely help me on my long runs and prevent chaffing. I was sweating like a beast those days and started chaffing on my underarms. I'm new to long distance running, so it's good I am going through the trial and error phase now instead of on the day of the marathon.
Today brings me another NTC workout - Intermediate 30 min Get Strong Perfect Score. Squats, jumps squats and core are the main focus. Wish me luck :)
Tomorrow is a 4 mile run, followed by a 9 mile on Saturday and Sunday REST...
Total miles this week = 23miles.
