Monday, 11/21: Since high school, frustrating days have always led me to some fast runs. The day in clinic was busy and I felt like I wasn’t performing at my best, forgetting to ask patients pertinent questions and causing more work for my preceptor. Ran out three angry miles on the treadmill (21:06 aka 7:06 pace-holy moley! How did I ever run a HALF-MARATHON at that pace; I was dying) and an intense BodyStep class. BodyStep makes me want to become an instructor every time I go. The sets are hard, but only last 5-6 minutes at most and I always feel like I get a solid workout in.
Tuesday, 11/22: 5 miles on the treadmill (ugh, so mentally hard!) + BodyPump class!
Wednesday, 11/23: Off! And last clinical day of Family Med!
Thursday, 11/24: A pre-Thanksgiving dinner 5 miles around the Lakefront with my boyfriend who flew in yesterday! Haven’t seen him and his goofy self in 5 weeks! Love having him at home with me and the fam. 🙂
Friday, 11/25: Met up with my high school teammate and co-captain, Laura, for our traditional Thanksgiving break run! 4ish miles total and lots of fun catching up!
Saturday, 11/26: 1.5 miles before a grueling BodyStep class with Phil. Class was extra extra hard today-I’m not sure why!
Sunday, 11/27: A speedy 6.2 miles with Vinny after flying home and in between some studying. The miles felt fast, but great!
Hoping to focus on getting daily longer runs in over the next couple weeks to build a really solid foundation before Boston training begins!
Total = 24.7 miles
