Yay! I made up for the missed mileage from last week. There wasn't too much out of the ordinary happening for me this week. I had a really good training week, a great week at work, took a couple of solid naps and have been VERY mindful of my diet!

All week, across the state of Alabama, we have had some pretty bad storms...
Running outside has been almost impossible. I've logged a few extra miles on the treadmill. However, we managed to get our long run in Saturday morning with very little rain! We still had 94% humidity and light misting so needless to say, we were SOAKED but even at that, we had a great 11-mile run and post-run coffee. :)

Post run Coffee!
So far so good with my training...I'm having fun documenting my progress and my set backs. Next week, my training calls for a 9 mile long run. Hopefully, the weather will be much better this week and we will be able to get those miles in!

As for tonight, I'm off to snooze! I have a 4am wakeup call to start my workouts....Good night!

Happy Running, Happy Training and Happy Sunshine!
After the storms...
Ready for some sunshine next week!
