NUUN #RunBikeHydrate Virtual 5k & Foo Fighters!

Monday: 15min glutes/hips

Tuesday: 4m easy 9:15/pace

Wednesday: 35 min running drills, skill work

I’m sure by now you’ve seen the Nuun #RunBikeHydrate (Virtual 5k, 10k and 10 mile bike ride) all over Instagram! So I’ll tell you a little about how my run went.

This 5k I planned was a loop near my gym which started downhill, climbed the 2nd mile and had a downhill finish. I wouldn’t necessarily consider this a legit 5k time since I had to stop at a few lights and stop to catch my breath in the humidity. For a speed work sesh, i’m happy with it. To even see sub-7 paces on my watch is a huge win coming back from an injury.

The mile splits were 7:00, 7:15, 6:50

Virtual 5ks are kinda strange. It’s easy to cheat…i.e. me stopping for a breather a few times. And it’s also hard to really cruise without stopping at lights, unless you’re on a track or treadmill. However! I still did feel the urge to push the pace and “race” and I still got a little nervous before I took off. What are your thoughts on virtual races?

What are your thoughts on self timers? I suck at it. haha Pretty sure I was chewing gum in this one.

My First Time In Ocean City & Annapolis

Monday: 30min TRX & boxing drills

Tuesday: 3.3m easy 9:05/pace

I’ve been missing from the blog. Sorry dudes– this job and my real life is taking up a little too much time. I miss this. I miss you guys..virtual hug? No? k.

So I never got the chance to talk about my amazing weekend escape during the 4th of July weekend to Ocean City, MD. One of my awesome cool PT clients, Sarah let me tag along for the weekend. The beach was pretty. Much prettier than I expected (I’m a little spoiled since I lived in FL for 10 years).

We had a good time telling strangers I train her and I was her trainer haha. The best part of the weekend was getting to wear these glow sticks, walk along the boardwalk & watch the fireworks. Just kidding, the best part was when Sarah and I had a few drinks and sprinted down a street. I like beer, but i really like running 😉

I didn’t stick around too long the next day because I had a long run to fit in. Crazy how my long run is like 6-7 miles right now, but i’ll take what I can get—OH did i mention i’ve been running pain free? Yep. It’s been fantastic. Anywho, on the two and a half hour drive back from from OC, I decided to do something i’ve always wanted and just randomly stop and run in a new place. I picked Annapolis. Why not? It was another city in Maryland i’ve never ran in. (Zooma holds a 1/2 marathons there in the fall, but they’ve never lined up with my race schedule. <—i might have to do this bc Annapolis was so much fun to run in.)
