For this week I’ve had to adjust my long run day to accommodate my husband’s schedule and the kids soccer. The nice thing is a friend is doing the same thing so I’ll have a running buddy for Friday. I also decided to do a bike ride on Thursday to give my legs a break from running before my long run.

This past week’s training had a few hiccups. Poor sleep and hot weather did not make for a good combination. I did get some type of running in on the days I had to run and I was able to get in my long run.

My long run was actually very fun. A friend and I ran from her house to the soccer field where our kids were playing. We timed it perfectly as her husband pulled in with our kids just as we got there.

Week 1 of my plan went well. I had an unexpected hike on the 4th of July with my husband. The picture was at the beginning of the hike before I was drenched in sweat. It was a very hot day and this was one of the few places with shade.
