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.
