Hello and happy August!
This will be a key training month for me in preparation for the Wineglass Marathon on October 4. My coach sent me a couple intimidating sounding workouts to do this month — one is a 3 mile tempo followed by hill repeats at 5k pace (both in the same workout). Then I’ll have a 20 milers two days later. Yikes!
I’m also coaching two people, and my biggest challenge has been trying to keep them motivated with the heat and humidity slowing them down. I feel their pain. This step in learning to coach is a tough one.
On Friday, I went to a new-to-me park for a 6.5 mile hike with my husband and some friends. The day was beautiful and less humid than we’ve been having. And the company was terrific.
