This week has been work of trying to keep pace, in all aspects. For running, my legs have either been stale, the heat has been very hot (80+ degrees) or both. All I can do is try to move forward and keep at it even when my pace suffers.

The hill workouts with Team Steam have been really challenging and good for me. Still my hips are tight so I’ve been streaching, including lying on the ground and putting my legs up. Coco was a big help too. 🙂

We did a race on Saturday and from my workout list above you can see it wasn’t my best, but I will get a race report posted how it went next.
