Happy Sunday! It's been a while since I've posted a training update, but I've been super busy because I just took the bar exam this past week and my final prep period seriously took up all of my blogging time. Luckily, even though I wasn't having time to blog, I was still getting my runs in for the most part. The week of the test, I did scale back a little because I was so short on time and studying every free chance I got but other than that I am still on track. I'm also still dealing with the intense humidity that we have been having which has really been messing with my long runs as it becomes difficult to run when you feel like you are breathing through a straw. The good news is that these runs will only make me stronger and when this weather lifts, I am going to feel so good. I have also been keeping up on my strength training and working on my quads so that they are ready for all of the downhill running. I have been doing lots of wall-sits and squats and I have thrown in some ab circuits to strengthen both my abs and back.
Training has been going well overall, but I definitely cannot wait for fall. I'm coming up on a half marathon because I won a free entry courtesy of my friend Rachel and I'm getting excited about that! I will also be getting better about posting my training updates now that I have more free time!
