Summer Weekly Workout #6 + some!





First of all, Paul had a lot of fun reading your comments yesterday! It was an honor to have him guest post, since I have been asking him to do it forever! See the thing is, Paul is really funny. He makes me laugh so hard, and I want to share his humor with you! Hopefully he will guest post for Meg Go Run again. Maybe he can have his own series... Paul Go Rant. He's good at rants!

On to the workouts!

Sorry, there are no flashy pictures this week. We've been away all week at Johns Hopkins for a week long test for Paul, so I wasn't feeling very picture-y. You get a bare bones post today. You know, the way the pilgrims used to blog.

Oh, and you also get a week + a few days!


Saturday-  8 mile hilly run @ 8:23 pace.

Sunday- Weird running/deck of cards workout you can read about here.

Monday- I ran to the gym! Read about it here.

Tuesday- Strength training- Back, biceps, and legs.


Wednesday-  5 mile run at who knows what pace because my Garmin was being annoying!

Thursday- REST!

Friday-  REST!

Saturday-  8 mile run @ 8:11 pace, upper body strength workout

Sunday-  REST!

Monday-  6.5 mile run @ 8:40 pace


Pros- My chaffing is healing! Wahoo! And three rests days in a ten day period!? My legs are saying, "Thank you!"

Cons- Laying around a hospital room all day really made my knee angry. Even though I had all those rest days, it does not like being stagnant. Daily walks to the cafeteria helped loosen it up.

If your legs could talk, what would they say to you right now? Would they ask you for a rest day? Do they want shaved?

    1. I haven't really blogged about it because it is depressing! Maybe I will update everyone in a few days or something, but seriously, talking about brain tumors and brain surgery is no fun. :(

    3. They are the BEST :) Seriously, Paul and I always talk about how our worries go away when Jelly jumps onto our laps.

  3. I hope Paul is okay after his tests and that he'll be getting out of the hospital soon! I am sure the kitties must miss him at home a lot.

  4. Sending you and Paul lots of good thoughts. And I think a "Paul Go Rant" series would be awesome.

    My legs would say "please stop crossing me, it hurts our knees!" Ugh...I totally feel you on sitting too long. It makes my legs ache!

  8. Wishing you and Paul all the best. Great weeks of workouts as always :) My legs are actually wishing I could have stretched after my run this a.m. managed 4 miles outside before 6 a.m. and got to work on time.
