Happy New Year! I hope everyone welcomed in 2017 safely and with loved ones. We were home watching football (Roll Tide!) and I have to say, NYE in sweats is kinda my jam! Anyway, on the this week’s training recap. Each week during this training cycle (I’m training for the B&A Trail Half Marathon – a relatively small, rails to trail half in March), I will share how my training went and what the week looked like. I do this because: 1) I love reading about how other folks train and 2) it’s great for me to have a record of what I did each week. Also, honestly, it helps keep me accountable when I know I’ll be writing about it. I also post almost all of my runs on Instagram as well. I’m starting a weekly link up for Training Recaps – let’s support each other as we train this winter! Please do link up!
Monday: An easy five miles in the early evening. I much prefer running in the morning but it got done.
Tuesday: The track was closed so I did my speed work on the trail instead. It was 55 degrees and I hit all my paces for my 4×1200 repeats.
Wednesday: Pure Barre.
Thursday: Tempo Thursday! My friend Leeanne joined me to help me pace my tempo run. The average pace was around 8:25, which is much better than previous weeks – I wasn’t running too fast and feeling like I was going to pass out! Success. I also went to Pure Barre.
Friday: Easy five with friends!
Saturday: No rain or ice on a long run, yay! Ten really solid miles on New Year’s Eve.
Sunday: Happy New Year! I woke up not really wanting to run but got in a handful of miles anyway. Because that’s what it’s about, right? 3.5 easy.
Total mileage for the week: 37.15 miles
Total mileage for the year: 3.5 miles
Total mileage for this training cycle: 127.05 miles
Have a lovely day and be sure to link up if you are training!
