Last week was a bit rough – but this week was MUCH better. I just was on my game, running-wise and mentally and that felt great. I also had an incredible weekend, including participating in the Women’s March here in DC and I am just in a much better headspace. Anyway, on the this week’s half marathon 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’ve started a weekly link up for Training Recaps – let’s support each other as we train this winter! Please do link up!
Monday: 6 easy miles with Caitlin. Really really fun!
Tuesday: Another treadmill workout. 6×800 with 400m recovery. 1% incline and the 800 were at 7.2 mph. So hard but a great workout!
Wednesday: Rest day is the best day!
Thursday: Tempo Thursday! Five pretty perfect tempo miles plus warm up and cool down – 7 total miles for the day.
Friday: It was a holiday in DC and my office was closed, so I ran my long run. Ten miles out on my favorite trail. Really excellent run!
Saturday: No running but walked about 8 miles while participating in the Women’s March. It was an incredible day and a wonderful experience. We were all sore from the marching!
Sunday: Oiselle team run! Since we had Sally and Lesko in town for the March, we organized a team run. Ended up running 8 glorious miles with a wonderful group of gals. Such joy!
Total mileage for the week: 37.47 miles
Total mileage for the year: 104.19miles
Total mileage for this training cycle: 227.74 miles
How was your week? Did you enjoy the short week (if you had off on Monday)?
