This past week I was working in Chicago and didn’t have the greatest week but did manage to get in most of my workouts. 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: 3.7 easy miles. I had a tiny bit of time before I had to get to the airport to head to Chicago for work so I got in what I could.
Tuesday: Geez. I had a miserable treadmill run. 3 miles at 8:20 pace plus a warm up mile. It was awful and I had to step off the treadmill multiple times – so hard. I’m not sure what was up with me that morning but I was not happy. Sometimes it’s just a bad run…
Wednesday: Rest day is the best day!
Thursday: 5 miles by feel – the weather was FREEZING in Chicago – 14 degrees with a real feel of -3 so I just ran by feel.
Friday: After a very long day at work Thursday, I decided to sleep in a bit and did not run.
Saturday: Twelve miles with my DC running group – this run flew by and the 9:43 pace felt great.
Sunday: Ten very HILLY miles out in Woodbridge, VA. At a 9:02 pace, at that. I also napped for two hours later in the day. It was glorious.
Total mileage for the week: 35.02 miles
Total mileage for the year: 186.21 miles
Total mileage for this training cycle: 309.76 miles
How was your week? Anyone have a race coming up?
