Hi friends. This week’s recap will be short and sweet. I am ready for this race – and ready for a little downtime before marathon training begins. As you know, 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: 5 easy miles to start the week.
Tuesday: I had an awesome workout. Caitlin rode her bike while I ran and it worked out great. I did 3×2 mile repeats. Each set of 2 mile repeats averaged 8:17/8:14/8:17. Ended up with 8.3 miles for the day and felt very strong.
Wednesday: Pure Barre class!
Thursday: 4 tempo-isn miles over lunch. It was HOT out there!
Friday: Another easy 5 miles – this time running with Caitlin.
Saturday: Back with my Saturday run group gals. Also – ran in a tank top and shorts and it felt like summer. Crazy! Just under ten miles for the day.
Sunday: Easy 8 miles with Deb to close out the week.
Total mileage for the week: 40.32 miles
Total mileage for the year: 262.03 miles
Total mileage for this training cycle: 385.58 miles
Can you believe March is basically here? This year is flying by!
