Eek! The race is done and I have great news – I crushed my goal and got a new PR! A full race recap will be up later this week, but a preview is below. Each week during this training cycle, I have shared how my training went and what the week looked like. I did 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 helped keep me accountable when I knew I’d 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 – I’ve enjoyed reading about everyone’s training so much that I think I will keep the training recaps going for the next few weeks. While I won’t be officially training again for a couple months, I’ll still be running some (and even doing a bit of racing) and I love reading recaps so we will just keep this thing going!
Monday: An easy 3 mile run commute from work. It was fun to run home and the bonus of daylight savings is that it doesn’t get dark until later.
Tuesday: Almost 2 mile run commute to the new Whole Foods in my hood. I’m slightly obsessed.
Wednesday: Rest day!
Thursday: I added an additional rest day since this was race week.
Friday: 6.11 easy miles with Dawn – it was fun to catch up – we hadn’t run together in awhile so I appreciated the chance!
Saturday: Very easy three mile shakeout run to get race ready.
Sunday: 13.71 – a warm up + the race. Like I said, look for a race recap later, but for your preview see below!
So freaking happy. Ran the whole way with this gal & got that PR! 1:50:21 and I am thrilled. A great race and so grateful to @jackiegruendel and @heartandsole_colleen coming out to cheer!! I can’t believe I just hit this goal. Thank you all for the support! An epic nap will happen today!! #oiselleteamdmv
