This time next week I’ll be sharing how I did on my goal race for this winter (technically spring since spring starts on the 20th). Check back later this week for my goals for this race! 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 coming up on Sunday), 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: 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: Snow! We had a bit of snow + ice, which made me change my plans. I ran for 5 miles and ran fast when I could and slowed down on the parts of the trail that were covered in ice. I’m still disappointed that we didn’t have one snow storm that was serious enough for me to use my Yaktrax. Boo!
Wednesday: Rest day!
Thursday: I was supposed to run my final tempo run. But. I slept HORRIBLY the previous night and just needed more rest. So I didn’t run. This might be the second time I’ve skipped a run this training cycle that wasn’t due to my surgery or the funeral I went to. Grace, right?
Friday: I got to run with my bud (and former Friday Five co-host) Cynthia! We had such fun running downtown and catching up. It had been WAY too long. Plus Pure Barre after work – a real butt kicker, too!
Saturday: 8.5 comfortable miles with my Saturday run crew. The miles felt easy and the company was wonderful. A great run.
Sunday: 3.6 easy with Caitlin to end the week. Y’all I am READY TO RACE! 🙂
Total mileage for the week: 25.36 miles
Total mileage for the year: 341.65 miles
Total mileage for this training cycle: 465.2 miles
Spring races are starting – anyone have any big ones coming up?
