Hi there! After being sidelined with the plague last week, I was happy to be feeling better this week and be able to get in some runs. I traveled a bit, and was able to get in a fun run in New York. As you may remember, I will still be running (and even doing a couple of races) in between now and when I start training for the Berlin Marathon. But I’ll primarily be focused on cross training and keeping my base level of running up. I’m running a few days a week before training gets going in a couple of weeks. In that spirit, I will continue to enjoy all of your training recaps, so please do keep linking up! This is a low-key link up, but if you participate regularly, link back to this blog. Now on to the maintenance training recap!
Tuesday: 5.8 morning miles with my friend Jen. It was fun to catch up and we had a nice, easy run.
Wednesday: About 3.2 with Caitlin. I accidentally paused my watch so I’m unsure of the exact mileage but I think 3.2ish is about right.
Thursday / Friday: rest.
Saturday: Sunday: 5.2 strong miles in Central Park in New York. Daniela was kind enough to take me on a fun morning run through the park before I left the City. It was a perfect day for a run and we had a blast.
Sunday: I had agreed to help pace my friend Deb to a sub-2 half at the Frederick Running Festival. I hopped in at mile 8, after spectating for a bit and then was able to run Deb in. And I was so proud of her because she did it! I love love love being able to run with friends. It was a great day. Just over 6 miles for the day.
Total mileage for the week: 20.24 miles
Total mileage for the year: 461.66 miles
Have you ever paced a friend in a race?
