Week three of Berlin Marathon Training is in the books. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw that I spent the end of the week in California, celebrating my niece’s graduation from high school. We were in the suburbs, but surrounded by highways so I knew running would be a bit dicey. I set a goal to get in two runs while I was gone and I hit that goal – success! Remember that you can find these training recaps each Sunday and please do join in the link up!
Here’s how the week worked out:
Monday: 4 miles, with a stop to the Congressional Cemetery. I know it might sound weird, but it’s so peaceful to run there. I really love it. While the Congressional Cemetery is still an active, working cemetery, it also is an off-leash dog park. So it’s great to run there because I always get to see cute, well-behaved dogs. My kind of place!
Tuesday: 4.65 miles from work to (and including) the Whole Foods Run Club. Another fun run with that group! I wanted to take advantage of the run club because I won’t be able to attend for the next couple weeks.
Wednesday: Global Running Day! We celebrated with a fun Oiselle team run on the National Mall. 4 fun miles!
Thursday: Rest – flight to CA that took basically all day but it was worth it!
Friday: 3 easy in CA.
Saturday: 3 easy in CA.
Sunday: Rest – flight back home. Sad face.
Total mileage for the week: 19.22 miles
Total mileage for this training cycle: 51.24 miles
Total mileage for the year: 559.44 miles
Anyone else celebrate a graduation recently? I always get emotional seeing the graduates!
