Week two is in the books and the Berlin Marathon is only 4 months away! That seems like a lot of time, but I know it will go quite quickly. This week was one of those long short weeks – you know one of those weeks where Friday takes forever to arrive? But all in all it was a good week of running and I continued to take advantage of the buildup in miles! You can find these training recaps each Sunday and please do join in the link up!
Here’s how the week shook out:
Monday: I was supposed to have the day off running but I needed to run a couple errands so I ran my errands. 1.25 mile run total – I picked up the pack I will take with me to Berlin, so that was fun!
Tuesday: 4.38 miles from work to (and including) the Whole Foods Run Club. Another fun run with that group!
Thursday: A 2.57 run commute TO work. This was the first time I’ve run to the office and I liked it – although it ended up being a bit stressful because I was running late for an appointment. But outside of that, it was nice!
Friday: We brought back the Pure Barre run club. Dawn and I ran a few miles and then immediately went to Pure Barre. Ouch! That class kicked our butts!! I’d forgotten how hard it is to run and then take barre immediately afterwards.
Saturday: Zooma Annapolis 10k! I love this race weekend and had SO much fun with my friends. We didn’t race it but ran relatively easy – not as easy as I’d planned, though. 54:38 final time, with an average pace of 8:48. That’s a bit faster than my goal marathon pace and it felt like work. I know some of that was hills but some of it was the fact that I’m just two weeks into training. I’m excited to continue to build fitness!
Sunday: 3.74 miles with Deb – we started a bit late (which was nice) but that meant it was HOT!
Total mileage for the week: 20.6 miles
Total mileage for this training cycle: 35.02 miles
Total mileage for the year: 540.22 miles
Anyone else race over the weekend? Tell me about it!
