Right after I finished the Shamrock Half Marathon (recap here), I realized that the Cherry Blossom Ten Miler was in two weeks. I decided that I would continue my training recaps as I look towards Cherry Blossom. My rough plan is to run easy – keep it light in training and then race Cherry Blossom in an effort to snag a new ten mile PR (I set a ten mile PR while running Shamrock, but that doesn’t count!).
Monday: Holy sore quads. I went to a Pure Barre class to work that out. It hurt so good. 🙂
Tuesday: 4 easy miles, 3 of those with Caitlin. It felt nice to run – my legs were still a bit tight but it was a really solid run.
Wednesday: Rest day.
Thursday: I was in New York for work and ran 3 miles in the morning before starting my work day. I hadn’t been in New York for awhile, so it was nice to run through a city I always enjoy.
Friday: Pure Barre run club! I ran to the studio and then we all had a great run. A bit shy of 4 miles for the day.
Saturday: A fun ten mile fun run around town to see the Cherry Blossoms with my girls. We had a blast dodging tourists and viewing blossoms. I mean, there were definite moments of “AHHHHH way too many tourists” because, I’m going to be honest, I love people but sometimes I hate people. No, but seriously, it was one of those days that I was just so grateful to live here in DC. I love this city and am reminded of that on days like this one.
Sunday: Easter Sunday = rest day.
Total mileage for the week: 20.6
Total mileage for the year: 396.23 miles
What does your week look like after you race?
