Hello folks. As I mentioned last week, I plan to keep up the training recap link up because it’s such fun. However, I had to give it a new name for me because I’m not actively training, I’m just in maintenance mode right now. 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 imagine I’ll run a few days a week for the next month or so before training gets going. 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 my first maintenance training recap!
Monday: 4.9 easy, slowish miles to see the Cherry Blossoms after work with Dawn. The crowds were out along with the blossoms and there was some speed in there to get around people. Boy did this help my legs – they were SO sore from the race the prior day.
Tuesday: Five easy, HUMID miles with my friend Jen. The weather made me really nervous about summer. Yikes.
Wednesday: 2 mile walk home.
Thursday: 2 mile walk to dinner in Columbia Heights.
Saturday: 3.3 easy miles to the Cherry Blossom Expo and then to lunch. It was super windy but I found it funny that both my runs were just about the same pace (9:46). I guess I’m consistent, which is good.
Sunday: Cherry Blossom Ten Miler! This was such fun and a lovely day and another PR. Full race recap to come, but it was great!
Total mileage for the week: 23.6 miles
Total mileage for the year: 392.68 miles
Is it spring yet in your neck of the woods? We are getting there with chilly mornings and awesomely nice afternoons!
