Hello from Chicago! I’m here for a few days this week for work and excited to get in at least one run while I’m here! 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 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 the maintenance training recap!
Monday: Rest. That was kind of the theme this week and I’m not mad about it. I know that the ONLY way I can train hard for my goal races is taking a solid break in between training cycles.
Tuesday: Barre 3 – a great way to start the day!
Wednesday: 3.2 run commute home with Caitlin. Much needed and felt great!
Friday: .6 mile warmup and then paced Kelly to a 5k PR at the Crystal City 5k series. 3.8 miles total. We did a little team photo shoot before the race and it yielded some awesome pictures, including the fierce one below of some of our local leaders.
Sunday: 4.6 easy miles with Chrissy. The weather was pretty perfect for running!
Total mileage for the week: 11.6 miles
Total mileage for the year: 404.28 miles
Have you ever had professional pictures taken of you in running gear? It’s kind of awesome!
