Notice anything different about this training recap? First clue is the title. Yes, I’m still running Wineglass. But I knew I’d eventually have to pick either MCM or Wineglass as my fall goal race and choosing MCM just made since due to the fact that it’s three weeks after Wineglass. So I will use Wineglass as a long run while training for Marine Corps. It just makes sense!
This past week, I travelled a bit. I was in Boulder for three days and then out of town over the weekend. So I had to switch some things up but that happens over a training cycle.
Monday: three mile progression run. Hot and humid but a strong run.
Tuesday: travel day. I did some of my PT stretches but that’s it.
Wednesday: 4 miles in Colorado altitude and a visit to the Boulder Pure Barre.
Friday: 14 miles. I knew I’d be unable to run over the weekend so I planned to get in my long run on Friday. I didn’t get to bed Thursday until close to 1am after landing back in DC after 10pm but I still knew running Friday was my best bet. I met my buddy Jess for six miles and then did four more by myself for a total of ten. I took an afternoon Pure Barre class and then headed out for four more miles. That gave me 14 for the day.
Saturday / Sunday: rest days
The week was really solid with 23 miles and two Pure Barre classes. I’m proud that travel hasn’t derailed me.
How was your training last week?
