Y’all we are just two weeks out from the Richmond marathon and so this week’s Richmond Marathon Training Recap is focused on keeping my legs fresh and cross training. After my week of major miles last week, I wanted to take it easy and rest my still tweaky knee but still get in some miles this week. Here’s how it went:
Tuesday: barre class that kicked my butt, followed by my group run that I lead each week. Ran about 3 miles total, at a relaxed pace.
Thursday: 4 miles at a sub ten minute mile pace.
Friday: barre class that was amazing and relaxing and challenging all at the same time. Loved it!
Sunday: 4 mile run + 5k race. I had initially intended to run more miles but it was so blistery and windy out, I had a hard time getting out the door so I was only able to get in 4 and change before the Race to End Women’s Cancer 5k that I ran.
It was a solid week and I’m looking forward to running in one of my favorite places because I’m heading to Charlottesville, VA this upcoming weekend. Yay!
edited to add: I’ve had a couple folks ask about my sweet new shoes (pictured above). They are adidas Boost Glide 6s AND right now adidas is having a secret sale so you can snag some for free! Click here for the secret sale: adidas Boost – Save 20-50%. The sale ends tomorrow night – so move quickly. Sadly, I bought my new shoes BEFORE the sale began. Boo. But you can take advantage of it!

Congrats to all the NYCM runners! Who else raced this past weekend??
