Week two of my B&A Trail Half Marathon training is in the books. This week was fun because I got to experience multiple seasons during my different runs. If you are on the east coast, you know what I mean! Each week during this training cycle, I will share how my training went and what the week looked like. I do this because: 1) I love reading about how other folks train and 2) it’s great for me to have a record of what I did each week. Also, honestly, it helps keep me accountable when I know I’ll be writing about it. I also post almost all of my runs on Instagram as well. I’m starting a weekly link up for Training Recaps – let’s support each other as we train this winter! Please do link up!
Monday: Easy 4 + Pure Barre after work.
Tuesday: Track Tuesday! 6×800 with a goal time of 4:07 for each 800 – I came in at 4:05/4:03/4:13/4:04/4:00/4:05. With a warm up and cool down, I ran about 6.5 miles total.
Wednesday: Rest day is the best day!
Thursday: Tempo Thursday! Three tempo miles in ridiculous temperatures and wind. My Instagram picture that day says it best…
Friday: Easy four with Dawn – cold but not nearly as bad as Thursday.
Saturday: Oh dear. Saturday was a hot mess. No, scratch that. It was a COLD, freezing mess. Ice blanketed the city and so each step was a challenge. However, Leeanne, Christina and I got in just under 6 miles. And boy did I earn the nap I took later that day.
Sunday: Easy six with my buddy Katie – the miles flew by as we caught up!
Total mileage for the week: 32 miles
Total mileage for the year: 1370 miles
Total mileage for this training cycle: 61.9 miles
What was your weather like this week? Did you also experience spring, summer, winter and fall? 🙂
