I got a tad behind on the regular schedule with the training log post, but I’m about 99.99% certain that no one a) noticed or b) cared. Ha. Last week was filled with a lot of easy running and one race! I didn’t have any workouts, which was SUCH a nice break. I was able to taper a little bit for my race and recover afterwards.
Here is what my training looked like the week of 07.02.18 – 07.08.18:
Monday – Easy: 8 miles (9:10 pace)
The week started with an easy loop with Daniel and three more miles on my own.
Tuesday – Easy: 7 miles (8:59 pace)
Tuesday morning I ran some hills (588 feet of climbing) with Daniel and Kenny. I was trying to get it pretty easy since I was racing the next day.
Wednesday – RACE: 10 miles (7:12 pace)
I ran a 4 mile race on the Fourth of July! Recap is HERE.
Thursday AM – Easy: 7 miles (9:26 pace) + PM – Easy: 5 miles (9:35 pace)
Thursday morning I ran some more hills (630 feet of climbing) with Daniel and Kenny. The guys did a workout, but I just trailed behind them and ran easy since I had raced the day before. I did an easy loop with Mollie Thursday evening, which was lovely! The humidity was actually lower than normal and it was one of those runs that makes you think that fall is right around the corner (I know it’s not, but it was still fun to think about it :)).
Friday – Easy: 5 miles (9:12 pace)
I did a solo easy loop Friday morning. I love this Hippie Runner tank, but I didn’t do what it said and I also wouldn’t recommend it for a super sweaty run (it’s a blend of cotton and polyester).
Saturday – Easy: 10.2 miles (9:04 pace)
Saturday morning was a fun, female dominated group run! At one point there were seven of us running together. We are usually highly outnumbered by the guys in the group, so this was a nice little change (and definitely no offense to the guys in our group, because we have a wonderful group of guys!).
Sunday – Easy: 13.1 miles (8:50 pace)
Sunday’s group run turned into a casual little half marathon. That wasn’t our intent, but once we hit 13 miles, it just seemed right to make it a half marathon.
Total – 65.3 miles
That’s it for now! Have a great week!
