This was a great week of running! Not a great week for my foot pain and blisters…but that comes with the territory, I guess. I decided to rally with a fellow RTY2016 member to run, walk, crawl 10 miles for 10 days… I made it through the week, but didn’t get the miles on Saturday. Oh well, I made a great effort to help someone else try to meet their goals 🙂
Marathon Training – Week 10
rest walk day
I do not do well with rest days…so the little man and I went on a long, WINDY walk to Orange Leaf for some frozen yogurt! The hubs met us there and took us back home after 🙂
Monday- 8 miles – interval run + 3 miles east pace
I did the semi-crazy thing to volunteer to run-walk-crawl 10 miles for 10 days with a few other #2016in2016 members. Well, I just ended my interval run (10 minute warm up, 1k@10K pace-75 second rest x5, 10 minute run) a decent distance from home and just took an easy run home.
At lunch, I went for a relaxing 3 mile walk (with a leap for the day!).
Tuesday- 5.2 miles – easy paced run
I got up in plent of time to get my run in for the day. I spent the 70+ minutes talking with the Lord about my mom’s situation…
4.5 miles – “easy” paced run (but faster than usual…)
I was able to get away for a lucky run as well – just some time to clear my head.
Since I was a little short on my 10 miles for the day, I walked in place for 0.4 miles in the evening while the little man played outside 🙂
Wednesday- threshold run + easy miles
Threshold run (10-10-10) followed by 5 miles of easy paced running – no thoughts, just running…
Some runs are just a time to clear your mind. That is exactly what this run was for. I wrote a letter to my mom (in my head of course), I talked to my dad (in my head), and pleaded with the Lord for the strength and understanding to deal with difficult situations in my life…
“rest” easy run
Neighborhood running at its finest!
Friday- 10 mile – easy run
I had that happy-dance moment when I checked my watch close to home…expected it to say 8.5 miles, but it said 9.5 miles!! Bonus!! Then 400 miles badge…double bonus!!
Saturday- 5.5 mile – easy run
An easy paced stroller run…cut short. Oh well.
