New Week, New start!
This is the first week that I am going to start my workouts Monday through Sunday…since I didn’t do anything this past Sunday, nothing was missed!
Sunday- no workout
Monday- 2.2 easy lunch miles
While I call them “easy miles” the warmer summer months are not going to make these runs “easy”… I am trying to keep a steady pace these next couple weeks at the cadence I want to run when I pace Bill Snyder next weekend. This was a good run!
Tuesday- 4 mile interval morning run
I am so glad that I found a running friend that is just as motivated as me to keep up our running and fitness! Thank you Mel for getting me out of bed (virtually) this morning! I hope that it will not be a difficult task in the future… While intervals are not fun, the variation in pace is a nice change. I rode my bike to a cousins house (to check it out before my LONG ride for the #UnitedRelay next week) and then started my run! I stayed close to our house and just went up and down and around the neighborhood 🙂
Wednesday- 4.25 mile lunch run
I didn’t get around much this morning…and I postponed my workout until lunch time…which was then a late lunch due to just being plain busy…life.
Thursday-4.25 mile lunch run
While today was another warm one, the breeze really helped keep me cooler and the sun didn’t bother me as much.
Friday- no workout – but I still got my 10K steps in between sitting at a desk job, sitting in a car for 2 hours, and relaxing before the race in the morning. Sure, I would have liked to get a couple shake out miles in, but you can’t win them all!
Saturday- 13.1 miles – solo pacing the 3:00 Scout Strong Challenge Half Marathon in Kansas City
Sunday- no workout – just relaxing, stretching, and driving
Weekly Miles : 29 miles
701 / 2,016 miles in 2016
This Week’s Projected Workouts
Another week down! One more to go… In this next week, I am going to try and mix up my routine with more foam rolling, stick rolling, yoga, and an extra hills workouts – I usually save my hilly workouts for the weekend, but that is already on the docket!
Bill Snyder Highway Half – May 21st : co-pacing 2:30

It was a great week for sure!
Great job on your wk of workouts. I have a friend that keeps me motivated for my long runs. Love your watch. I wanted to splurge on that one. But can’t justify it bc my old Garmin works just fine. I do however have a momentum bracelet that I love. They are so comfortable.
Thanks! I am glad to have a few running friends and acquaintances that motivate me to get out and run 🙂 I love all Garmins!
Awesome job of your week of workouts- mine week was crazy, I need to step up my game!
I am surely lacking on some workouts – I need to write up an actual plan instead of flying by the seat of my pants 😆
It must be rewarding to help someone finish a difficult half marathon. I know she appreciated having you by her side. Congratulations on 700 miles to date in 2016! That’s truly fantastic. Thanks for linking with us Lindsey!
Looks like a great week of running! I would love to pace a half. I look forward to reading about your experience!
Thanks! I am really enjoying the pacing gigs 😀 I am still putting 13.1+ miles on my legs, but my recovery is quick since I am not running it at full tilt.
