While the rain tried to slow me down, I was still able to make a big dent in my running miles left this year! I nearly doubled my miles for the week over the weekend…love those early morning long runs and trail runs 🙂
Monday- I wanted to get in at least a part of my scheduled interval run before meeting up with Angie, so I set out about 45 minutes early. I needed more than an hour to get in the full workout, but at least I was able to get 4 of the 6 intervals completed! After that, Angie and I ran a little more than 6 miles together 🙂 – 10.5 total miles (25,538 steps)
Tuesday– no workout – darn weather kept me inside (no REAL excuse since I have a gym membership,…could have just gone there…). I can welcome a true rest day from time to time 🙂 (7,319 steps)
Wednesday– More rain…so no morning run. I was able to get away to head to the gym for my Power Lunch. After work and dinner, little man and I headed out for a walk/bike around the block 🙂 (10,075 steps)
Thursday– With the bad morning weather lately, I felt like I hadn’t run all week! So I took advantage of the nice morning and ran a couple more after running 5 with Angie – 8 miles total (22,691 steps)
Friday– Overnight rain and storms kept me in from running before my yoga session at the gym…but really now. I could have just got around early enough to go to the gym BEFORE class…but oh well. For another day…or later in the day!
I was able to enjoy a little bit of the nice weather over my lunch break – 4.5 miles (17,361 steps)
Saturday– Since the long run course was 6 miles and I wanted to go to the store after my run, I decided to drive to the group run meet up early, run one lap of the course, and then a second lap with the group. 12 hilly miles in the bag! (29,887 steps)
Sunday– I knew that I wanted to run the Konza trails Sunday morning…even though there was a running event planned along the course that morning.
I was able to get on the trail around first light (when the trail opens) – which was about 45 minutes before the race started. I was able to see some amazing sunrise views and really enjoyed my time alone…for the first 3-4 miles.
At that point, I was in the runners. I folded into the group and tried to stay to the right side of the trail so the faster runners could pass me without much issue.
Overall, I had a great 2 laps on the large trail and even got to run with a couple ladies that I run with on the weekends 🙂 Great job Mel (1st female in her age group), Sheryl (1st female in her age group), and Michelle (3rd place in her age group)!! – 12 miles (26,698 steps)
Weekly Miles : 49 miles (139.5K weekly steps; 19.9K daily steps)
1295 / 2,016 miles in 2016 (…getting closer!!)

Solid week of training, Lindsey! I love your picture running down the trail – beautiful and quiet scenery. I’m in my last week of taper and my marathon is on SATURDAY! I’m a little anxious but ready to get going. It’s going to be cool and rainy – that rain is just a stinker this year!
I love running the Konza trails ❤️ I am starting the taper for my first 1/2 of the fall, no crazies yet 😆
What a great wk of training. I am the same way when it rains I decide to take the day off, rather than going to the gym.
I am not sure what it is…days off are nice, but the gym just doesn’t woo me to come and run 😆
Everybody does need a rest day now and then. No shame in that. Wow! You did put a big dent in that yearly mileage this week! The Konza trail looks like an amazing place to run. You captured a great picture of you running into the sunrise. Thanks for linking, Lindsey!
I know, rest days are important for the mind and body…but it also gets in my head 😆 #alwaysmoving
Great Job!!! Rest Days are a must 🙂
Oh yes! My “rest days” mostly involve walking or yoga 😀
