Well, this week is going to be a busy one…or mostly this weekend is going to be BUSY. I am without a structured training plan for the next 5 weeks or so…so I am just going back through my taper plans week to week to keep miles on my legs. I have a lot of races coming up this fall to pace for…and I just want to keep up on my recovery while still running!
Monday- Due to some morning rain, I pushed my run to my lunch break. It was still wet, but not as bad as it would have been this morning!
Tuesday- A nice, cool morning interval run with Angie (7 miles) and an evening group run with little man in tow (2 miles)
Thursday- BURRR! We had a cold snap last night and this is my first 30 degree run…and it was a painful one too. Literally. I got new shoes and I wanted to start adding them into my shoe family…ouch! I have worn the same style before, but boy to these not feel great right now!
Friday- workout description
Saturday- Kansas City Half Marathon – pacing 2:55 – While I did great with keeping time, my group fizzled early. The ones that were prepared finished ahead of me and I worked hard at the finish to get as many pumped up to beat me in the final stretch!
Sunday- Rock & Roll St. Louis – just running to run! I can’t have too many expectations after putting miles on my legs the day before…but I put in a decent effort 🙂
Weekly Miles : 47 workout miles
1443 / 2,016 miles in 2016 – Yeah…I’m behind! But so what?! I’ll finish when I finish 😉
Next Week’s Projected Workouts
Yep! A full marathon weekend of running 🙂 This past weekend was more of a prep for the 50K in a few weeks than anything…or mostly poor planning on my part, ha!
This week will have some major foam rolling, yoga, and fun miles on the schedule 🙂 I’ll be leaving town on a jet plane on Friday… Weeee!
