This week is all about recovering from traveling and preparing for my first 50K on Saturday!
Most of the week was spent on tired, heavy legs…which got into my head a little and I started getting super nervous for the race on Saturday!
Well…my legs were one of the last things I needed to worry about…the weather was a bigger deal!
Monday- no workout…yeah, not a single Monday this month! That needs to change REAL fast!
Tuesday- A morning run (that should have happened Monday morning) to start the day!
Wednesday- Another morning with miles…good! Feeling yuck…
Thursday- Well, I took a hint from my body and took it easy the next couple days. Yes, I had every plan and intention to go run,…but my exhaustion and heavy legs needed me to slow down before the big day!
Friday- I wanted and planned to go to yoga in the morning,…but it just didn’t happen.
Saturday- Kansas Rails-To-Trails Fall Ultra Extravaganza – Prairie Spirit Trail 50K

I'm alive!! And upright!! 😆 • I had a great time running the KS Rails-to-Trails Prairie Spirit Trail 50k today!! The crew stops were awesome and yes, I super over prepared, but I didn't regret it a bit! • My dad was able to make it out to the Richmond turnaround, the 2nd Princeton stop, and the finish line!! ❤️ I loved seeing him get so excited for me!! • What next?? A bathroom break, quick @showerpill cleanup, change, eat, and find some cold water 😆 • #first #first50k #50k #railstotrails #prairiespirittrail #ultra #ultrarumner #runner #trail #trailnerds #nuunhydration #runhappy #garminrocks #beatyesterday #aftershokz #irun4aidennicole
Sunday- rest and relaxation

Next Week’s Projected Workouts
This week’s is all about helping my legs recover…and quickly!
While I didn’t go balls-to-the-wall in my first 50K, I did put a lot of time and distance on them! Soreness and old lady walking technique is bound to happen…but I have a little more running I. The coming weeks before I can start thinking about complete rest…
