Weekly Workout

go time! | Weekly Workouts

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!

Weekly Workouts

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

Sunday- rest and relaxation

Weekly Miles : 42 workout miles

1510 / 2,016 miles in 2016

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…

  1. Congrats on the race! The medal is awesome! Even though you didn’t have as much activity during the week as you wanted, I bet that worked to your advantage in giving your body (especially your legs) some rest prior to your 50K.


  2. Congratulations!! How exciting to be an ultrarunner! Enjoy your recovery! I’m looking forward to completing my first 26.2 in Philly in a couple of weeks 🙂


  3. Congratulations on your first 50k race! I’m so happy to read your Dad was there to share in your incredible accomplishment! Is that a medal or a belt buckle? It’s very nice with the brassy finish either way. Hope you have gotten some rest this week! Thanks for linking, Lindsey!


    1. Thanks! I was SO surprised that he came out 🙂 I loved having him there for the last 3 main stops, gave me something to drive me forward! It is a finishers “buckle”…I guess that is how ultra marathons work 🙂 Now I need a “buckle rack” or “buckle hangers”…? If that is such a thing!


    1. I didn’t push hard and just enjoyed the day! I drank HTWO the days leading up, day of, and days after…I’m not completely sure how it works (my hubs thinks it is a load of crap) but I was able to start miles within a couple days – and I ran a half last weekend 😜
