A slow-going week of running… I don’t want to push by body too hard, just gauge how my legs are feeling early in the week to be sure they are ready for Sunday’s half marathon 🙂
Monday- back to the working grind after a busy weekend…no workout
Tuesday- a couple easy morning miles to get my legs moving and blood pumping – also, a couple easy afternoon miles with the Brew Group Run
Wednesday- no workout – my running buddy wasn’t feeling well and I decided to sleep in; I didn’t get in a running lunch either due to projects keeping tied to the building…
Thursday- a nice morning run with Angie
Friday- morning yoga
Saturday- no morning miles – or anytime miles 🙂 keeping legs fresh for Sunday morning!
Sunday- Kansas Half Marathon, Lawrence, KS (pacing 2:45)
Weekly Miles : 24 workout miles – not something to write home about on an average week, but this was no average week! I ran a 50K last Saturday…24 miles sounds great!!
1533 / 2,016 miles in 2016
Next Week’s Projected Workouts
Again…a broken record, I am just trying to keep moving! It is hard for me to find motivation to run in the mornings now that my training cycle isn’t telling me what I SHOULD be doing… I just want to beat the alarm a few days and enjoy the sunrises!

Sounds like a great week!
I had to remind myself to STOP running today, lol; that I WASN’T training for something! Then again, ask me in week when the sky is dark and the air cold how I feel.
I’m training for Route 66 Marathon (Nov. 20)….so I’m TaPeRiNg 😉 How exciting for you to pace a group for the half! I’d love the opportunity to do that sometime 😉
It is an awesome opportunity 😀😀
What a cool medal I love the huge sunflower!!! I would say you were spot on with your pace group!!!
Yeah! They were really happy with how they finished and o was glad to find new running buddies 😊😊

I think your mileage this week is very impressive coming off your 50k! I love the sunflower metal from your half. You did an excellent job with your pacing! Other than monitoring your pace on your watch, do you use anything else to help you get so close? Thanks for linking Lindsey!
We use Smart Pacing techniques, so we take the first 3 miles at a slower pace, take the up hills easier, and take the downhills a little harder… Once we get in a groove, I just check my watch to be sure we aren’t going too fast or too slow to make our mile splits 😀 Talking to the runners also helps keep their mind off the pace and helps them trust me.
