Weekly Workout

the in-between… | Weekly Workouts

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 🙂

Weekly Workouts

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

It all starts with one step • This morning was my first post 50k run, and it felt great! • While a 50k was not what I trained for this summer, my marathon training, interval training, and Smart Pacing paid back big time! Taking my paces slow and steady and then transitioning into intervals at around mile 13 kept me from completely trashing my legs (which is what happened at my first marathon). • Also, the best runner-car interaction in a long time. I usually feel like vehicles are racing me to the intersection…so then they don't have to wait an extra 5 seconds for me to pass… Today, a truck stopped for easily 15-20 seconds to give me the street WAY before I even got to it. I was very thankful – must be a runner or the family of one 😜 (I am choosing to think on the WAY positive side – could have been the complete opposite and been a different situation) • #sweatpink #RuntasticFitness #RFCFallFit @fitapproach @runtastic @lifelikelunden #HealthUpYourHolidays @DesignerProtein #designerprotein #RERmiles #irun4aidennicole

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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

    1. 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.
