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
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
Another morning, another mile! • We didn't let a closed sidewalk slow us down, we changed directions and set a new path. Some days, you just need to roll with the punches! • #sweatpink @FitApproach #RuntasticFitness #RFCFallFit @Runtastic @lifelikelunden #HealthUpYourHolidays @DesignerProtein #designerprotein #RERmiles #owntherun #irun4aidennicole
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)
An amazing morning for a run!! • The @kshalfmarathon had a beautiful course, good volunteers, and great company! God works in mysterious ways – and he brought me an awesome group of ladies to run with and they live in Manhattan!! What are the odds?! • I paced the 2:45 group and finished at 2:44:53 – I would have waited a couple seconds later but there was no one behind us for a long way. I even jumped back in the trenches to bring one of the runners from my core group – they all kicked butt!! • #kshalfmarathon #halfmarathon #smartpacing #pacer #keepittight #brooksrunning #garminrocks #makeithappen #owntherun #RERmiles #irun4aidennicole
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!
