The week started chilly and rainy…and finished with some pretty nice weather – the warmth isn’t always great for races, but we survived!
Monday- A wet start to the day made me want to run in the sunshine in the afternoon ❤❤
Tuesday- Another day, another run! I wanted to be sure to get out this morning for some miles – there is MORE RAIN coming in and I don’t want to get washed away! Started with the scheduled interval workout, the last interval was NOT at an interval pace, but then followed up with some low HR miles 🙂
Wednesday- A lazy morning meant I was getting out for a lunch run! A little rain couldn’t slow me down – I was just glad I remembered my hat! I started feeling great – but then around mile 2, I started feeling a total lack of energy…I wanted to phone it in, but I had enough time to walk back to work.
Thursday- Bring on the chill Mother Nature!! Tomorrow morning is going to be even colder – in the low/mid 30s…then Saturday/Sunday morning is going to start in the 50s for both of my weekend races. Talk about craziness… Since the weather was nice and dry for the past day, I decided to take on the trail over m y lunch break for a little bit today 🙂
Friday- Another morning run – it is finally easy to get up in the morning! Want to know what is odd? I am more ready to get up and wake up with my first alarm if I was up later than usual the night before… Odd! I generally go to bed between 9-9:30 pm…but I was up packing for this weekends double-duty running weekend, and I didn’t get to bed until after 10 pm. The alarm went off and I was up and ready to run! I wish this would happen with the usual sleeping times…
Saturday- Rock The Parkway half marathon – A chilly, windy start…and I brought in my runners in at 2:40:02.5 for the 2:40 group! Win!
Sunday- GO! St. Louis half marathon – one of the Pacers didn’t show, so the pacing coordinator asked if I wanted to pace 2:20. I said no because that would be too much effort for me to be an effective pacer…and then from conversations the rest of Saturday evening, I decided to make my goal for the race to come in at 2:20. And I did it!! 2:19 ❤
Weekly Miles : 61 miles
753 / 2,017 miles in 2017
Next Week’s Projected Workouts
Next week is going to be a good one…hopefully! I am only 2 weeks out from my first time pacing a marathon (the Garmin Marathon) and I am feeling good! I have my last “long run” on Saturday – but I hardly feel like 6-8 miles is a “long run”…all perspective I guess.
