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.

I have some friends who ran that St Louis Marathon on Sunday. Kudos to you for being a great pacer and having a great week!
Yeah!! There were a few Oiselle ladies on the course ❤❤
I love how you were grinding this week Lindsey – despite the weather you got it all done anyway! 61 miles is so very very impressive and should give a great confidence!
I love the glow in the night safety straps! Safety first! Smart running running girls!
Have a great training week!
Thanks! The rain isn’t fun, but without lightening, it is totally doable- I haven’t melted yet 😂😂 I always try to be safe…the hubs almost hit a runner A) on the street, B) running WITH traffic, C) NO reflective gear, and D) wearing all black and expecting drivers to see her!! Nerve wracking…
It’s crazy that your in shorts and tshirts in some photos and wearing gloves in others! What’s going on with the weather there?
The weather has been crazy!! But we should be having some warm mornings for a bit…and I probably just jinxed it…
You got a lot of great runs in this week!
Oh yes! Exciting!
Congrats on a solid week!

Nice work – 61 miles for the week is no joke!
It is a lot of slow and steady miles…no sore legs makes me want to run forever!!
