A new week! My running buddy has some major taper miles this week…so we shall see how the miles go! My next pacing event is this coming weekend – so I will be cutting back just a little as well.
These next few weeks are going to fly by and Hospital Hill is going to be here before I know it! While this mini-training cycle is set for the HH weekend, my 50-mile training cycle has started as well! The miles are super low at this point, so I will jump right in the first full week of June 🙂
Monday- A little tired from the busy weekend, but we made some miles happen!
Tuesday- Well, morning thunderstorms in the area kept me home before work…so I headed out for an early lunch run.
The heat is here and here to stay…so I need to remember to keep water with me at all times and keep a snack in case I am not feeling great in the heat. Phew…not loving the humidity!
Wednesday- Another morning run missed…but not an unproductive morning! I made my lunch, I cleaned the dishes,…and I played on my phone 🙂
For lunch, I hit the trails again!…but the weather had to make it interesting. I changed and got ready to head out…and a random thunderstorm popped up around 10-15 miles away, and of course, is heading right for us. I waited out the storm and was finally able to go for a run over an hour later than I wanted to…
But it was all worth it! The breeze was cool, otherwise it was a balmy, sunny 75 degree run – which I can’t poopoo on because unless I am running at 5:30am, I may not have similar temps in the mid-afternoon for a LONG time.
Thursday- Spring time brings rain…and lots of it in this area! We are expecting more rain in the coming hours and days – thus the gloomy afternoon run. While the temps were reasonable in the 60s, the humidity left more to be desired. I’ll take what I can get!
Friday- While I should have ventured out in the morning, I decided instead to do the dishes and laundry… #momlife
Rather, I dodged between rain events to get in a quick afternoon run…or at least I thought I was dodging them! I got caught in sprinkles around mile 3.5 and rain a little over mile 4… Whatever, I survived getting a little wet!
Saturday- The Bill Snyder Highway Half was a wet one for sure! But it was the perfect temp for the runners! Great day!
Sunday- Little man and I decided to get out for a walk…nothing exciting since I slept in and took it EASY today.
Weekly Miles : 40 miles
933 / 2,016 miles in 2016
Next Week’s Projected Workouts
I am 2 weeks out from Hospital Hill weekend!! I am getting nervous for those crazy hills – since I haven’t had my training maxing out due to my thyroid stuff, I hope that I can get in some speed or hill workouts this coming week!
I should be starting my 50M training plan this week…but I am really just going to play it by ear…I am going to keep my base going for the next few weeks with longer weekend training runs. Exciting!!

Great week – I love all the pacing you do. Such a great way to give back!
Totally! I don’t have to focus on me and it keeps me running to stay in shape 😀😀
Great miles for the week! You are well on your way to hit that yearly mileage. I tried last year and did not come even close so I am not even trying this year. I feel like not setting that goal I will not get disappointed in myself when I do not reach it…haha.
I made it to 1700 solo miles last year…and I took quite a bit of time off during the summer. I have some big races this fall, I am hoping those keep me on track!
Your weekly posts always inspire me to get out and run! I love it!
