Well, this isn’t my last pacing weekend for FOREVER, just for 2017… Since my marathon last month, I just haven’t gotten into a good groove with “training”. Since there isn’t too much I can “train for” between races, I have just been recovering, running when I can or have the motivation to, and “conserving my energy” for this weekend! At least that’s what I tell myself…
Did you check out my blog post last Friday about the open BibRave Pro applications? If you are reading this, you should probably check it out : )
Tuesday- 3 miles – Miss Pai and I went out for a short cold run down the street and back. While the chill is manageable, I sure wish we were going to have a “fall season”.
Wednesday- OFF – I packed up my workout bag for a lunch run…but just got busy at work and couldn’t get away… Happens sometimes! I think that if I had a set training plan, I would have been more set on getting away for a run, but I am just going with the flow until after this weekend’s event.
Thursday- 3.1 miles – Another morning that Miss Pai sweet talked me into bringing her with me for my morning run. Angie and I planned on our shorter 2.5 (or so) mile route and we were able to stretch it to a solid 5K.
Run and done! The @buff_usa cap and neck wrap may have been a bit much this 45 degree morning…but I can always take them off! Starting runs cold can be a bit intimidating…so I start warm and then remove layers or accessories as needed!! #buffusa @garminfitness #beatyesterday #bibchat • My goal for this months #TeamRER #PileOnTheMiles is to get back into a routine! I can say "My goal is to run 100 miles" but I am not sure that is the best bet for my success… A routine. A set training plan for my next big race. What are your goals for the month? @runeatrepeat #chasethebirdchallenge
Friday- OFF – Remember that bag that I packed on Wednesday – yep, still packed. So I grabbed it for a short lunch run…and the business of the workday didn’t allow for me to get away.
I should probably just get up in the morning…which might be a little easier starting next week!
Saturday- 8 miles – I set my mind to running one group run lap with the crew. Since the 6 mile meet up was about a mile from my house, this made it easy to get a little warm-up before trying to keep up with the other, faster runners : )
8 early morning miles ✔ • I have REALLY been slacking on running in the morning as of late…and the time change next week MIGHT make that easier. Only time will tell. #prerun @runeatrepeat #teamrer • All Of The Gear : @bocogear #bocogear @bibrave #bibchat @garminfitness #beatyesterday @buff_usa #buffusa @aftershokz #shokzsquad @knuckle.lights #seeandbeseen @rungum #rungum #chasethebirdchallenge
Sunday- 13.1 miles – Kansas Half Marathon, Lawrence, KS – pacing the 2:45
This morning ended up being a great day to run! While the first part of the race is straight uphill, I was able to bring my runners in just before 2:45 ❤❤ Thanks @kshalfmarathon for a great course and a beautiful day! • @bibrave #bibchat @buff_usa #buffusa @bocogear #bocogear @garminfitness #beatyesterday @oiselle

Next Week’s Projected Workouts
Next week starts another mini training cycle. I was given the opportunity to receive a race registration transfer from a friend for a KC trail race – the Alternate Chili Run. Yea, there is chili involved, but only once the race is finished (none of that “eat a bowl of chili each mile…or whatever). I have run the trails at the Wyandotte State Park before, but this course uses a different loop – the “winter loop” (versus the “summer loop” that I ran 3 times in August).
Tuesday- 2 miles
Wednesday- 4 miles
Thursday- 6 miles
Friday- 2 miles
Saturday- 8 miles
Sunday- 14 miles
Beyond this mini cycle and the next 50K cycle, I am thinking ahead to next fall (yeah, ALREADY). I am starting to plan my first 100 mile attempt at the Hawk! Same event as my first 50 miler this year…but longer (twice as long…and then some)… Oh boy.
Bring on the trails!
