Weekly Workout

miles on miles | weekly workouts

Due to being a short work week with some pretty nice days, I ran more than I should have…but low, slow miles are good for the soul. Plus, little man got to enjoy more miles with me on the road and trail than ever before! A lot of fun in the warmer November sun…

weekly workouts

Monday- OFF
“Rest days” are no fun when the weather is nice…trust the training, trust the training…

Tuesday- 2 miles 4 miles
I saved my energy for the group run tonight…it was still a little chilly, but nothing a blanket and gloves couldn’t help with! Little man didn’t care for the cold (or listening to mom) very much…

Wednesday- 4 miles
I planned on running in the morning…but that just didn’t happen. Then I thought I would run over lunch, but the hubs work had their Thanksgiving lunch…so I pushed it back a little more. I decided that since I had the stroller in my car, I would run over to little man’s daycare to pick him up, and then run back to work to get my car…but it got dark…FAST. Note to self : always have a headlamp handy!

Thursday- 4 miles 5 miles
Happy Thanksgiving! I planned on going to the group run, but the alarm that woke me up was at 6 am – the starting time of the group run. Whoops! I brought my running clothes to our family lunch and planned on going out sometime after the meal settled… Success!

Friday- 2 miles 6 miles
So the weather today is amazing…so I decided that little man and I were going to go on my long run today! Hello 70s at the end of November – yes, please! It also helps that I don’t have a babysitter today…so I can’t go in to work…which makes a great day to play hookie and go to our favorite donut shop!

Saturday- 8 miles 6 group run miles
Since I have a “race” next weekend, I decided that I could let up on my miles some this weekend. One group run loop it is! The weather was cool, but felt good!

Sunday- 12 miles nearly 6 miles
While I planned on going for a mid-morning run, the time flew and it ended up being a late morning, early afternoon run…as long as I was home before the hubs wanted to go out for a couple hours. Rather than heading to the Konza (rolling, grassy hills) or Fancy Creek (the terrain I wanted to run on – rocky, hilly, rough), I decided to just head to thee closer river trail. While I did get some trail miles, they were not quite the difficulty I was looking for today. Either way, trails are trails and worth all the time!

Weekly Miles : 32 miles
2032 / 2,017 miles in 2017

Next week is supposed to start my next training cycle for the Run Toto Run 50K at Wyandotte Park, KS at the end of February. Since I have a 10 mile race planned this coming weekend, the schedule is a little different than planned (short a few miles), but it will all work out in the end! 

Monday OFF
Tuesday 2 miles
Wednesday 4 miles
Thursday 3 miles
Friday 2 miles
Saturday Alternate Chili Run 10 miler

  1. How exciting to begin training for a 50k! Your weather looks like it was all over the place this week. I must say I love the way you improvised with the calf sleeve to hold your phone. Clever. Thanks for linking!
