Weekly Workout

Run Toto Run 50K w6 | training for 100M

Welcome to 2018!

While this is the first full training week of 2018, I am already into week 6 of my 50K training!

Want to know a secret?!

I haven’t signed up for the race that I am training for… BAH! I am not sure why I haven’t bit the bullet clicked the mouse yet – maybe I just want to see how winter running will treat me this year…maybe I am just SCARED. Probably a bit of both. The Wyco Trails are nothing to mess around with and I don’t have much time or ability to train on them… Nerves certainly have the best of me, for now.

Check back with me in a week or so to see if I have signed up yet… **face palm**

Any YouTube running movie suggestions?! I am going to need more for these long runs on the treadmill…

weekly workouts : week 6 (jan 1)

Monday- OFF
Off off off…it is cold outside…and I have a lovely hangover… It isn’t often that I drink (or let along drink to excess) but the kiddos were having a slumber party and the adults indulged a little…too much from my feelings today… Oh well. A rest day is VERY welcome in my life today : ) Happy New Year!!

Tuesday- miles
A lazy morning left me to running the trails over lunch – a cool, brisk 25*F (real feel : 15*F) kept me moving and trying to keep warm!

Wednesday- miles (2:1 intervals) 5.5 miles
With the intention of running in the morning…I slept in. Always. Since I needed 6 miles today, I decided to try for intervals again – at least I know I can get 5 or so with that workout.


Thursday- miles (easy)
YYAAAASSSS!! I was FINALLY about to get out the door for a morning run IN THE ELEMENTS!! Yeah, it almost didn’t happen…I snoozed the alarm as many times as I could… Then I had a realization that I can’t run intervals again today AND my clothes are already laid out… So I got up, got dressed, let the dog out, fed all the animals, second guessed my decision again…let the dog back in, and headed out the door. BRRR! Dig Deep!

Friday-2 miles 18 miles (long run at the gym)
Yep, another Friday morning long run in the books! Next weeks 20 might be a little more interesting…but we’ll take one day at a time : ) Any YouTube running movie suggestions?! I need more suggestions…

Saturday- 18 miles OFF
I planned on trying to get in the 2 miles from Friday sometime today…but it was cold and I didn’t want to take little man out in it. Oh well…

Sunday- 10 miles 10 miles (long run, outside)
Rather than FREEZE on Saturday morning, my running buddy and I decided to hit the road in more than triple the temps today! It was 45 degrees today!!

Weekly Miles : 43.6 miles
Training Miles : 223 miles
Annual Miles : 43.6 miles (goal = 2,018 in 2018)

Did you see my post this past week about my goal for this year?! Yep…one goal. That’s it! One BIIIIGGG goal! Here’s to a busy year of running and balance ❤ Thank you Run Gum for keeping a pep in my step through training and Nick Symmonds for the inspiration to build my own path for the year for this monster of a goal 🙂 #buildthepath #rungum

  1. You are a machine!! Seriously though you’re very dedicated and great about juggling workouts to get all the miles in. You’ve got this 100 miler! It’ll be work but I think you have what it takes for success!! Go get it!!
    (Will you please post your running YouTube movie ideas and any others that readers share??)
