This week has been a hodgepodge of temps…morning chill and afternoon warmth midweek opened up a few shorter double days. Bring on the spring warmth!! Too bad it only lasted a few days…but spring is coming soon!
I am only a week away from my next 50K – a 50K that is going to put some major stress on my running/hiking skills since I didn’t hit the more technical trails at all this cycle… : ) So exciting!
weekly workouts : week 12 (feb 12)
Tuesday- 4 miles
Oh my goodness…while I am a morning runner, when the afternoon temps are going to be in the 50s+, I am totally running in the afternoon!! There are a few days this week that are going to be amazing!!
10 miles 11.5 miles (8 morning + 3.5 afternoon)
An amazing morning run with Angie and then some beautiful WARM miles on the road/trail/road over lunch 🙂
The weather this week is really calling me outside…and I should really be tapering.
It’s a battle…
A beautiful morning for a run with one of my best running pals💕 Mornings in the upper 30s are welcome to stick around for good 💕 • My tried and true lightweight jacket looks pretty good with some new @brilliant_reflective bling on the front, back, and sleeves 💥 • Go ahead and order your own online and use the code “BRP25” for 25% off multi/assortment packs!! #bebrilliant #bibchat #bibravepro
Another amazing morning! The warmest morning since last fall…yeah! I just wished that I had more miles to run so I could enjoy the temps a little more…but I KNOW it isn’t going to last long…
4 morning buddy miles + 1 solo + 1 pup • I am not sure what the weather is doing…but I wished I had more miles to run and enjoy it longer! • My @brilliant_reflective Safety Strips sure do shine bright on the dark morning runs! I was glad I was able to find one of my SUMMER tops with the Safety Strips still on! #bebrilliant #bibchat #bibravepro • #sweatpink #iamempowered #oisellevolée #flystyle #runhappy #werunsocial #2018in2018 #runtheyear2018 #RTY2018 #ffcheckin #beatyesterday #gotoshoe #thankyourunning #brooksrunning #womensrunning #runitfast #RunTheDay #RunGum #zensah #irun4aidennicole
Friday- 2 miles
My Friday’s are technically 2 miles or cross training or rest…and many weeks I have chosen the rest option… I wanted to go to the gym this morning for some yoga, but then I realized that I haven’t gone through the gym yoga class in a long, long time…and my race is next weekend. Probably not a good idea to add “something new” to my routine at this time…maybe in a couple weeks.
But since I was able to get off work a little early today, I was able to hit my trail loop for a 1 mile out and 1 mile back for my 2 miles!
Last “long run” before the race next weekend 🙂 While 10 miles doesn’t feel quite like a long run, it felt good to get out in the cold!
Last B2B long run complete for this training cycle! I ran from home to the trail, around the trail and back home – the 25-35 mph wind gusts made it a little more interesting on my way out, but at least it was on my side/back on my way home 🙂
8 windy, afternoon miles • Sunday’s can be tough for me to get out for a run…while it is the only day I can “sleep in”, I also don’t want to take away from family time later in the day. For this reason, little man’s nap time is usually a good time for me to get away for my run while the hubs can hold the fort. Today, I made it back within around 10 second of him waking up 😉 Perfect timing! #motherrunner #bamr #womensrunning #ultratraining @skinssportswear #skinsornothing #bestincompression #riseup @bibrave #bibchat #beatyesterday #thankyourunning #gogarmin
