Weekly Workout

OZ Marathon w7 | training for 100M

With the Garmin Marathon just two weeks to go (from the beginning of the week), I have started refreshing the local weather way more than I should be…next week will begin the crazy, unnecessary amount refreshing!

Even though I haven’t gotten in all of my “prescribed” runs the past couple weeks, I am not feeling guilty about it. Sometimes a run just isn’t going to happen – nothing to beat yourself up about. Just do what you can today and the rest will work itself out!

Let’s go, another week of training in the books!


weekly workouts : week 7 (apr 9)

Scheduled : OFF
Actual : OFF

While I wanted to “make up missed miles” from last weekend, I talked myself off that ledge…and did some laundry, and reading… For the BibRave Book Club this month, we are reading “My Year of Running Dangerously” by Tom Foreman. 

Scheduled : 4 miles
Actual : 4.5
 miles + 1 evening mile with little man & pup

A cool (but not unbearable) start to the day kept me warm in my bed – and I packed up my lunch bag. With 4 miles on the schedule, I decided to hit up my favorite section of river trail ♥ The bushes and trees are starting to green up again and the warmth of summer sun is great today – and tomorrow and the next day…but not the day after that… Spring, summer, fall, and winter all in one week 🙂 Welcome to KS.

Scheduled : 5 miles
Actual : 5 miles

Holy heat.

Kansas is crazy bizzare right now…50/60s one day, 80s the next few, then 20s… WHAT?! Today was one of those 80s days and while I SHOULD HAVE gone to run before work, I didn’t. I got to experience summer-like heat before spring has really started… Yuck.

Scheduled : 4 miles
Actual : 4 miles

Thank goodness for the “morning cool”…it got down to all of 60 degrees last night – that should be the HIGH TEMP these days! Crazy KS weather… I met up with my running buddy for our 4 mile loop – but when I realized I forgot to start my Garmin, we were nearly a mile down the road… Oh well, I know it was 4! Garmin doesn’t even know…

Scheduled : 2 miles
Actual : 8 miles + almost 2 miles 

With the weekend weather in mind, my running buddy and I set out for out last “long run” of this training cycle. We “enjoyed” the sticky, windy 70 degree morning over Saturday’s possible rain/snow and 30 degree start… Wouldn’t you?!

After a long day at work, little man and I hit the trail! This is the first time he has come to my favorite local river trail with me…I think he really enjoyed it and will be asking to come back again ♥ This was also a way for me to use my Orange Mud Gear Vest (water, snacks, phone), and test out my new Rudy Rydon shades and Aftershokz Trekz Air! All of which will be coming to the blog in the coming weeks.

Scheduled : 8 miles
Actual : OFF

The weather was COLD…so I was very glad that I ran on Friday. Also, the hubs planned on going to the gym early, so I didn’t head out for any miles…

Scheduled : 3 miles
Actual : OFF

While I spend the day at home, I just couldn’t pull myself away from family time in the evening to get in a few miles. Sometimes, the run just isn’t worth it…

Weekly Miles : 23 miles
Training Miles : 267 miles
Annual Miles : 608 miles (goal = 2,018 in 2018)

  1. The weather has just been crazy everywhere! Like you, we’ve had temps all over the place lately ..but the 80’s is just too soon! We need to be able to ‘ease’ into those kind of temps so the body can adjust. Lol
    Great week of running and goodluck with your marathon!

  2. I actually host a blog book club–I have for years, but it’s turned into me writing a monthly review and people commenting, “oh I should read this!” LOL. I have considered reading Tom Foreman’s book for a while, and it is definitely on the back burner. Curious to know what you think.

    Good luck with the marathon and thanks for linking up!
