This week went well overall. One thing that I need to work out a little better is my morning routine…and run timing. The midweek  miles will continue to go up and I need to get it done!

weekly workouts : week 4 (may 14)

Scheduled : OFF
Actual : OFF

Scheduled : 8 miles
Actual : 4 morning miles + 4 afternoon miles

This week is off to a slow start…a much needed morning of sleeping in on Monday led me to want to sleep in today as well. Enough so that I didn’t get up and out in enough time to get in 8 miles. I settled for 4 miles and packed up my lunch run bag for some afternoon trail miles. I even thought of possibly running with the group run this evening…but I settled to say hello to the runners as I dropped off the pacing materials for this weekend’s local half marathon.

Scheduled : 8 miles
Actual : 8 miles

A late start led me to feel a little defeated before I even left the house. Since I didn’t run an errand last night, I decided to RUN it this morning…which meant that I didn’t do the hill workout that I planned. It’s okay. I still experienced “the hill” but just wasn’t able to run up and down it several times. When I got home, I knew I still needed 2 miles and since I had the time, I grabbed the pup and we headed out for the last couple miles. 

The COROS PACE is working out great!

Scheduled : 8 miles
Actual : 5 morning miles + 3 miles

Another slow start to the morning – I was awake with my first alarm but a late bedtime and middle-of-the-night water break for little man aided in me not wanting to get out of bed. Once up, I was out the door relatively quickly and decided to make the most of my morning and run some intervals. I knew I wouldn’t be able to get all 8 miles again this morning, but I put a dent in what I needed for the day! I already had a packed runch bag, so I took it easy in the warm afternoon sun to make up the rest.

Scheduled : 8 miles
Actual : 8 miles

Even though I didn’t get out as early as I would have liked, I was still able to run 8 miles, take a full shower, and change out a load of laundry before heading out the door for the day… Bring on Friday!

Scheduled : 20 miles
Actual : 13.1 miles + 7 miles

With storms on the radar, I wasn’t sure how the morning was going to turn out. Since I needed to transport the left over pacer sticks to the race morning packet pick-up location, I couldn’t run over for my warm up. Oh well…it was raining anyway!

We sat on the busses for over an hour before leaving for the start of the race. We were mostly okay with this because we weren’t getting wet. Right before the race, I decided to put my rain jacket in my drop bag and hoped I made the right decision.


Well, the rain skirted north and didn’t get us again the rest of the morning! I paced the course well and I was able to finish in 2:39:36 for my 2:40 pace time. Spot on!

I even went back on course to catch one of my girls. She worked so hard to get to this point, and running through campus dropped her back a minute or two. I’m sad that she will be leaving Manhattan soon (we all need new running buddies!) and I wanted her to cross that line knowing she finished strong! I am a nice pacer, I promise…I look mean in this finishing photo…

Yay Mary!! You did it!!

After the race, I hung around long enough to eat a cookie, find some friends, get my medal signed by Bill Snyder (the namesake for the Bill Snyder Highway Half), and stand around long enough to get sore…

I headed out for my last 7 miles of my training today and I got a message from my sister that a dear, dear woman in our lives had passed away. She has been sick for a while now, had a few better days and then her health went downhill fast. When I read her message, it didn’t quite hit me. I felt relief that she wasn’t hurting anymore…but then when I read the message that her daughter wrote online, I lost it. I think the mix of raw emotions with exhaustion from the miles already put in for the day set me into a tailspin. This woman was more than just a person in my life, she was a mother figure when times were tough growing up, she always had a smile and an “I love you” to give, and she lived so passionately with God in her life. Kill them with kindness is always how I will remember her and try to live my life. Don’t stress on the little things and others that you cannot control. Love you Suz!

Scheduled : 11 miles
Actual : 11 miles

Today was different in so many ways. Today was the day that I supported my hubs in similar ways as he supports me. Today was his first cycling event – 50 miles – and the weather did not take kindly to him and the other riders. Since I was going to be with him anyway, I decided to volunteer and give back to the community! Through the rain, I stood under tents and tried to stay dry – and tracked him along the way. I knew that he was going to do awesome as long as the weather didn’t cause him to have to stop for an extended amount of time – even with the 30 minute delay at the start. When it was all said and done, he finished in roughly 4.5 hours!

After the event, we headed home, cleaned up, lazied around…and I eventually headed out for my 11 mile run. I didn’t really want to spend a couple hours on the road when I could spend that time with my family…but I needed to get it done. Frankly, I headed out with the thought that I wasn’t going to get in all 11 miles. I was almost okay with selling myself short, but by mile 3, I felt great and I roughly planned my route to make it happen. The one small detail was that I didn’t take hardly any water with me…I PLANNED on not going very far/long… So a quick message to the hubs and POOF, I had water (2 bottles) and the boost to just get it done.

Weekly Miles : 63 miles
HHR mini cycle : 209 miles
100m Training Miles : 209 miles
Annual Miles : 857 miles (goal = 2,018 in 2018)

  1. So sorry to hear about the loss of your family friend. How lucky you were to have someone so special in your life.

    Congrats on hitting your goal finish time in your half.

  2. Great week of training. Good job on your race! Good thing you read that text after the race. That would have sent me over the edge. I hate when I set out for a run that I don’t expect to go as far so don’t bring water but then I end up getting in a groove and keep going. Your hubby came to the rescue how nice!

  3. Loving all these posts talking about the Coros Pace watch, sounding like a great one! 🙂
    Way to rock your training this week, even if you had some rough parts to push through. Congrats on achieving your goal at your half marathon!
    So sorry to hear about your close friend passing on. I’m sure she is now up there cheering for you now.

    1. For the 2day runs, depending on my goals, it varies. Like today, my morning run was simply to get some dryer sheets from the store…and my second was a hot trail run. The heat sure makes the second run harder to keep my HR down.


  4. Congrats on your perfect half marathon pacing! It’s nice you went back for the friend that dropped back. I’m sure she appreciated it. Cycling in the rain is worse than running in the rain (at least it is to me). Congrats to your husband in completing that milestone.

    I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your sweet friend & mother figure. Thanks for linking.
