Hawk100 w14 | training for 100M


Can I get a do-over? With 6 weeks until the Hawk 100, I am having a rough time fitting everything in…and my running is what is suffering the most. If you read my Thursday post last week, you know about my family struggles at this time. With filling in a little time at work in the early morning (so not to use up ALL of my PTO for traveling to spend Friday’s with my dad) I haven’t been running early. So making up my running time over my lunch (not enough time for a lot of the distances I need to run during the week) or after work (if little man is up to sitting in the stroller for a little while) is catching up with me…

Could there just be a couple more hours in the day??

No? Okay…then I will do what I can. (and I will be trying again next week…)

weekly workouts : week 14 (july 23)

Scheduled : OFF
Actual : OFF

Scheduled : 8 miles
Actual : 1.5 miles + 6 miles

In the early afternoon, I was a model ♥ Ha! I took the photographer to one of my favorite trails and we walked the 1.5 miles and took pictures as she saw fit. 

After work, I hit up the Tuesday night group run. I knew I wanted to get at least 6 miles and added a section to the route to make that happen. After the run, I headed over to Little Apple Brewing Co. to have some food and drinks with the running crew.


Scheduled : 6 miles
Actual : 4.5 miles + cardio

Working extra during the week so I can be with my dad for his cancer treatment on Friday means I am going into work early (sometimes staying late) and not running… My lunch break is often a good time to get in a run – but not always the miles that are scheduled for the day. Today was just one of those days where the afternoon run was more of a slog… It happens. Tomorrow is another day (likely a rainy start) and we’ll see what happens!

Scheduled : 6 miles
Actual : 5.25 miles

That’s a little more like it! I set my watch to the same intervals from yesterday but they felt so much better today! It is likely the cooler air temps, but I will take what I can get!

After work, little man and I got some dinner quickly so we could go out to watch the Riley County Fair parade go through town – he sure loves parades! 

Scheduled : 6 miles
Actual : 6.2 miles

Due to sleeping in and traveling in the morning, I wasn’t able to get out and run until I got back home. Since I got back a little early, I was able to run an empty stroller to little man’s daycare and then run around the park, let him play a little bit, and then run home. After all that, we were still able to hit up the local fair and finish using up all of our tickets on the rides ♥

Scheduled : 20 miles
Actual : 20 miles

A last minute decision to run most of a preview loop of my 100 mile course made this run a little more interesting, but it worked out! 20 miles on the course I will be making 4 loops of in the matter of 6 weeks – where has the time gone!?

Scheduled : 20 miles
Actual : OFF

Taking Benadryl was a choice I made – not knowing how bad it would knock me out…and a lack of communication between the hubs and I on the fact that I had 20 miles to run again today. These missed long runs aren’t going to do anything good for my mental game coming up… sheesh.

Weekly Miles : 43 miles
100m Training Miles : 806 miles
Annual Miles : 1455 miles (goal = 2,018 in 2018)

  1. Wow, I cannot even imagine doing 2 back to back 20 milers! I haven’t even worked my way up to 20 yet! It’s coming, though! 18 this coming weekend and then probably a scale back before I jump back up and hit that 20 mark. Not sure what my longest run will end up being but, since I’m training for a 50k, probably 24 miles?

    Honestly, the thought of running 100 miles is just incredible to me. I think doing loops is a good way to do it though because you have a sense of where you are and where to find the people! Do you have a goal for this race?


    1. My goal is to finish and not get cut due to time cutoffs… It is for sure a big undertaking and the life stress is adding up for sure. I sure hope I can make it happen this year because I am not sure how I would fit in the training in the years to come…


  2. I’m so sorry that life is getting in the way of training. Not that I know anything about that… :p! I think you’re doing remarkably well. Just do the best you can!


  3. I hope you Dad is doing well with his treatment! Life just gets really busy and complicated sometimes. So, great job fitting in what you can. Hope this week is better for you. Thanks for linking!


  4. Training for such a long race is life consuming. Doing it when you have kids and are helping your father is amazing. I know those back to back 20 milers are important for your race but I’m sure you’ll be able to make it up. We have to live our lives too.


  5. Balancing training with important life things is the struggle every distance runner faces. You can only do what you do can. Running is a passion, but life has to come first. Sending you and your family good vibes and hoping things settle down for you so you can get back to your routine.


  6. Great job with your training this week. I think it’s awesome that you ran 20 miles on the actual course this weekend. I’m sure that will help you feel more at ease come race day!
