spring training | Endure Strong w5

Disclaimer: I received free entry to Hospital Hill races and also received an Endure Strong training program as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews!

With all the weather in the area (AKA rain rain go away…), I was sure glad for the miles I was able to get in! This Endure Strong training plan is no joke — the “workout” days are a real WORKOUT. I am loving all the easy days though too…

I have some running plans for this spring and then in the fall…but we’ll see what all gets accomplished. I am not in complete control at this point – but here is what is on the calendar to this point :

  • Garmin Half Marathon (4/13/19) CHECK!
  • Bill Snyder Highway Half (5/25/19) – sweep pace the 3:00+ finishers to the stadium! Bring it on this weekend!!
  • Hospital Hill Run (6/1/19) – run with me, any distance really, and save with the discount code BIBRAVE19 – good for 10% off!
  • Kansas City Marathon (10/20/19) – run with me, any distance really, and save with the discount code BIBRAVE2019KCM – good for 15% off!

While ALL of these plans are in my calendar, I have high hopes that this pregnancy will allow me to run to my heart (and legs) content!

Let’s see how this week went!

spring training | new plan w5

Scheduled : 3 miles easy
Actual : 3 treadmill miles — With the crummy weather, I was able to talk my way into a little longer lunch break so I could get to the gym for my miles.

Scheduled : 2x1600m (5K pace) & 400m (1m pace); 3 minute rest between sets
Actual : 1 mile walk

Image may contain: one or more people, people sitting, dog and outdoor

Scheduled : 3 miles easy
Actual : 4.2 mile run (yesterday’s interval workout) with my running friend and pup + 3 mile lunch walk

Scheduled : 6x800m @ 5K; 1-1 recovery
Actual : 3.5 mile lunch run — I mostly just set out to get in the time on my feet, and not necessarily the difficulty of the “workout”. But with the heat, I certainly had to take it a little easier on some of the intervals…

Always wearing my Aftershokz!

Scheduled : 3 miles easy
Actual : 3 afternoon sweaty miles — I really need to use my head and get out when I can in the morning. Too bad the weather kept me in today…so I slipped out when I could!

Image may contain: one or more people, shorts and outdoor

Scheduled : 5 mile long run
Actual : 13.2 mile — Bill Snyder Highway Half — With storm clouds looming, the humidity was HIGH…which made it a tough day for all of the runners.

I make it in past my pacing time (which I expected) but helped many runners along the way — several who mentioned to me after the race that they didn’t want “a pregnant runner/pacer to pass them”. Well…at least I pushed them along, ha!

All things considered, I could have taken some of the comments I received personally and through the grapevine from friends along the way as negative, but I know I am doing good for my body and baby…

Yeah, I will wear “that pregnant runner” and “that pregnant pacer” with pride 🙂

Scheduled : “rest” day
Actual : OFF — Darn the luck…I broke my streak today… I am a little ticked with myself for not just going out for a mile, but with family and friends over for the afternoon, I just didn’t care to step away. Oh well. I’m sure my legs could use the break anyway after yesterday’s half marathon…

Miles, miles, miles! Check out the weekly workout
