This week the Tuesday’s On The Run ladies (Erika, Marcia, and Patty) are discussing spring break running and/or racing plans…so let’s dive in! What is this “spring break” you speak of?
This week was a little funny.. Since I took the past Sunday off, I decided to run on Monday – so then my brain was out of wack and mixed up my miles for the week. Oh well, this training cycle is off to a good start and is focused on the Garmin Marathon (where I will be pacing the 5:30 runners)! Let’s run!
I have been to the windy city, but not like this!! Join me and explore the city by foot at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicago Half Marathon in July!! The code “RNRBRP2018” saves $15 off the half marathon distance! #bibchat #ad
After my failed attempt at the Run Toto Run 50K a couple weeks ago, I wasn’t sure how quickly I would be able to get back into my next training cycle. Frankly, I didn’t push myself to complete the scheduled training miles on the plan for the week after the race. I was pleasantly surprised that my “active recovery week” after the race ended up with 35 miles!
Do you know what I account a big portion of my positive post-race week of miles? The amazing SKINS DNAmic Compression tights that I wore at the race and for the following week (whenever possible)!
This week was an interesting one! I wanted this week to be one for recovery, but I did quite a bit of running…felt great!
I am hoping that the training time between the 50K 20M and the big 100M training cycle will be filled with additional strength training and marathon prep! My next “race” in the books is the Garmin Marathon and I will be pacing the 5:30 runners!

What a week! The weather was crazy…and not in a good way. Which meant that the trails for my weekend race were not so great… “Take what the trail gives you” has a whole new meaning for me now – because I took 5 pounds of the trail with me home… Here’s my last week for this training cycle!
