Can I get a do-over? With 6 weeks until the #Hawk100, I am having a rough time fitting everything in…and my running is what is suffering the most. 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…)
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)!
Well, this isn’t my last pacing weekend for FOREVER, just for 2017… Since my marathon last month, I just haven’t gotten into a good groove with “training”.

At least that’s what I tell myself…

This week is another week of trial and error. My goals are to keep my pace low so my HR also stays low. I have a pacing event this weekend that would usually be an easy, easy pace for me – but I am nervous that due to my low mileage the past couple weeks, I am not sure how the weekend event will go.
Other than Mother Nature not knowing which way is up, the cooler temps didn’t hold back the miles much! Weekly Workouts Monday- Morning winds gave way to…afternoon winds!!
