Weekly Rundown

This is my second post of the day because I forgot to set up my Weekly Fitness and Meal Plan to post yesterday.  The life of a blogger! 🙂

This week was a wonderfully easy week for me with running.  I just took it as a recovery week and did a lot of great easy runs and walks.  It was also super social for most of our runs and it was exactly what I needed!



Monday – One mile and a BodyPump class.  It was a great class and I’m already back to my normal weights on everything!

Tuesday – 4 mile run with the girls!  We ran most of the 4 miles and walked some too.  It was really hot, sunny and humid.

Wednesday – We tackled some speed work.  Cara’s training for a 5K and we decided we’d show her our support and run some speed work with her.  It was silly fun and we all did so well!  We ran a mile warm-up and did 60 x 60 (1 min fast, one minute recovery) for 8 rounds.  I was so surprised at some of my pace splits!  I had not hit some of those paces in a long time (I stopped doing speed work almost 2 years ago).  I also felt super strong and I could tell that my HR training has paid off.  The highest I saw on my HR monitor was 172 and that was right towards the end.  I was in the 160’s for most of them and was running sub 7’s.

Thursday – 4 miles of solo recovery run.  I kept it super easy, ran at a HR of 135 or below.

Friday – one mile

Saturday – 6 miles with friends.  We have some friends who either just had a baby or is pregnant and they came to meet us!  It was so great to see them and we all enjoyed our walk. We had a huge group walking and talking down the Greenway.  Our friends turned to head back at 1.5 miles and the rest of us went out to mile 3 and ran back.  We had great run!  It was the perfect start to the weekend!

Sunday – Race the Bar 5K with Christine and other runner friends.  It was a great event and I’ll have my race recap up tomorrow!

Total weekly miles: 23.14 miles

2015 Year to Date Miles: 564.35 on my way to 1500

  1. Sounds like the perfect week. I had super easy enjoyable runs too! Including much trail running/walking. And that mango dish sounds yummy! My goal for the week was to hit 30 and I did! Slowly working my mileage back up for a solid pre-marathon training in July!!
