Weekly Rundown

Marathon training week 5 is done!  It was a welcomed back down week and I took it easy, rearranged my long runs and had some really good runs late in the week to make up for the mess Wednesday night.  weeklyrundownlogo Fitness

Monday – 3 mile recover run around my neighborhood in the morning.  Solid run given the heat that morning.  3 miles @10:57 pace with avg HR 135

Tuesday – I met Christie and Amy for an early morning 3 miler.  Cara, Hayden and I were going shopping so I had only a little bit of time to get in a run.  3 miles @9:31 pacetuesdayrun

Wednesday – The worst run of all runs!  It was 90+ and 90% humidity.  It was Di’Lishi night with Runnerdude’s group so we met up to run with them!  The only good thing about this run was the company, the ice cold wet towel when we finished, and fro yo. This one counted as my first long run.  5 miles @11:40 pace   It included a lot of walking, some sprinting, and a bunch of complaining.

Thursday – Cara and I met early to run our second long run of the week.  I wasn’t sure how this would go.  It was really foggy and the air felt thick when we started and it was hard to breathe.  We were expecting it to be a repeat of the night before, but then suddenly around mile 4, something clicked and we felt really great!!  So weird how that happens! 6 miles @10:57 pace avg HR 130thursday8-6

Friday – I ran a 5K on the treadmill in our hotel in Williamsburg.  I upped the incline to 1% and started around 10:30 pace and kicked up the speed over time to where I was at 7:40 pace for the last .10.  I walked just a bit to cool down.  3.14 miles@9:41 pacefriday8-7Saturday – I couldn’t take running on the treadmill another day so I ventured outside and ran in the neighborhood that adjoins our hotel.  It was a great run and I felt awesome.   It’s a lot flatter here in Williamsburg then in Greensboro.  I thought I’d only run a mile, but after I got started I decided to run another 5K.  3.1 miles @ 9:13 pacesaturday8-8Sunday – Mandatory one mile rest day.  I’ve not had a “rest” day since last week Wednesday.

Total miles: 24.34 miles

2015 Year to Date: 891.77 on my way to 1500

Looks like I’ll be hitting 900 miles next week! 🙂

  1. Running in that kind of heat is never easy. I always give myself “heat and humidity points” for runs like those 🙂 Your meals look delicious!!

  2. Oh wow! 891 miles is a lot. I’m not really sure how many I have for 2015, but I’m sure it’s less than that. It’s been pretty hot around here too, with high humidity. It just makes running hard and not particularly enjoyable. Can’t wait until the fall.

  3. Hi! Stopping by from the weekly link-up. WOW…congrats on nearing 900 miles for the year 🙂 Such a huge accomplishment! I’m hitting 400 this week 🙂 Looks like you had some great runs this past week…and kudos for listening to your body and taking a “mandatory” rest day. I love it! xoxo
