Another weekly recap, where I don’t have a whole lot of fancy workouts to write about. Just easing my way back into training after my marathon. It was a fun week though, and great weather. Plus, my birthday!
Here is my weekly recap
Monday- 6.1 miles at 7:21 pace, total time 44:59
Got in 3 miles with my track kiddos today and then a few more solo miles. Kind of a happy/sad day as it was my last workout with this group of kiddos.
Tuesday- 7.8 miles with 2 miles at 5:30 pace
I planned a small track workout to start getting some speed back into my legs. The Girls on the Run group from our feeder elementary school was using the track. So instead, I decided to case a segment that one of my friends took.
Wednesday- 4.3 miles at 7:27 pace, total time 32:16
We were supposed to have a track meet today but it was canceled because of rain. I was able to get a short run in after work and luckily it was pretty dry.
Thursday-4 mile at 7:53 pace, total time 31:56
Another easy 4 miler today. Just trying to get back into the routine.
Friday- Scheduled Rest Day
Super long day at our track meet, I planned to take this one off. I actually went home very sore after standing on my feet all day.
Saturday-4.2 miles at 7:52 pace, total time 33:52
I had a pretty busy day planned, so I kept my run short. Mostly, I just wanted to enjoy the nice weather with my family this weekend.
Sunday- 4.6 miles total, Birthday 5k
Did a fun local 5k for my birthday. I was able to take 1st overall fairly easy, which was nice.
So here I am, feeling pretty good and ready to jump back into full mode training again. I have had 3 weeks of really light running and I feel healthy. I think the light running also helped me get mentally read for the next training cycle. I have already reached out to coach Jeremy to start thinking about fall goal races and talk about what I would like to get out of this next round of training.
