Training Week 13!

Almost there! Only three weeks away and this week the weather really tried to keep me inside but it didn’t. I am so glad I got out there and ended the week with 57.8 miles! 

Monday: Rest! 

I am almost positive I did absolutely nothing Monday, it was the day after my ten mile race so I needed a break. I think I only walked from the refrigerator and back 🙂 


Tuesday: 6 miles easy 

I managed 6 easy miles and also a 2 mile walk with my pup! Added 5 minutes of planks and 5 minutes of hamstring/glute work.


Wednesday: 12.6 mile tempo 

I had to split this workout due to time constraints. I did 6 at lunch with a friend at (9:12, 9:07, 7:38, 8:33, 7:21, 7:32). Then I finished it up with 6 speedy miles after work at (7:40, 7:30, 7:31, 7:30, 7:35, 7:11). I was racing the sunset!


Thursday: 4.25 miles easy & 5 min plank 


Friday: 8 mile speed 

Due to the snow storm Thursday night, I took this to the treadmill at 5 pm. The scheduled workout was 4 x 1 mile at 7-6:45 pace. I decided to progressively get faster since I can set the pace on a treadmill (the positive). Managed 6:58, 6:53, 6:48, 6:44 as my miles! Overall finished just over an hour. Added some TRX abs to finish. 


Saturday: 4.3 easy miles 

I ran the first 3 with Ruger and the last mile with Lyla, so the pups were happy. I then took Lyla snowshoeing for two miles, which was an adventure. Concluded with 25 minutes of strength for the day. 


Sunday: 22.6 miles

Nothing was easy about this because the roads were awful from the snow on Saturday, but it’s done and in the books! 


Now for week 14! It calls for less total mileage but more race specific workouts, getting excited for March 5th!!

Anyone else already dreaming of their summer/fall races? Considering trying to get in to a few bucket list races like Mt Washington, Beach to Beacon and the Falmouth Road Race! What are your favorite races?
