Welcome to my weekly recap. I’m training for the Columbus Half Marathon… and how did it get to be Tuesday again already?! I have had a crazy busy week which I will talk about in another post, but let’s see how my training went this week!
Miles run: 27.5 miles (up .3 from last week. ha!)
Mon – 5 miles, treadmill 10:34 pace. Nothing special about this run, but I am enjoying catching up on my DVR’d tv shows! My kittens showed me some love when I came up from the basement. Awwww!
We also had another cross country “ice cream” hill run after school. I biked along with the team.
It was around 91 degrees outside. Those poor kids running up hills in that heat!! The ice cream was well deserved.
Tues – Rest!
Weds – 6 miles, treadmill 9:19 pace. This was a progressive run which kept getting a little faster as I went along.
Thurs – Rest!
Fri – Long run, 10.4 miles. I broke my long run into two parts due to my schedule. I had a Dr appointment and I wanted to get my run done first, so I started running when it was still dark out (on my treadmill), and finished up outside. Initially I was bummed because it had started to sprinkle when I got outside, but then I got to see a really cool rainbow. Glad I made it out there!
Yeah, there’s an 8: in front of my pace!
Sat – Rest!
Sun – 6.2 miles, 8:25 pace. Race day!!! MacQueen’s Run for Your Life 10K. I’ll give you a race recap later this week, but I was quite happy with it because it went better than I expected. Here’s a race photo… I was going for a “thumbs up” look instead of my usual “jazz hands”. Nailed it. Kinda.
Speaking of rainbows, we also saw this weird rainbow right around the sun last week. Crazy!
Q: How are your workouts this week? Anyone tapering for a race?
Q: Do you have a favorite show from the new Fall lineup?
I’m loving the return of Will and Grace! It’s a bit political, but they are still hilarious.
