Another Week of Training

Last week’s training went much better than the week before! I got 5 runs done including running the Warrior Dash with friends, all though one of those runs ended up shorter than planned due to being wiped out after a late night in the office. Β  This was my 3rd time running the Warrior Dash, and it was fun as always! I’ll be posting a race review later this week! πŸ™‚

The quick run down:

  • Monday-Rest
  • Tuesday-5 miles (Speed work with 1 mile repeats)
  • Wednesday-Rest
  • Thursday-6.15 miles (Outdoors)
  • Friday- 3 miles (Treadmill)
  • Saturday- 3.1 miles (Warrior Dash 5K)
  • Sunday- 10 miles (LSD at Lake Elkhorn)

Total Weekly Miles: 27.25

Total 2014 Miles: 573.83


Not a perfect training week, but I’m getting there! I am having to learn to be patient and realistic with myself, and work has been especially hectic this month. Β I’m both excited and nervous about my upcoming NFC trail marathon. Β It is not a goal race for me, so I plan on just taking it easy and enjoying the scenery. Β I’ve done a couple of short trail runs and am quickly learning that trail running is a totally different beast! While I can’t run ANY where near my normal pace, I love the challenge, the focus it requires, and the feeling of adventure. Β We’ll see how NFC goes…I’m expecting I may get hooked! (I do have an addictive running personality after all πŸ˜‰ )

Just a quick and dirty post today, but I’ll finish off with a little Monday Motivation! (I have a feeling this is going to be a great week of training!)
