This was a fun week! The weather improved, my parents came to give us a night out this weekend, and I wrapped it up with a trail race on Saturday.
Week 4 already of Boston training!
Monday : 10 easy will rolling hills- a great Boston imitator with the first half downhill and the second half uphill (8:21 ave)
Tuesday: 4 easy miles (9:20s) + 20 minute pool run
Wednesday: 10 miles with some speed mixed in (2 warm up, 3 x 1 mile with 200m jog 6:45, 6:36, 6:44; 2 x 800m (3:13, 3:15); 2 x 400m (1:28, 1:32) and cool down)
This run felt hard from the start and I really wasn’t feeling it but I pushed through anyway. Hopefully that means a better track workout next time!
Thursday: am strength workout + 4 mile walk/jog with a friend (2 miles of jogging total)
Friday: 8 easy (8:10 ave)
A beautiful, sunny day! My legs just wanted to go.
Saturday: Trail race!
This was fun! Other than wiping out and bruising my knee, I had a blast. I did the 3 hour option for about 16 miles total. I’ll share more details on the race later this week.
What I’m making this week…
- stuffed peppers with ground turkey and rice
- spaghetti squash pizza bake
- quinoa minestrone
- veggie omelets
First 50 mile week done for this cycle. This is a cut back week so I’m hoping my knee heals quickly so I don’t miss too much time!
Have you ever done a trail race?
