Can you believe September is coming to an end? Only 6 more weeks until the New York City Marathon! I’m linking up with Jess Runs ATL- details below if you want to join us!
Here’s how training went last week:
Monday: 8 morning miles with some 1k repeats in the middle.
An Arms & Abs class at [solidcore] after work. That class is so fantastic, I love it! I was really sore afterwards.
Tuesday: Another 8 morning miles.
Wednesday: Since I was doing Ragnar Northwoods Trail this weekend, my coach had me do my long run this day. I had to take a 1/2 day of PTO from work to fit it in. 18 miles is to much to do before work!
You know you’re a runner when…you use vacation time to do your long run 🙂
10 miles alone, 8 miles with this little lady:
Goodness, it was HUMID. Tilda didn’t enjoy it that much, neither did I.
Thursday: 5 early miles with my friends Lindsey and Ryan.
Friday: Ragnar Trail Northwoods! I will definitely write a post all about this fun filled weekend with 3 out of 4 of my sisters and 4 other friends (8 people total per team) but that race review deserves a post of its own.
I’ll just focus on the runs for the weekly recap!
Friday around 3 pm: 7.6 HOT, HOT miles (the RED loop!) followed by another 8 miles (the green and yellow loops combined) at 11 pm (in the middle of the night on trail in the dark- crazy!)
Saturday: Well, the days kind of blurred together in Ragnar, but I’m pretty sure I only had one run on Saturday, my last “red” loop of 7.6 miles of tough, technical trail but at least in daylight! About 23 miles of trail total.
Tough, but oh, so fun!
Sunday: Rest! MUCH needed. I was quite sore from the trail running, not to mention quite tired 🙂
One last patio evening! A great Sunday.
Summary: 63 miles of running, 1 Arms & Abs class at [solidcore]
This week was definitely a little odd with Ragnar thrown in there, but overall I felt pretty good and was happy with how things went. New York City is coming up quickly!
On a random closing note, I saw this on Run to the Finish’s blog & thought it was pretty funny:
