Catnip’s training log – week ending 6/22/14

My second 60-mile week in a row! Workouts are still going the right direction and I finally got my long run into my personal “legitimate long run” range – win!

Monday: 3.4 miles/30:25, 6 miles/50:25 evening. Barely squeezed these runs in since baby Jaby was super cuddly today!

Tuesday: 8.3/1:01:45. Ran 30 minutes tempo averaging 6:25 pace. Got down to low-6:00 pace in the last few minutes!

Wednesday: 6.8/1:00. I was prepared to feel beat after yesterday’s workout, but felt surprisingly fresh.

Thursday: 7.3/1:03:41. Felt even better than Wednesday.

Friday: 6.7/1:01. Worked up from 1% to 4% incline then back down.

Saturday: 15 miles/2:11 on hilly trails. Longest run in over a year!

Sunday: 6.5/53:20. Felt tired from the long run, but this was a surprisingly quick pace for me.

Total: 60 miles.

I'm a 20-year veteran of competitive running, USATF certified coach, mom of a toddler -- and still trying to set PRs. I write about training from 5k to marathon, motherhood and competitive running, and the elite side of the sport. The 5k is my favorite race (16:56 PR) but I've got a score to settle with the marathon.
