So I’m back from a wonderful race weekend in the woods with little connection to the outside world. It was a great week and I’m still smiling about how well almost every run went!
Monday: Rest day!
Tuesday: 7 miles. I ran really early before work and was happy to finally see some signs of spring on my run.
Wednesday: Unplanned rest day. Boo.
Thursday: 8.5 miles. 5 miles on my own in the rain, then 3.5 with one of my friends who is tapering for her spring marathon.
Friday: 20 miles. I got a long road run in finally! It was sunny, warm and I felt good the whole time.
Saturday: 6 miles. I ran three slow around my college campus and then ran a 5K. I wasn’t planning on running it super fast and ran the race in 23:50 and ended up taking third in my age group!
Sunday: 31 miles. I ran the Forget the PR Mohican 50K. Since the race was on a lot of the trails I will be running the 100 miler on, the goal was to stick to an even pace, not get sick and feel good at the end. I did just that, despite the rain for most of the race and the mud. It was a great day and I got my first belt buckle!
Total: 72.5 miles!
