Finishing up the Chuckanut 50k!
Finishing up the Chuckanut 50k!

Plan for the week: Race and Recover.

 Saturday 3/19: Race Day! Run: 31 miles

Sunday 3/20: Rest Day. Drove back home to Portland and did a lot of sitting around and eating.

Monday 3/21: Rest Day. I took the day off of work and caught up on groceries, laundry, etc.

Tuesday 3/22: Swim 1.5km + some aqua-jogging

Wednesday 3/23: Run: 5 miles I took it nice and easy, and it felt pretty good all things considered!

Thursday 3/24: Follow-up PT appointment after my race. Everything looks good! I guess running so much slower than I planned resulted in being far less sore than I would have been after a full race effort. Run: 5 miles

Friday 3/25: Rest Day. Worked from home and packed for my work trip to Korea.

Total Mileage: 41 miles

Summary: I didn’t meet my race goals, but recovery is going well!

Plan for the week: Work travel in Korea. It’s always challenging to get runs in around buys workdays when traveling. It’s nice that this trip coincided with a recovery week so it was less stressful! The week was full of  meetings and conference rooms and also some good times with coworkers from the US and Korea (Korean BBQ, Karaoke, Sightseeing…).

 Saturday 3/26: Ran in the morning before the long flight to Korea. Run: 7 miles

Sunday 3/27: Travel Day

Monday 3/28: Run: 3.5 miles on the treadmill

Tuesday 3/29: Run: 4 miles outside

Wednesday 3/30: Run: 4 miles outside

Thursday 3/31: Run: 4 miles outside

Friday 4/1: Run: 5 miles outside

Total Mileage: 27.5 miles

Summary: I survived and now I’m back home and it’s time to figure out what’s next!

I'm a proud resident of Portlandia, ex-running store employee, pulmonary emboli conquerer and connoisseur of high fives. I write about running community, trail running/training and anything else that grabs my immediate interest. I'm currently running for fun with my crazy friends - no races on the horizon YET.
