Ive managed to string together to back to back 50+ mile weeks! Woo! The best part is that for the most part I’m feeling a lot more like my old self.
The most notable development in my running and nonrunning life is that I’ve now weaned my youngest! Wednesday marked the first day in over 7 years that I was not either pregnant or nursing (or both)!
Mon: 4 with both daughters in the stroller on a beautiful day!
Tue: 5.5 with lots of hills and no watch.
Wed: 5 with the single stroller before a 45:00 strength class.
Thu: 7.5 with 8 x 2:00 at 5k effort with 1:00 easy between early and on mixed terrain.
Fri: 7 early with no watch.
Sat: 15 on a hilly course with no watch alone. Felt pretty good and not beat up at all which I sometimes am after tis route.
Sun: 6 early with no watch.
Total: 50! and 1 45:00 strength class
Mon: 4 @ slightly < 8:00 on the treadmill during my daughter’s gymnastics class. Felt good!
Tue: 6.75 with 14 x :30/1:00. Went by fast!
Wed: 10 with tempo. Not ideal but the weather was amazing and I could get out in the evening alone, so I did my tempo a day early. I am so out of practice with outside tempos I had no idea how to run it. I averaged about 6:50 for 4 miles broken up by a bathroom stop at 2.5. Then ran 5:00 easy and then 4 x :30 @ mile effort (HARD!)/90 seconds easy between.
Thu: SO. Tired. 4 with the single stroller in the cold rain.
Fri: Still pooped. 6 miles dragged and it was really hard to pry myself out of bed. 45:00 Piyo class felt way hard!
Sat: 13.5 averaging about 8:00 pace. Didn’t start my watch until 1.5 in and we averaged 7:57 for 12. Ran with friends who almost helped me forget it was 15 degrees!
Sun: 7.25 with one of my favorite out of staters, Allie (she posted a few times as Saffron here!) Fwlt really good for the day after a long run. Only complaint is that my stomach has not been right much of this week. I was guessing it was from the antibiotics, but seems like that should have resolved by now, a week since I’ve been done with them?
Total: 51.5 miles and 45:00 Piyo class
