Sassafras’s Training Log – 11.25.12

Hope everyone had a good Tweek! I am still slowly easing back into running and building my base, so I didn’t have high mileage numbers this week. I wrote out my training plan this weekend and plan to start training for my next marathon December 16!

While this week was mainly about base-building, ย it also involved two Turkey Trots! I ran/walked one as support squad and raced the other. Needless to say, I am feeling pretty sore as I sit here typing out my log. What a way to re-introduce speedwork, right? I’m not sure that I’d recommend it, but it was fun and I did come away with some bling!

Monday – Rest

Tuesday – 4 miles at 10:02 pace.

Wednesday – 3 miles solo (well, with my iPod) at 8:53 pace.

Thursday – Turkey Trot #1! I was visiting my parents so I signed up to do a very, very casual local 5K with my mom, dad and uncle. (As in, you had to bring your own hydration and timing device!) My mom did a modified Couch to 5K plan to train for this race, and we ran/walked it together. 3.1 miles at 14:01 pace.

Friday – Rest. Also, Thanksgiving Dinner #2 for my belly.

Saturday – Turkey Trot #2. A local-to-me 5K that I did with a friend who was in town visiting family. It was ridiculously cold and more hilly than I’d expected, but I am happy to report that I have a new 5K PR! I ran it in 23:17 and was 3rd female. Plus I apparently ran so fast I took years off my age, as they mistakenly announced me as the winner of the 20s age group ๐Ÿ™‚

Sunday – Some light yoga and yardwork.

Total – 13.2 miles
