Mint’s Training Log – 05.19.13

Last week I had every intention to start getting back on track.  Base-building.  The early part of the week started out great, but by midweek I was completely swamped with work, life and Girls on the Run.  So my training had to take the back-burner while I tackled everything else.  The good news was it was a very fun week.

Monday – rest day

Tuesday – 75 minutes with 4 strides / 8.5 miles / 8:54 pace.  Beautiful morning for a run and it felt great to get out there.

Wednesday – 62 minutes easy / 7 miles / 8:55 pace.

Thursday & Friday – off

Saturday – Our local Girls on the Run teams combined to do our “practice” 5k.  But don’t be fooled, it is a full 5k and we do it up big.  My running buddy rocked the course and met her goal of coming in between 25 and 27 minutes.  25:27 / 8:13 pace.

Rock star!

Sunday – my family participated in the local mud run.  We run on a police team and rather than racing it, run at the pace of the slowest person and stick together.  It was awesome and we had a blast.

Total: 23 miles and change.

Next week (this week), I’ll be back at it.  Really.
