Poppy’s downtime training log 6.12-6.18.17

I did not do much running this week and that was by design. Husband-coach gave me active downtime this week (following complete rest and light activity the week before). I enjoyed having another low week for a bit of a break. Did quite a bit of swimming with the kiddos and work in the garden. It was pretty humid for most of this week and that served as a reminder of what’s to come the next 2-3 months.

This little lady ran her first race this past week.

Monday: 7 mile family run (I pushed the double for only two miles).

Tuesday: 6 mile family run. Like yesterday I pushed the double for the last two miles.

Wednesday: 4 miles in the morning w/ the kids in the double, 4 solo in the afternoon.

Thursday: 6 miles w/ the kids in the double.

Friday: 4 miles w/ the kids in the morning, 4 solo in the afternoon.

Saturday: 12 solo miles.

Sunday: 6 miles w/ the kids in the double, joining the hubs for the first two miles of his long run. The kids and I made a quick stop to pick up Father’s Day donuts on the way home.

53 miles for the week

I'm a licensed massage therapist with a background in biochemistry and also a mother of two. After almost two years of focusing on shorter race distances, I am back on the marathon training horse. My next goal race is the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. I write mostly about health and science as they relate to running as well as being part of a running family.
