Salty’s Training Log – 12.25.16 & 1.1.17

A quicky log! Holidays are crazy time for my family. As I’ve said before, every time I’ve tried to train through them I get injured, so I just don’t any more. The good news is, that with the pressure off and a low-key attitude about running, I managed to run more than I expected to during this time.

Week ending on 12.25.16

Kids were still in school through Wednesday, so that helped get more running in this week.

Mon: 8 from home while daughter was in preschool.

Tue: Husband was home so despite a busy day with kids’ school christmas parties among other things, I squeezed in 6 from home including some hill surges and strides.

Wed: Off

Thu: 7 miles under 8:00 pace. Solo run outside. Ooooo!

Fri: Date running with my husband. 6 easy at the park.

Sat: 8 easy from home.

Sun: Another almost 6 with my husband while Cinnamon made Christmas guacamole with the kiddos.

Total: 40.75

Salty Running boss and mother of 3 little ones with PRs of 3:10:15 (26.2), 1:25:59 (13.1) and 18:15 (5k). I love to write about running culture, mental training, and fitting in a serious running habit with the rest of a busy life.
