Phew, it’s been a while! Hope everyone is doing well and grinding through the winter training.
I’ve been on the track for the past couple of months and I am having a ton of fun! While I love the roads, they were starting to become a grind, so it’s great to change things up and get a real sense of where I am in regards to pace.
This past weekend I raced a 3k at Villanova’s indoor meet in Staten Island, NY and here are the deets of my week of training leading up to that.
Mon 1/30 – Easy day! 7 extremely chill miles. Didn’t get started until 5 pm because I am extremely lazy and put it off all day ha. Funny how the easiest run of the week is always the hardest for me to get done.
Tues 1/31 – 4 miles in the morning before work/10 miles after work with some core.
Wed 2/1 – 4 miles in the morning/Prerace workout after work. 3x1k at 3:15ish pace and 3×300. Lifting and core afterwards. Short and sweet!
Thurs 2/2 – 4 miles in the morning/9 miles in the evening.
Fri 2/3 – Quick and easy 7 miles with strides, drove to New York.
Sat 2/4 – Race day! 3 mile shakeout in the morning, then waited around all day until my race at 7:35pm. It went well, got a little pr and learned a lot!
Sun 2/5 – 17 mile long run. No offense to Sal the snail, but he could’ve easily dropped me on this run.
And that’s a wrap for the week! Hope everyone has a great Monday!
