Spearmint’s Training Log 3.27.16

This week was kindof a down week which was nice and also weird. I have an irrational fear of accidentally peaking and wasting everything I’ve built up, when I pull my mileage back a little on down weeks….pretty sure an accidental peak isn’t a thing at all but it seems like a very serious issue to me when I’m in a deep-thinking sesh during a training run ๐Ÿ™‚

Monday- 4 mile morning run/9 mile evening run +core and abs

Tuesday-4 mile morning run/Pre race workout. 4×400, 1×1000, 4×400, 4×200 strides with 200 jog in between.

Wednesday-4 mile morning run/10 mile evening run

Thursday-9 mile morning run

Friday- 2 mile shakeout in the morning + core and abs. Drove to NC State for a 5k workout at Raleigh Relays. Super fun to get back on the track after a year. Also scary! Got in a good workout though, so mission accomplished.

Saturday-6 miles easy

Sunday-17 mile long run

Total: 85

I'm an aspiring elite runner from the DC/Northern VA area. I love road racing and am currently training for a half marathon in April. I write about attempting to balance a career with running and enjoying the process of training and improving!

    1. I know, I had to read this training log twice because “down week” and 85 miles didn’t compute the first time! Awesome. “Things that are probably not a thing, but seem like very serious issues to me while running” would make a good Friday 5′
