Spearmint’s Training Log 4/23/2017

Hope everyone is doing well and had a great week! I’ve been working on getting back into the swing of normal training after taking a down week following my track 10k. The post-goal-race let down was real for a week or so, but I’m feeling back to normal finally! Anyone else ever feel like you have no motivation when you come off of a race you’ve been looking forward to for a while?

Here’s what I did last week…

Mon: 4 miles in the morning/10 miles in the evening.

Tues: 4 miles in the morning/Workout in the evening+lifting. 8×1000 with 1 minute rest. This workout didn’t go so great and I had a bad attitude about it from the very first step. Then I got grumpy about having a bad attitude and…well…sorry coach! Still working on that.

Wed: 4 miles in the morning/8 miles in the evening + core/abs.

Thurs: 4 miles in the morning/ Workout in the evening. 2 mile at HM pace-ish on the track, 3 mins rest and then straight into 2×2 miles on the roads at the same effort. Another 3 mins rest and back to the track for another 2 mile at HM pace. Core/abs afterwards.

HGTV: the main reason I put my weekend runs off as long as possible.

Fri: 10 miles in the evening

Sat: Long run

Sun: 4 miles easy after putting it off all day


Total: 90

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!
