Spearmint’s Training Log 6/11/2017

Just out for a weekend drive with my cat. Totally normal.

A little late in getting last weeks log up but better late than never, right? Last week was a race week so it was a little lighter on miles, which was nice!

Monday: 4 miles in the morning/10 miles in the evening

Tuesday: 4 miles in the morning/Workout in the evening. It was just 2 sets of 3 K’s. The first 2 K’s of each set were at relaxed threshold pace and the last was at 5k race-pace. Finished up with core and abs

Wednesday: 5 miles in the morning/10 miles in the evening

Thursday: 4 miles in the morning/Quick pre-race workout in the evening. It was 12×400 followed by a fast K. Then I rushed off to meet Pesto at a Washington Nationals game!

Friday: 9 miles followed by core and abs

Saturday:ย 8 miles and strides before heading out to Portland for the race

Sunday: Morning shakeout/Race in the evening. It was a successful tuneup and finished in 15:48 for a little pr! Jumped on a red eye within an hour of the cooldown and got back just in time to go to work in the morning. ROUGH.

I’m the one looking as awkward as possible haha

Total: 83ish


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. Congrats on the PR! Ugh on the flight. Did that after a marathon once โ€” finished, showered, got on the plane. Woof.
