The highlight of my week was returning home and racing the Columbus Half Marathon. Boulder saw its first accumulated snow this fall, and it was beautiful…cold, but beautiful!
Sunday: Columbus Half Marathon plus additional mileage to help pace a friend running the marathon. Overall finish was 1:32:57, and then I added another seven miles to total 20 for the day.
Monday: Rest day. Lots of mileage plus a late night plus traveling equaled a nice rest day.
Tuesday: Bike about 27 miles mostly into a headwind. Tailwind got me to 42mph without pedaling. An easy 3.5 mile run at the weekly Lululemon group run, average of 9:05/mile.
Wednesday: 8.2 miles with a great group before the snow started. Great conversation and race discussion, averaging 8:06/mile. Some core work and lifting in the afternoon.
Thursday: Circuit class for 45 mins. which included sprint sessions and boxing. Spent the rest of the day resting since I wasn’t feeling too well.
Friday: A very chilly and icy four miles in just under 32 minutes. A lot of slipping and sliding! Some weights and core in the afternoon
Saturday: Crisp and chilly, but beautiful. Four miles in 30:17, progression run starting at 8:21 and ending at 6:43. Spent hours hiking in the mountains and enjoying the beautiful views!
