Running wild: weekly re-cap

This was a very low-mileage week since I had minor surgery on Thursday. I am secretly glad about the low miles, though, because I think my sore legs needed a (forced) break. Crossing my fingers that next week I can start ramping back up my miles so I am ready for the Seattle Rock-n-Roll half marathon. I am starting to realize that I may not be able to run my goal of 1:55 in the R-n-R, though. My body may just not be ready to run a half marathon PR barely two weeks out of surgery.

Total miles: 11.5

Monday: 3 miles
Monday is supposed to be my rest day, but there were more exciting things to do than rest! Eloise's school was doing a fundraising run, and of course Iris and I had to join in! Kids and adults were running laps around the school yard, six laps equaled one mile. Iris and I did three miles and Eloise did close to five! So proud of those kids.

Tuesday: 3 miles
We were doing 400s all night at my intervals class, which I despise with a deep, burning passion. I also wasn't feeling totally well so I took it pretty easy.

Wednesday: 5.5 miles
This was a fantastic run. I did two laps around Greenlake at a 9:03 pace and felt great and strong the whole time. I didn't mean for it to be a tempo run, but since I wasn't dragging I just went with it.

Thursday: off
I had a relatively minor surgical procedure done on Thursday so that meant lots of rest from that day on. I was hoping to run in the morning but I had forgotten that I couldn't eat before the surgery and I didn't want to run and come home famished and then not really get to for the rest of the day.

Friday: off

Saturday: off from running, hiked 3.75 miles
We went for a hike at Twin Falls that I probably shouldn't have gone on. I didn't realize how hilly it would be, so I was really tired and sore by the end. Luckily I was able to go home and lay down and relax the rest of the day.

Sunday: off
