Running wild: weekly re-cap

It has been a really, really wonderful week. Training runs, taper and a big race! Not much more to say about the week other than the fact that while I really do enjoy racing, the taper is a little tough! Two days before and two days after a race is just a huge chunk of time to me!

Total miles: 21.29

Monday: Rest

Tuesday: 3 miles

Intervals class night! I tried to take it a little easy. We ran 4x800s with a 400 cool down lap after each one. It was a good workout!

Wednesday: 5 miles

Warm and sunny 5 miles, my last training run before R-n-R! I felt really good through the whole thing and it helped me feel even more excited for race day.

Thursday: Rest

I actually didn't intend for this to be a rest/taper day, but life got extremely hectic on Thursday. I didn't go to my usual bootcamp class because I went to a party, instead (will blog about that soon!) and had literally no other time to run that day unless I wanted to get up extremely early, which I am NOT good at. I decided to call it a taper day and be okay with it.

Friday: Rest

Friday is typically a rest day, and it was also very busy, so I was fine taking it as a taper day.

Saturday: 13.29 miles

I already wrote just about all I could write about this race HERE so I won't re-hash it too much. The one thing I will say here is that my mileage was over by .2. That seems like nothing, I am sure, except when you are trying to gun for a PR on a very hilly course!

Sunday: Rest

I so, so wish I could have done some kind of exercise on Sunday besides run. My legs could not run. A swim in a pool or something would have felt nice!

  1. I just read and thoroughly enjoyed your marathon recap, Sybil!! My friend is training for a half and I am sending her a link to your blog today. :) I'm so proud of you. You can hear the happiness in your voice when you talk (write) about your running...so cool that you found it. Are you guys coming to WI this summer? :)
