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 cool that you found it. Are you guys coming to WI this summer? :)

  2. Thanks Stephanie! What half is she training for? We will be in WI this summer, I will email you. Early August. Hope we can see you!
