Running wild: weekly re-cap

This week has just been a lesson in complete frustration, with one shining moment of obliterating my former 5K PR and another shining moment of smashing my one mile PR.

Total miles run: 17

Monday: 2 miles on the treadmill, 45 minutes on the elliptical

I checked out our local gym and put myself to work.

Tuesday:  3 miles

It was the last intervals class of the session so we ran a timed mile as part of the workout. My previous PR was 7:22, and my new one is 7:04! SO close to a sub-7:00, but that is definitely do-able for me now. Very exciting. I wasn't sure I could run much, let alone run fast, so I didn't have any expectation for myself.

Wednesday: 3.3 miles on the treadmill, 30 minutes on the elliptical

Another day at the gym.

Thursday: 1.6 miles

At bootcamp we did enough running for me to count it in my total miles. It's funny to say this, because I am a runner, but I HATE when we have to run at bootcamp. I run every other time I train, I just want to focus on my strength at bootcamp.

Friday: rest

Saturday: 3.1 miles

West Seattle Float Dodger 5K! Race re-cap to come. I set a HUGE PR of 23:45!

Sunday: 4 miles run, 54 minutes on the elliptical

Sunday is my long run day, so all of the time I didn't spend running I had to do on the elliptical. I met my buddies for the run and hoped I would feel okay, as I felt totally fine the day before at my race. My knee had other plans and I bowed out of the run at four miles and drove to the gym. I got all of my time in, though!
