After being on vacation last week and completely slacking, I knew even just getting in an extra mile or two this week was important. As of right now, I usually do 3 runs during the work week and then my long run on the weekend. During one of my runs this week I was trying to calculate how my weeks were going to look once I was into the 25+ mile weeks. Fridays are going to be my best bet and will have to become my “overflow days.”
Any other runners have a secret to squeezing in those extra miles? Any opinions on two-a-day runs???
So here’s how this week added up:
Tuesday: 3.6 treadmill, joined Trae for an early morning workout at the gym
Wednesday: 4.3 mile trail run with my friend Sam. I’m pretty sure I convinced her to train for a September 10k, which I’m really excited about. Running is such a passion of mine and when I can share it with others it’s a great feeling. I’m hoping it wasn’t the heat talking…
Thursday: Phew what a hot one, 5 mile tempo run with Tanya. You can find the splits and read about it here.
Friday: rest day spent laying out in the pool with family
Saturday: rest, 25 squats. I decided to start working out the other muscles in my legs and will be doing a daily squat build up.
Sunday: Long Run – 10.5 miles total, 10.10 ran (1:48:43, 10:45 min pace) and .40 cool down walk, 50 squats
TOTAL: 23.40 miles and 75 squats
4 weeks down, 18 weeks to go!
How did your weekly miles add up???
