weekly recap / June 6-12

A bit late!  Here we go … had a few blips which made my mileage slightly less, but still a solid week … biggest lacking area was I really didn’t do much non running training.

44.4 miles

Monday
train wreck of a day in running terms (thank goodness running terms aren’t the only terms of a day) – alarm didn’t go off Monday morning (MAD FACE) –
so did 30 min cardio extreme 

3.1 miles, 26:34, 8:43 pace – ran after dinner – my neighbor brought down some of his INCREDIBLE chocolate chip cookies and let’s just say 2 of them was a BADBADBADBAD idea – thought I was going to YAK. Walked 1/2 mile home. SO much for 6 miles :(

Tuesday
early morning – 6 miles, 47:57, 7:59 pace
evening – 4 miles, 32:46, 8:11 pace – felt surprisingly good, ran mostly on soft surfaces :)

Wednesday
my birthday run!!!
5.27 miles, 42:09, 8:00 pace – tired legs! 

Thursday
planned on an afternoon run, but I was EXHAUSTED.  Opted to skip the run.

Friday
8.08 miles, 1:04:32, 8:00 pace – resting yesterday proved to be a wise choice – felt SOOO much better today!

Saturday
18 miles, 2:24:12, 8:01 pace
such a solid long run! Right hamstring definitely sore though

doubles

Training for this Ragnar Ultra (6 person team instead of 12 person) I am planning to run a few weeks of doubles, and/or evening run followed up a morning run.  I’ve signed up for the Seattle Half Marathon on June 18 so I won’t do doubles that week (I’m not going to taper, just back off to more normal).  So that leaves 3-4 weeks for doubles before I start tapering.

I ran a tempo run on the treadmill yesterday morning and then an easy run yesterday evening, and ran again this morning.  I plan to run tomorrow afternoon/evening and then again Friday morning.

I am very much taking it 1 week at a time, as well as having to balance all the end of the school year activities for my family.  So we’ll see what next week holds :)
