Weekly Workout Recap 1/25-1/31

Last week was an pretty good week! Despite some minor pain-in-the-ass moments, my workouts were pretty good, although I didn’t get in as many as I’d have liked to. I’m a little late joining in Megan’s recap because I worked both jobs Monday and Tuesday so I’ve been super busy and have barely had a moment to myself! I also work both tomorrow so today is the day I get to cram everything in…next week I’ll be lucky if I get to recap this week’s training because there practically isn’t any. My first race of the season is Saturday though and I know I’m well trained up to this point so I’m trying not to feel too bad about my lack of ability to train this week.

Monday, January 25: Took an additional rest day today- from everything. Took a nap after work too- I was supposed to work my second job but skipped it because my body was literally exhausted and needed some quality rest.

Tuesday, January 26: 40 minute easy run. This week was a “rest week” in my training plan, so all my workouts were easier paced than normal with only one speed/tempo workout scheduled. It felt good to be able to run and not have to hit prescribed pacing or worry about anything other than loving the run! I felt better today than yesterday and practiced some new intervals- 1:30/:30 which is what I hope to use in my upcoming half at Disney Princess. The heat was a little overwhelming today. 3.5 miles, 11:20 pace

Tuesday Training Run

Wednesday, January 27: Today I did a track workout- I actually got in trouble because I got there before school let out! I didn’t know it- I arrived around 3:30 (most schools are out in my area by this time) but was told that school didn’t get done until 4:30 so I had to leave and come back. (This is weird to me- what kind of middle school starts as late as 9:30 in the morning?!) Anyway, when I did get the chance to come back I had a killer workout! 6×400 @ 8:45 pace with 400 m recovery intervals, 3.0 miles

Track workout Wednesday

Thursday, January 28: I worked a double today so no workout.

Friday, January 29: I came down with a weird stomach bug today so I didn’t run. I’m not sure what it was because it wasn’t nausea and I didn’t feel sick otherwise.

Saturday, January 30: I was planning to wake up and run today but I was still feeling sick this morning when I woke up so I slept in a little and went to work during the day. I traveled to Tampa later in the evening for the rest of the weekend.

Sunday, January 31: Afternoon run in a new location- Flatwoods Park. I love exploring new places, but I did get confused by the double mile markers and ended up adding a few miles to what I had originally planned on doing when I took a different turn! Oops. It was a peaceful day though and although there were other people in the park, for the most part I felt like I was alone with my thoughts, which is always a fun way to run. My pace was horrible though- I ran out of water and was sort of dehydrated halfway through. It was really sunny out and hardly any shade as well. Β 7.39 miles, 12:57 pace

This month has been a pretty good one in training- I ended up with 63 miles total for January! I’m actually in a mileage challenge on Smash Run so I’m hoping to increase my mileage by a total of 5 miles per month for 6 months- it’ll be challenging for sure but maybe that’s what I need to keep some motivation going! Last year I had months where I trained and had great mileage and then other months where I barely ran at all, so the goal this year is to be more consistent with it.
