This week’s training was definitely better than last week’s. I am finally getting over my sinus sickness and am feeling better. It’s challenging to run when you can’t breathe. I am still working to ease back into training after taking a short break after Chicago. I talked a little bit about my upcoming races a while back. You can read more about them here.
As of right now I am feeling good about the Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon. I will actually be sharing my goals for that race tomorrow. I am however feeling quite under prepared for the trail 15K that I am running later this month. It’s been so rainy here and the trails have been a mess. I am hoping it dries out soon so I can hit the trails.
SUNDAY: 5 easy recover miles
Most mornings start with smoothies and coffee. Right now I am loving Chocolate Covered Katie’s chocolate covered cherry smoothie.
TUESDAY: 2 speed work miles on the treadmill + kettlebells
I’ve been watching a lot of Ginger Runner’s vlogs this week. All of his films are so inspiring.
THURSDAY: 3.2 treadmill miles
The firm I work for did throw a Halloween party and the children did some trick or treating. The kids loved the clementines.
FRIDAY: 4 miles (2 miles of hill repeats)
It was jeans day at work so I decided to rock my Colfax Marathon shirt under a grey boyfriend sweater. If my secretary can wear her adventure shoes on a regular day then I can wear a marathon shirt on a jeans Friday. #rebellious
SATURDAY: 9.2 miles with the Mr.
The foliage around our neighborhood is stunning right now. Nothing says I’m done with my long run like a leftover homemade meatball sub, cozy socks and dog snuggles. Saturday was a cool windy day.
How is your training routine going?
Do anything exciting for Halloween? We spent the night in with movies and hard cider. It was lovely.
