So it looks like with all of the craziness of RnRAZ, I missed Week 10 Recap. In a nutshell:
Sunday, 1/12–Cross Training Day, 12 miles on the bike
Monday, 1/13–Rest Day
Tuesday, 1/14–Tempo 5 miler
Wednesday, 1/15–Typically, this is my speed day but my husband had to work late. I did 4 miles when he got home at a faster pace than usual for this distance. 8:30/mile pace. It was hard!
Thursday, 1/6–Cross Training Day, 10 miles on the bike
Friday, 1/17–Rest Day
Saturday, 1/18–Warm up 2 miler for #megsmiles
Sunday, 1/19–RnR Arizona 1/2 Marathon!! Read all about it here 🙂
Monday, 1/20–Rest day. My husband went out of town this day for the rest of the week so I knew I wouldn’t be able to run. It worked out because I was forced to let myself recover from the half. I needed it. I knew that if he was here, I would have been back out running and not giving myself the rest I needed.
Tuesday-Thursday, 1/21-23–I did several Blogilates videos at home when the kids were in bed.
Friday, 1/24–Husband came home!! I immediately handed the kids over and went for a 2 mile run. When I got back, my daughter was saying, “Out!” So, I put her in the jogger and went for a 1 mile jog with her for a total of 3 miles. Boy, it felt good to be back out there.
Saturday, 1/25–18 MILES!!! I was worried about this long run all week. It was on my training plan, but I was concerned that since I hadn’t run all week (since the 1/2 on Sunday) I wouldn’t be able to make the full 18 miles or that I would really struggle. Luckily, a girl in my run club also had an 18 miler in her plan so we made a date to run together. It made the run sooo much easier and even though our times weren’t the best, we had a blast chatting it up and enjoying our beautiful Arizona weather.
–How was your running week?
–Did you have a Saturday long run?
–Do you like running with a buddy or are you a solo runner? (I typically run by myself but this long run needed a partner 🙂 )
