Week 32

Race week arrived and I don’t think I’ve had a bigger case of the whatever’s.

I worked hard for 13 weeks and then the last 2 was eh. Life, right?

Things were a little crazy last week as I canceled my hotel room on Monday and then rebooking another on Thursday. Work had it’s moments and asthma and I aren’t getting along. But I had a great race weekend to look forward to and I was bringing multiple people with me this time. More fun, right?

Except, I need to stay out of stores that sell purses. Full Stop, seriously.

Running wise though, my runs went surprisingly well.

Plan vs Reality

Monday- Up/down 1.5 miles, 2x 1 mile at goal pace/ 3.5 miles
I set out to do the workout but wasn’t feeling it. Instead I ran- ok mostly walked- a warmup and then ran 2.5 of the steadiest miles I’ve run in a long time. I’m counting it as a win.

Tuesday- 1.5 miles/ MM 100 7
I had post work plans and just decided to not even try to run. I did however squeeze in a MM 100 workout. While I love the workouts, I decided after this to put them on hold until after the race- my hamstrings were so tight.

Wednesday- 1.5 miles/ 1.3 miles
Ever have that vain moment where you think -“I’ve done a week of MM100 workouts, those cute shorts should work for running now”? Haha, nope. 1.3 was all my thunder thighs could handle.

Thursday- 3 miles w/strides/ 3 miles w/ strides
I did exactly what the plan said! Yay!

Friday- 1.5 miles/ Rest
Nothing but work and heading home to pack for Oakland.

Saturday- Road trip!
We all packed up and away we went. We did a little shopping, some pizza eating before checking into the hotel. Then it was more shopping and more eating before trying to get some sleep before the race.

Sunday- 13.1 miles
Oaktown Half – Recap to come.

21.02 miles for the week.

How was your week?
