This weekend I had to keep in mind I was semi-preparing to race next weekend… Ok, so I AM racing next weekend. I need redemption, badly…on this race, as many of you already know that day is one I don’t forget easily.
As part of my half marathon training I signed up for the HCSO Youth Ranch Run 15k that’s next Saturday; fingers crossed that I kick butt and set a new PR so I can put Gasparilla this year behind me…forever! 😉
Looking at this week’s workouts, I did pretty well for my first 5 run week (after a few naps)
Monday: 3 mi moderate run + crosstraining WOD Tuesday: 5 mi tempo-moderate run Wednesday: crosstraining WOD Thursday: 5 mi speed workout w/ 4 x 800s + 400 repeats Friday:REST (including a massage!) Saturday: 10 mi long run at easy pace Sunday: 4 mi recovery trail run
It was great this weekend running with some faces I hadn’t seen in a while and trying to not focus on how fast I was going, but how I felt with the tight hammy and with be making sure to keep the right form too. I really dug running the trails this morning, too, as it was a great chance of pace and softer on my lil legs. I’ve done the trails before, but it’s been almost a year or so – is this a fun new Sunday routine? I was able to also try out this beauty:
I tested out my new Handana on the run today. It’s a very neat concept of a sweatband, on your hand, that makes it easy when headbands just aren’t cutting it or arm bands just don’t cooperate…or end up doubling as Garmin arm cushions like mine usually do. It really came in handy with our humidity still being a factor without being too much of a distraction!
trail run. done.
