Link up with Weekly Workouts + a Giveaway! (closed)

This giveaway is closed

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.

    As much as I love running I would have to say my favorite it circuit training. My instructor makes it fun, he often calls it circus training! Good luck on your race next weekend-fingers crossed for a PR!

    I love running, but I also love BodyPump!

    And I’m definitely going to do the Ranch Run this weekend, so we can meetup before it. Ah! A race! So thrilling but nerve-wracking at the same time. And what trail did you do? I found a very small trail in the area that was fun to do a few laps on (it was just around a little neighborhood lake). It is definitely noticeable how easy it is on the legs.

      Awesome! Did Dover trails this morning…nice and easy, some challenging dips and holes but kept me focused

    Running and mountain biking are my favorites. I have never seen that little accessory of yours–i can see how it would come in super handy though. (clever branding on their part)

    Happy new week!!
