Weekly training re-cap

This post contains affiliate links.

Here’s a look at this week’s training. It was my first full week back post-Cowtown. I’ll admit I was a little nervous and unsure how this week would go. It was great! I tried some new workouts and I’m looking forward to what the next few months and year will bring.

My next race is the Zooma Texas half on April 12. I’d like to keep my half time under 2 hours, it’s an unfamiliar course and I know it will be hilly, but I have a goal. We have hills here and I run them weekly so hills shouldn’t be an issue for me. I have a long term goal for a few races this year. More on that on Monday in the Goals Check post.

Don’t forget to use the code TXAMB9 for 10% off the Texas Zooma race, they offer 5k, 10k and half.

I do plan to get back to Sunday workouts starting tomorrow. I’m going to try the spin class at my gym for cross training.

Sunday: Rest day. Sort of unplanned, the sleet started moving in.

Monday: Rest day

Tuesday: First track workout. 2 mile warm-up, 8×200′s, light jog in between, 2 lap cool down

Wednesday: Gym, elliptical, sprints, abs, arms, sit-ups with the 4lb ball and threw it at the wall in between.

Thursday: 5 miles, 9:45 pace. Then track that evening for abs and conditioning.

Friday: Rest Day

Saturday: 6 miles, 9:28 pace, followed by stretching and weights at the gym.

I had a great run this morning, felt like I was really pushing myself on the pace at some points. ¬†I’m off for a few days next week so I’m trying to get “chores” done today so I don’t have to spend Monday and Tuesday doing them.

I got a few fun things in the mail this week too. Look for  product reviews and a few giveaways coming soon!

    I know hills are hard but I like running them. Maybe it is because after getting them done you feel so accomplished! It’s a good feeling. I had a short yoga practice in the morning and then my husband and I (along with our dog) took advantage of the nice weather and we went to a local walking trail. We ended up walking 5 miles!!! I had a run planned but things came up and I never got to it. Kinda bummed about it, but oh well. I am not racing this weekend but I am looking forward to the LA marathon on Sunday!

  2. I so wish that you live closer because I would totally train with you! My half is on April 13th! Your schedule looks an awful lot like mine:) Super pumped for the giveaways coming up!

Tell me what you think!
