Another week closer to summer! I’m sorry I’m counting down the days. So ready for 6th grade to be done. Ready to not have so much in our schedule. (is that even possible?)
Ally had 2 games this week and she pitched her first whole game. I couldn’t be prouder! This week was also her 6th grade track meet. She came in 2nd place in her heat in the 200 meter race and her relay team got 2nd place in the 4×100.
I got a new Influenster Box this week too. It has lots of goodies in it, it’s a sport themed box. Can’t wait to try this stuff out!
This week training was a little lighter. I’ve been feeling an ache in my left ankle and thinking it may be tendonitis. Some runner friends suggested a few different stretches and convinced me to take a few days off. So, no long run for me this weekend.
Training this week:
Sunday: 4 miles with Allyson, average 9:36 pace per mile
Monday: Rest day
Tuesday: Track workout, 2 mile warm-up, 8×400 with 400 rest, workout target pace between 1:45 and 1:50.
Wednesday: Gym day with abs, legs and the sauna
Thursday: My first tempo run, 8 miles total with 2 mile warm-up, 2 miles sub 8, 1 mile recovery, 2 miles sub 8, 1 mile cool down, over all pace 8:26 per mile
Friday: Rest day
Saturday: Rest day
I will more than likely hit the gym sometime this weekend, but I think no running until at least Tuesday, maybe longer. I’m icing and stretching and rolling every muscle in my legs. I have a half in 10 days, with a PR in mind for it. I’ve been training for it and have a pacer. I’m really looking forward to it so I will rest now to be able to run later.
Ally is running a half marathon relay the same day. Her leg is 5.5 miles. It’s the furthest she’s raced. We did run/walk a 10k last year but that was not a good day. Things went south quick and she and I both prefer not to count that day. There are a few hills involved but since it’s here in our town, we can train the course. We ran 4 miles last Sunday and I hope to be able to do that again with her this week.
Did you workout today?
Anyone racing or running long?
Let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. Hebrews 12:1
