Regardless of the horrid weather, it didn't hold me back from my training.
Monday - REST!
Tuesday - 3.5 miles. 44 degrees, melting snow. I even ran without a vest and gloves.
Wednesday - 7 miles. We had another (last??? please!) snowstorm come rolling in Wednesday. The forecast was calling for a pretty bad afternoon, which resulted in an early dismissal. I took advantage of my "extra" time and hit the gym.
Thursday - 6 miles. No school today, but the gym didn't close. I was scheduled to work so I went in a little early and got in my speed workout. Nailed it. Warm up/7:30/recovery/7:20/recovery/7:00/cooldown. Felt fantastic!!!
Friday - 3.3 miles. Easy after school miles. No picture. I'm a slacker.
Saturday - 6 miles. But today I had two pictures! I ran 6 miles for Jaime, the young mom who was killed this past week. It breaks my heart to think of her grieving family. To think that there is always a chance that I could be struck and killed when out for a run is a scary thought, but a real one that races through my head quite a bit lately.
To break up the treadmill run, I pulled out a 6:54 mile mid run for Happy Fit Mama's March Challenge.
Sunday - 6.8 miles. On the treadmill. Again. But the window beside me was wide open. I do appreciate the treadmill and the ability to get in safe miles. I just miss running on the rail trail. Melt snow! Melt!
Weekly Total: 32.1 miles
#ffmarchmiles total: 91.23 miles
I have a sneaky suspicion that today is going to be a rest day. The last couple of days I've been battling a head cold. I feel great when I'm running, but as soon as I stop, the head clouds up and nose starts running. I'll see how I feel when I get out of work and make my decision then. Rest days are a super important piece to training and in general.
How's your training going?
