Training Tuesday: Outside Again!

You GUYS – I ran outside 3.5 times last week!!! That is 3.5 more times than I’ve been running. And it makes me so happy!!!

ok this picture was from LAST week but it's me at the Malachi run and another outside run!

Anyway, here’s a little recap of how last week’s runs went:

Week of 3/13: 21.59 miles running/walking

Sunday: 0 miles

Took the day off after the Malachi Church Run.

Monday: 6.17 miles total – run in the AM AND PM.

I wasn’t planning on running in the AM that day, but for some reason I couldn’t sleep. I woke up at 3 a.m. and was unable to get back to bed, so after cleaning my closet and semi cleaning the kitchen, I opted to head outside in the 50 degree (near perfect running temps) and get in about 2 miles before hitting the gym. And then that night was the Cleveland Marathon Fleet Feet Pub Run – an event I had already planned on attending – so there were another 3.8 miles run outside with tons of other runners, including B and Mary, for free beer! (I obviously didn’t partake in the beer)

pre-pub run with Mary. Look at all those people in the background!

Tuesday: no run, just elliptical. My feet were hurting and legs were tired.

Wednesday: 1.3 miles before the elliptical. Tired legs AGAIN.

Thursday: 4.62 miles. OUTSIDE before work!

It’s not often I get an outdoor run in, but I was happy to get in a run before St. Patrick’s Day. I was planning on running around downtown and seeing if people were out and about – and they already were!

Had to stop and take a picture of the Terminal Tower all green for the day! (and a great excuse to stop mid-run)

Friday: 5 miles walk and run.

I decided to run for time and not for distance today. It’s something I’m not good at doing and I wanted to walk/run on the treadmill. So I focused on just keeping up the workout and varied on my speeds.

Saturday: 4.5 miles OUTSIDE again!

And that was it! Another so-so week of running – but a great week of pregnancy runs in my book for this Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon Ambassador. Woop woop!

Some questions for you:

  • What Amazon Prime videos or TV shows are you digging that I should watch while running?
  • Do you prefer running in the a.m. or p.m.? AM. Always. I hate and hardly ever run after work unless I have an event (like the pub run).

  1. nicely done! i am such a morning runner by preference, but the past 2 weeks since i got back from vaca and with the time change, i literally cannot get up. i snooze for over an hour every day these days! gah. at least i’m getting runs in a few nights a week and both weekend days…but i cannot WAIT for the warmer weather.

  2. It’s so awesome that you’re running strong through your pregnancy!

    I love morning runs too! I just have so much trouble getting out there unless it’s light out, so I’ve been at the gym in the evenings too much for my liking. 😦
