Woohoo – what a great week for running. I don’t know how long I’ll be able to keep it up, but I met my informal goal of getting in at least 20 miles. Before I get to the mileage- first, the fun stuff.
Congrats to Caryn, who won my giveaway last week! Caryn wins entry to the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon. AND congrats to Cari, who won my Instagram giveaway – the book, Running with the Police Escort, by local Cleveland runner and fellow marathon ambassador Jill.
Okay, onto the miles. I rounded out the week with 22.25 miles:
Sunday: 2.5 miles on the treadmill while FW slept. He only slept for 20ish minutes, thus the short run.
Monday: 3.2 miles on the treadmill.
Tuesday: 6 miles on the treadmill. Ran for about 5 and had a .75 mile warmup and .25 mile cool down.
Wednesday: 3.85 miles on the treadmill (sensing a pattern?).
Thursday: 2.5 miles on the treadmill. Legs felt pretty heavy so I ended up hitting up the elliptical after the short run.
Friday: None – rest day!
Saturday: 4.2 miles OUTSIDE. That’s right – OUTSIDE!
B, FW and I went to the park to run because it was 60 degrees and it was GREAT. It felt so great to run outside and AND B pushed the stroller through all the uphills so that helped 🙂 FW didn’t put up a fuss until the last .5 miles or so. You can see he’s not happy in the above picture B took.
And that was it for the week – almost 23 miles!
It’s supposed to get cold again this week, so we’ll see if I am able to get outdoors at all. I’m so glad I was able to enjoy the warmer January weather this past weekend! It makes all the difference.
I haven’t started officially training for the Cleveland half yet, but I probably should soon. The longest run I’ve done post-pregnancy has been 6 or 7 miles so I still have a ways to go!
Cheers to a great week of training and running!
Disclosure: As a Cleveland Marathon Ambassador, I receive complimentary race entry AND a free race entry to give away! I also get a cool t-shirt (should be here soon!) and invited to some special events. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
