Time really got away from me! I know things have been busy with work, training, and other things in life, but I didn’t realize I was already two weeks behind posts. Training has been going well- I’m slowly but surely building up a good engine for the 2018 race season, my weight is slowly going down and the speed is going up, all good things! Ok, a brief summary of the past 2 weeks of training:
Week 6: 2/5 – 2/11 – Total Training Hours: 8:25 This was a step-back/easy week after three weeks of higher intensity and also to ‘save’ my legs for my big final Frostbite race. It worked, I won my age group with a 7:29 pace for the 3 mile race. It also earned me 2nd in my Age Group for the race series. 🙂
Week 7: 2/12 – 2/18 – Total Training Hours: 10:35 Back to the grind, the focus is still on building up my run mileage so my coach added on some more miles for a long run of 10 miles with 8 @ 8:49 tempo….which was ALL done on the treadmill thanks to some unexpected snow. I think the last time I ran that long on the treadmill was before I even did triathlons… maybe 2010? Regardless, it wasn’t as bad as I remembered. Now a 20 miler on the treadmill? No. Thank. You.
Well that’s about it, Happy Monday!
