2018: Training Weeks 6 & 7

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!
