Mileage Happy New Year Monday

70 miles for the week! It’s so hard to get marathon training done during the winter months, especially with so many kids and with the youngest one being so young! But I make it a priority because I’m a neurotic, obsessive freak and if it wasn’t running then it would be some other weird shit that would most likely land me in jail.

Monday (Christmas Day)- I FIT THIS IN!!!! Twss. *sexy dance* Okay so, I had a split second this morning and ran 8 miles super fast. I did the first 5 miles at 7:13 pace and the last 3 at 6:49 pace.

Tuesday– Snow on the sidewalks so I logged these 11 miles on the road.

Wednesday– Still snowing, so I drove to a spot where I could run on trails for 10 miles.

Thursday– I copied Janae’s workout from a couple years ago (Hungry Runner Girl). Mile splits: 8 min, 7:03, 8 min, 6:44, 8 min. 6:44, 8 min, 6:44, 8 min, 8 min for 10 miles total.

Friday– Freezing rain and ice rinks for roads forced me onto the treadmill for my long run. 15 miles at 8 min/mile pace. Good thing I got this done in the morning because the power went out and stayed out for 16 hours!

Saturday– Just 9 easy treadmill miles at 8:30 pace.

Sunday– 7 miles through the snow and ice with Callum in the Chariot! Callum fell asleep, which is good because he will probably be up later tonight.

I need to get in a long run and some marathon pace tempo miles next week! The forecast looks a bit warmer so hopefully this snow will melt off and I can get a few solid workouts done. I turn 40 next Sunday, so I’m planning to run my long run on my birthday!

    I’m cold just looking at those pics, but glad you got the training in between bundling up and the treadmill! I hope the snow will melt and the weather will be good for your long run.

    This weather has made running a little more challenging for sure! We havent had too much snow but what we did have immediately turned to ice because it’s been so cold. Great job getting in your runs this week! Hopefully the weather improves soon.

    I’m hoping that our snow will melt soon too :/ is it bad if I’m already over it? I should have just stayed in Hawaii!!

    Happy early birthday! Any big plans other than running?
