Mileage Monday

Hey guys! I won’t be around here very much for a bit while we’re in the throes of newborn baby land, but I will keep putting up my Mileage Monday posts as well as a post here and there as I get time and inspiration! I actually have a Day in the Life post ready to go so I’ll slap that up tomorrow or something.

As far as my mileage last week went, I cranked out 73 miles for the week and broken down, looks like this:

Monday– All on the treadmill, the first 5 miles done at an 8 min/mile pace, a break to have some friends over, and then 7 miles in the afternoon, with 3 at 7:40 pace, 2 at 7:30 pace, with 2 cool down miles to make 12 total for the day.

Tuesday– I did 10 miles on the treadmill at an 8:34 min/mile pace while Jesse napped and while Callum was in preschool, and then Andrew and I took Jesse and Callum for stroller rides/runs in the evening sun. We only went 3 miles and we went slow and took lots of walk breaks.

Wednesday– Just an easy little jaunt on the treadmill (10 miles) while Jesse napped and while Callum drew all over the garage floor with chalk.

Thursday– Progression run, trying to fit it in while Callum was at preschool. I ran 3 miles with Jesse in the stroller and then 7 on the treadmill (5 miles at 8 min pace, 2 miles at 7:30 pace) to make 10 for the day.

Friday– Treadmill recovery at 9:13 pace for 8 miles!

Saturday– I got out with Callum in the stroller this morning! I SO needed the fresh air. We only had time for 4 miles, but it was heavenly. I ran a slow 6 miles later on in the day on the treadmill while Jesse napped. Marathon race pace tempo run on tap for tomorrow!

Sunday– SUPER HAPPY about how this went! I pumped a bottle and then headed out for my marathon race pace tempo run. 1 warm-up mile, 7 miles in 6:44, 6:46, 6:48, 6:50, 6:49, 6:46, 6:38 and 2 mile cool down for 10 miles total.

What’s new with you guys? Tell me what’s going on!!!

    What a great week of training and mileage! That’s a REALLY strong tempo run and I admire how you got all those miles in even on the treadmill. I miss your updates but totally understand how busy you are with the new baby and this season of life. Don’t worry, we will still be here when you are able to update but it’s fun to read them when they do come along :).

    Awesome job on that marathon pace run! I think you are Wonder Woman. Holy cow, I can’t even wrap my mind around that mileage, much less with a newborn. You are amazing! I hope Jesse is doing well 🙂

      I have no idea how my body does it. NO CLUE. Jesse is doing pretty good. He’s jaundice, and we took him for blood work last week and the technician botched it so we had to bring him back again, which sucked, but hopefully we can get some answers this time! Otherwise he’s doing really well–he’s growing and eating and pooping and sleeping well, and having lots of alert and awake time. He started smiling now too, which is SO CUTE! His personality is phenomenal!

    you are literally a machine. you run more than once a day a lot…. do you shower after each or nah? (no judgment… I’m wondering what a runner can get away with:) 🙂 )

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com October 2, 2017, 2:36 pm

      I do shower after each one! I don’t wash my hair though.

    If you could see my face right now, it would be my mouth hanging open…

    You amaze me.

    Please send me more Jesse and Callum pictures.

    Thank you for posting! Always fun to read. btw don’t worry about the jaundice, it will go away. If you can get him out in the sun it will help. Looking forward to Day in the Life!

    73 miles in one week, you crazy woman! I thought you were taking care of a baby, too 😉

    I’ve been busy road tripping with my cousin and girlfriend for the last few weeks, so I am just catching up.
