Mileage Monday

This was supposed to be an easy recovery week but I felt so good by Saturday that I went for a marathon race pace tempo run and blew the whole “recovery” part of recovery week. Whoops!

Monday– Super chill 10 mile treadmill run at 8 min/miles while Callum was at daycare and Jesse napped. I got a lot done today and it feels AMAZING.

Tuesday– Slow treadmill run while Callum was at preschool and Jesse was napping. I’m dealing with some sort of stomach virus. I feel like crap.

Wednesday– A 10 mile run with intervals thrown in just to make it go by faster. I alternated between 7 min/mile pace and 8 min/mile pace.

Thursday– I did 8 miles with Jesse in the stroller and then 6 miles outside later on by myself because Andrew came home early!

Friday– A nice little 7 mile treadmill run at 8:30 min/mile pace. Taking recovery week seriously!

Saturday– Well, I blew recovery week. 14 miles with 12 at marathon race pace (average 6:48 min/miles).

Sunday– 7 recovery miles, super slow, neighborhood run.

    Do you ever wear compression socks? And if so do you like them?
    Also, what do you keep your keys, phone etc in? I have a flip belt but their hard to wear with shorts.

      They’re. Not their. Lol

      Hey Erin! I don’t really wear compression socks, no. I wore them once, and I didn’t notice a difference. I think they look cute though, and my daughter is tie-dying them for me. 😛

      I have a spi belt. I LOVE that thing. I keep my phone in there. I strap it around just below my waistband of my shorts/leggings, and then my shirt or jacket or whatever goes over top of that. It doesn’t bounce or shift. It really is a modern miracle. HA!

    OMG a stomach virus? I hope you are feeling better and that the kids didn’t get it too!

    I hope you are feeling better after that stomach virus! 12 miles at marathon pace is a hard workout but I bet you will feel so comfortable at that pace on race day!

    I’m so impressed you did so many miles at marathon race pace. That is awesome. Hope the stomach bug is all gone.
