Well friends it’s time for another weekly rundown. This week was my first official week of base training for Run Rabbit Run 50 Mile. I have 5 weeks of base training to get my endurance dialed up before 24 weeks of specific training starts on April 1st.
This last week was not a killer week. The kids and I were all still really sick. I always think I am going to bounce out of a cold feeling great after 2-3 days but that never happens. After sevenish days of being really sick, I was feeling over it but it took a while to feel slightly normal again. The begining was short bits just to get myself moving and then ended the week a little stronger.
Monday: Quick 2 mile shake out on the treadmill with pick – ups.
Tuesday: Inside again on the treadmill, jogged a mile and called it a warm up for some strength training.
Wednesday: Took the kids in the stroller for a loop outside, 1.8ish miles.
Thursday: By Thursday I was feeling a little better so I took the kids to the gym and ran 3.3 miles on the treadmill while they were in child sitting. Emmy still isn’t a fan =(
Friday: Quick treadmill mile + some strength training.
Saturday: We got about five inches of fresh snow but I couldn’t handle another day inside. It was cold but very pretty!
Sunday: On Sunday I talked Cory into running with the kids and me. 5.8 chilly miles around the neighborhood. Cory tacked on another couple miles, he is training for a half ironman in May.
All miles this week were easy as I build up my base. This week has me dreaming of warmer (and lighter) days, spring please come!
Totals: 19 miles running and 2 strength training sessions. I am hoping that I can stay healthy for at least a month!
How is your training?
Are you looking forward to summer?
