I never got around to recapping week 13 last week so I will do a quick rundown of both week 13 and 14 here. Week 13 was the last big week before tapering. In hindsight I am not sure that I really needed to taper for three weeks but that ship has sailed. I already feel itchy and restless wanting to run more miles. Trying to just focus on this marathon but I am excited that I finally handed over my money for my big summer race.
I always love seeing the sunrise on my runs.
Tuesday: 4 easy miles in the evening
Wednesday: 5.6 steady miles in the evening around the hood
Thursday: Early morning easy 4 miler since I had drinks with the girls planned for the evening. So nice to see friends that I hadn’t seen in awhile.
Friday: I wanted to get a little bit longer of a run in but it’s so dark in the morning still so I jumped on the basement treadmill and the miles flew by. So nice to Netflix and Treadmill.
Saturday: easy 6 miles
Sunday: Last long run of this training cycle! I headed to Boulder to run trails, it was a beautiful day and I took it nice and easy. It was still probably not enough elevation gain for my race but it is what it is. Done early so we had plenty of time for an afternoon birthday party.
Running: 63.35 miles total, I believe this might be my biggest week ever.
Monday: Full rest day.
Tuesday: 4 early morning miles, legs felt pretty good after a rest day. Lot’s of wildlife out now the spring is here!
Wednesday: Speed work on the treadmill – half and quarter mile repeats. Trying to find a little turnover.
Thursday evening I finally pulled the trigger and signed up for the Leadville Silver Rush 50 miler….slightly scared.
Friday: Set out for 4 miles but legs felt really good so added on another mile.
Saturday: Easy 6 miles
Sunday: We celebrated my mom’s birthday in the morning (sneaking Cannon a bite of cupcake…..)
so my normal morning long run was moved to the afternoon. I am not used to running in the afternoon sun and burned my arms, whoops! 14.3 warm miles on the local trails.
Running: 41.3 miles – let the taper madness begin….
