This past week was another whirlwind week! After getting home last Sunday evening from the Outer Banks, we were only home for five nights before we left for Kentucky for wedding #2 of the year.
Having two weddings two weekends in a row not only made for an exhausting week, but it also challenged me to fit everything I’d normally accomplish at home over two weekends into the five nights we were here at home. Between laundry and other household chores, as well as working on paperwork for our new house, little time was left for training after I got home from work each day. But I was up for the challenge, and had a very productive and successful training week given how crazy it was!
Mon 6/2 – 2.37 mile run in the neighborhood
Tues 6/3 – 2.40 mile powerwalk on the treadmill at varying inclines, glutes, arms, shoulders, back, abs
Wed 6/4 – 3.10 mile treadmill run, 0.26 mile cool down walk, abs, glutes, legs
Thurs 6/5 – Rest day
Fri 6/6 – Rest day
Sat 6/7 – 3.10 mile treadmill run, 0.46 mile cool down walk
Sun – Rest day
Total Weekly Mileage – 11.69 miles (3.85 miles more than week 5)
Total Half Marathon Training Mileage – 73.27 miles
This coming week I’ll be getting back on track with my training plan. Having known that I’d be out of town two weekends in a row, I forged forward a bit back during week 4 with my long run mileage, when I ran 6.68 miles. Next coming weekend I’m scheduled to run 8 miles, and I’m crossing my fingers that it goes well since its been a couple of weeks since my last long run.
This week isn’t going to be easy physically, but I’m up for the challenge. I’m always after improvement, and even if my speed is slow going this week as I work towards getting back into a regular routine, I know that the progress will be worth it in the end.
QOTD: How do you adjust your training calendar in order to accommodate a busy schedule outside of training?
