Army Ten Miler Training Log – Week 6

And just like that, I’m no longer in training!  I tried to take it as easy as I could this past week, so that my legs were as rested as they could be for yesterday’s race.  It was another busy week (with activities that I can’t share publicly yet, but hopefully you’ll understand why when I can share in another week), which made it difficult to rest up.  Nonetheless, everything seemed to work out since I PRed at yesterday’s Army Ten Miler and met my A goal!

Thurs 10/9 – Activity to later be announced

Fri 10/10 – Activity to later be announced, 3.32 mile run around the neighborhood, 0.32 mile cool down walk

Sat 10/11 – Rest day

Sun 10/12 – Army Ten Miler

Total Weekly Mileage – 20.87 miles (1.31 mile mores than week 5)

Total ATM Training Mileage – 87.85 miles

Of course, I’ll be recapping my entire race experience at a later date.  This race was much more physically and mentally challenging than I anticipated that it would be, but thank goodness Preston decided to run the race at my pace.  If it hadn’t been for his encouragement and support throughout the race, I’m not sure that I would have knocked five minutes off of my previous ten miler personal best.

Many of you have been asking me what’s next.  For now, I’m looking forward to the mental and physical break from training, and although I’m pretty sure that I know what’s next, I have yet to register.  Once I do, I’ll make the big announcement as to what my next major race will be!

QOTD: What is your next major race?

    Congrats to you on the ATM! This is the longest distance race I do, and this year’s was my second ATM. I guess my next one will probably be a Turkey Trot 5 or 10K, and after that I may do the Green Beret Jingle Bell Run.
