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!
Mon 10/6 – 35 minutes on the elliptical, kettlebell squat swings, abs, arms, shoulders, glutes, chest, back
Tues 10/7 – Activity to later be announced
Wed 10/8 – 3.25 mile run around the neighborhood, 0.18 mile cool down walk
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?
