Weekly Training Log – Week of April 20th

Wow, what an incredible weekend this past weekend was!  If you follow me on Social Media then you already know why it was such an incredible weekend: I PRed at both Saturday and Sunday’s races!  Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would have a double PR weekend!

I can’t wait to recap both races this week!  And I hope that my high from my double PR weekend continues well into the coming week!

My two races this past weekend capped off a great week of training.  With only one more week until I restart half marathon training again, I know that its important that I continue to focus on strength training and running maintenance this coming week.  The stronger that I am before I start training for Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach, the stronger I will be throughout my training and on race day.

Tues 4/21 – 1.67 mile walk around the neighborhood with Riley

Wed 4/22 – 3.10 mile run on the treadmill, 0.35 mile cool down walk, legs, glutes, abs, arms, shoulders

Thurs 4/23 – Rest day

Fri 4/24 – Rest day

Sat 4/25 – Jaguar 5k

Sun 4/26 – Manassas Runway 10k
