Week in Training (February 13-19)

*Disclaimer: my workouts are designed specially for me by my coach, Jake Gillette. I will be giving you some general ideas of what I did over the last week, but not all the specifics since they are designed to meet the level I am at, for what my goals are, and it is also my coaches business.  

Family run

Race week is here again.  Saturday I will be going back to Chicago, with Tina with me this time, for the Mardi Gras 10k.  10k is not my favorite race distance, but it’s better than a 5k.  It will be nice to race again after about 4 weeks of just training.  

Last weeks training went alright with still cooler temps but a warm up in the future.  

  • Monday: 6 mile recovery from the 20 mile run
  • Tuesday: 8 miles with intervals
  • Wednesday: 6 miles recovery 
  • Thursday: 8 miles with a couple miles at a marathon pace and a mile at 10k pace
  • Friday: 8 miles easy
  • Saturday: 12 mile “long run”
  • Sunday: 0 miles rest day.
  • Weekly total: 48 miles
  • February total: 128
  • 2017 total 357.73

The hardest workout was Thursday but I was able to get my miles at close to goal times.  Next week will consist of a speed workout on Tuesday, with easy days the rest of the week before the Mardi Gras Chaser 10k.  I will even get a day off leading up to the race to get the legs ready.  Stay tuned for my per race blog!

  1. What’s your favorite race distance? Anywhere between a 10k and 10 miler is the sweet spot for me. Then the wheels sorta fall off a little. 😉
