It’s been a full (peak mileage) week, so let’s catch up…
Met up with the Breakfast Club on a cold, rainy morning for a run. Apparently we really like our Asics Storm Shelter Jackets!
Found this quote:
I mentioned in an earlier post that I was one of the Top 50 Fleet Feet customers. I was just excited to be on the list. Well guess what?!! I received a 20% off card that’s good for one year…woo hoo!!!
I had to get creative with my long run this week. My schedule called for 8 miles on Friday and 20 miles on Saturday. I’m super disciplined about sticking to my plan, but the holidays can be tricky. So…
15 miles. Some days are just tough. I can tell that I’m nearing the end of 50k training.
Followed by PiYo Core. When it comes to cross training right now, low-impact is my friend!
My family Christmas dinner party was Friday night. My step-dad hosts it and it’s always a special night with family and friends that I’ve know my whole life.
The dinner menu:
Of course we took Veuve in a fun faux fur bag from Restoration Hardware
And, most importantly…my hot date.
13 miles with friends. (Instead of the scheduled 8 and 20, I ran 15 and 13. At least I got my miles in.)
My paperwhites are in full bloom and smell amazing!
USMC Bootcamp in downtown Nashville. It was so cold and the workout always kicks my butt! BUT…today I overcame my fear of the box jump!!!
Total Weekly Mileage: 84. It’s not the most I’ve ever run, but I think the cumulative effect of three marathons in a row has caught up with me. This next week starts my two week taper and I’m looking forward to fresh legs!
Now for some super fun, exciting news!! I was selected to run for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Team: Rock ‘n’ Blog!!!! I get to select which Rock ‘n’ Roll races I’d like to run in exchange for sharing the experience with you. Now the tough part…choosing my races! I’d LOVE your opinion!!
Which Rock ‘n’ Roll races have you run? Recommendations for me? I’ve run Nashville and San Diego.
Do you ever adjust your training plan or do you stick to it? Obviously, if you’re injured you make adjustments. I very rarely change mine.
Are you afraid of box jumps, too? I was so proud of myself for finally doing them!!!
What’s your highest weekly mileage ever? Mine was somewhere in the low 90’s.
