Another whirlwind week!
Monday: 5.5 miles while I got my oil changed with 4 laps of striders on the track at UNC-Asheville. Super hot!
Tuesday: 7 miles with 3 by 5 minutes at tempo effort.
Wednesday: 5 miles of recovery running on the Mountains to Sea trail.
Thursday: 6 miles easy, my last morning in Asheville.
Friday: Travel Day. Winchester, Virginia to Roxbury, VT to meet my girls at training camp! Unfortunate feature was getting rear-ended about an hour from camp.
Saturday am: Easy warmup then 5 by 3 minutes at tempo effort (XC girls).
Saturday pm: 3.5 mile recovery run. Beach abs after.
Sunday am: Easy warmup then 5 by Windridge hill hard. Legs after.
Sunday pm: Hour plus of yoga; tons of hip and back work. Much needed.
Total Miles: 37
I’m back in Vermont! I spent the weekend with my girls at training camp and loved every second. As mentioned above, I did unfortunately get rear-ended while traveling on Friday, which was my first accident in over a decade. I was stopped in traffic and she didn’t see that we were stopped and hit me at a pretty good clip. Thankfully, I had Will’s Honda and although it needs some repairs, no one was injured and besides some sore muscles and a sore wrist, I was totally unscathed.
I’m excited to get back into a groove this week and start following my 9 day schedule on Wednesday. Since I’ve been at 35 to 37 miles for the last 3 weeks, I’ll adjust down to 45 miles for this first week back, rather than pushing for 50.
