I cannot believe I am two weeks away from race day. This has been the smoothest training cycle — knock on wood — that I have ever had and I am feeling very strong and ready for the upcoming race. And, since it’s two weeks and not one week away, I’m not nervous yet!
This is what last week looked like:
Strength and core workouts, no running. But, I did take a photo of Joanna pretend-running!
4 solid miles. I honestly can’t remember where I ran or what the weather was like.
Rest day. (Again, I wouldn’t typically use Wednesday as a full rest day, but this is how it’s been while I take an evening class).
6 miles. This was an easy out-and-back on the Burke Gilman, that I remember.
Strength and core workouts, no running.
Last double-digit long run! Shannon and I did a 10-mile loop incorporating the Burke Gilman, Laurelhurst neighborhood, over the Montlake and University bridges and back on the Burke. This went a little faster than we meant to: 8:55 overall pace — whoops!
I was going to do a little shake-out run but my day got filled with apartment hunting — and finding one! — and meeting my cousin who road-tripped up from California for lunch and doing laundry and buying groceries for the week and going to the Sounders game. I walked some throughout the day so I’ll count that as “recovery.”
Here’s to two weeks of not-so-much running yet itching to run!
