It was another very solid week of training. Over 38 miles total as well as 4 strength training days make for a good week. I’m not even sweating the 1.6 pound increase this week as I feel stronger and I am noticing a difference in how clothes are fitting. The number will start to drop again. I am confident of that!
Sunday, January 29 – It was supposed to be a rest day after a long 13 miler on Saturday. However, I woke up early and wanted to shake my legs out so I logged 3.3 easy miles at a 9:41 pace and cleared my head a little bit before church. I wrapped up the afternoon with 40 minutes of strength training followed by watching the WWE Royal Rumble!
Monday, January 30 – 5 miles in the neighborhood this morning and then some strength training after the kids left for school.
Thursday, February 2 – 5.2 miles at Mount Trashmore with the Running Turtles. Ran at a 9:23 pace.
Saturday, February 4 – 14.1 miles at a 9:52 pace. Like last week I did a :90/:30 run/walk ratio up until I hit the final mile. I ran from 13.0-14.1 with no breaks. It felt great to have enough gas in the tank to do that.
