Weekly recap

Monday - rest! 
It does a body good?

Tuesday - arms/core
According to Daily Mile, this was 50 minutes of "alright" feelings. I don't remember what I did, so I'm assuming I didn't love it, or hate it.

Wednesday - run/XT
4 easy treadmill miles, plus 10 minute abs (this video) and 35 min legs (this video). I like both of these!

Thursday - run
My legs were D E A D after the video, so I just did an easy shakeout run through the slums of Irvine.

Thursday night was also Dual Meet night for #1 - her team won, making them 2-0 in the league. 

Friday - arms
40 minutes of another mystery video! Honestly, I spent the majority of the day insanely jealous of everyone running Ragnar SoCal - there was a new course this year THAT RAN RIGHT BY MY NEIGHBORHOOD, and it skipped all the stupid inland stuff to run right along the ocean, AND the weather was fantastic. So jealous. 

Friday night, #1 raced at Trabuco Hills Distance Carnival (which, BTW, was also right on the Ragnar course - I didn't run Ragnar this year because I knew she was racing, so way to really rub some salt on that wound, RAGNAR). 

what even, that calf. 
17th place finish out of 137, and another sub-5:30 finish - she was pretty sad she didn't PR, but not every race is gonna be a PR, kid. 

Saturday - rest! 
First Saturday "off" in a billion years, so we slept in, got donuts, and did nothing.

Sunday - "long" run
6 miles, never felt good, but it was FINE. It's been a long time since I've bothered to really struggle through a run - since I haven't been training, I got into the habit of just stopping when it didn't feel fun any more. If I want to run a half marathon in 7 weeks, I guess I need to stop doing that. I GUESS. 


Monday - XT (I'll recap this next week, but I almost died dead finishing a Fitness Blender 90 minute video).
Tuesday - run! 4 miles easy
Wednesday - run!! 4 miles WITH SPEED WORK dun dun dun. And arms/core.
Thursday - rest/easy xt (#1 is racing)
Friday - Long, 8 miles
Saturday - rest
Sunday - XT, easy 3-4 miles if I feel like it?

Basically, I'm hoping for around 16-20ish miles this week, and while I say I'm introducing speed work, I'm really just going to shoot for a couple of miles at "goal" pace (which is vague, so this isn't really speed work at all, it's more like, run a little faster and see what happens pace). 


  1. Shoot I can't do any of those races - but thanks for sharing! :)

  2. I want to got to CA and do all those races! But I can do none of them.

  3. So, which one is your next race? Or are you doing all of them?
    #1 is so fast.

  4. shame on the ragnar for prancing by you....BUT, you are quite the amazing track mom. seriously, you are at every meet. It's impressive. And yes, push through the sucky runs. :)


Comments rock.
