The miles are ramping up and the Dopey Challenge is getting closer!Read More
I'm super excited because I have so many races on the horizon.
1. Disneyland Half Weekend - Dumbo Double Dare
2. North Face Endurace Challenge 50k in Utah
3. Hot Chocolate 15k in Denver
With that in mind I decided to track my progress (and share it with all of you). I'm training for my first 50k so most of my training plan will revolve around that moment. So let's dig into how this week went...
Feeling going into the week: Exhausted and sore. We moved into a new apartment so that meant after a 14 mile trail run I packed, lifted, and unpacked my life. Saturday was trail run and then moving for the next 12 hours, when Sunday rolled around we had to move the rest of our stuff and a run was not in my future.
|Where were you last week alpaca???|
Since I was sore from the previous weekend, I dialed back my weekday runs accordingly.
Tuesday: 5 miles
Wednesday: 5 miles
Thursday 6 miles
Friday: Rest Day
Saturday: 15 trail miles (3.3k of climbing) and it was a slow and hot run!
Sunday: 9.2 evening miles
Week total: 40.2 miles
This isn't quite the 47 miles I had planned to complete but it's the first week above 40 in a while so I'll take that. I was suppose to do a 10 miler during the week and my Saturday 15 miler should have been a 20 miler but I cut it short because it was hot hot HOT!
Next week is an easier week so I should be able to hit my 40 miles easy peasy and then continue to ratch up the weekly mileage!
