Week #17, March 19-25
S Ran 2.04
S Ran 8.25
I had parent/teacher conferences on Tuesday. I didn’t have to be at school till 11 am but I still like to get there early. I did my run in the morning and then met my coworker for breakfast. Conferences went well. I have 24 students and 22 parents showed up so that is definitely a win!
I almost didn’t run on Wednesday. I was tired. I came and stayed in bed for a few minutes. I did feel a little better so I went out for my run. I am glad I did. It felt great being out there!
I had another great quality workout on Thursday (15 minute warm up, 8×2 minute @9:45 with 3 minute recovery, and 10 minute cool down). Runs like these intimidate me but also leave me leaving feeling much more confident about my training. I felt strong and the pace didn’t feel too hard.
Saturday morning I ran for 25 minutes before going to the Shamrock Shuffle 8K Expo. I wasn’t impressed with it. I was there for about 20 minutes and I bought two Sparkly Soul headbands. I almost bought a tiara headband but my friend told me I didn’t need it. 🙂
On Sunday I ran the Shamrock Shuffle 8K – my first race of the year! Total mileage for it was 8.25 miles. I did 19 minutes of warm up (I had to do 20 minutes but had to be at the corral entrance by 8:20 am). Then ran for 5.11 miles and then ran a 20 minute cool down. I was cold when I wasn’t running even with 3 layers. Today wasn’t a PR but I did better my time from last year by more than 6 minutes.
Total mileage for the week: 22.88
Total mileage for this training cycle: 352.81
Total mileage for the year: 273.98
