First of all, thank you so much to everyone who replied to my Thoughts on Joining a NYCM Charity Team post. It was helpful to hear all your thoughts on it and I have to say for now I’m fairly certain the New York City Marathon won’t be on my calendar for this fall – and I’m 100% fine with that!
There are so many great races out there I’m sure I’ll have no problem finding one to do (…I’m actually pretty sure I know which one I’ll be doing!).
Monday – 1000m swim & 45 minutes elliptical
Tuesday – rest day
Wednesday – 75 minute yoga class & 3 mile run
Thursday – Swim: 250m freestyle warm up, 250m kicking, 250m arms only, 250m breast stroke, 250m freestyle
Friday – rest day
Saturday – 1 hour elliptical
Sunday – 5 mile run
Weekly Mileage – 8 miles
2014 Mileage – 163 miles
Not a strong running week at all. It amazes me how I can run a PR half marathon one weekend and the next my 5 mile run feels near impossible!
I had two good swims this week, but I really need to work on putting together a more focused swim workout rather than just get to the pool and just swim for as long as I feel like!
Next weekend I’ll be heading down to Washington DC for the Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run! Stop back tomorrow for a look at my plans for the weekend!
Which one are you going to do?!
Haha, I’ll probably post it in a few days when I’m sure, but it’s a smaller race that I’d actually excited to do, not one of the big ones : )
This reminds me that I need to get back in the pool! Can’t wait to hear which marathon you’re going to run!
I miss swimming!! I need to find a pool near me. Oooh, have fun in DC – it’s on my “life list” to make it to DC to see the Cherry Blossom Festival.
The only problem with planning to go see the Cherry Blossom Festival is that apparently the Cherry Blossoms aren’t always cooperative! Fingers crossed they’ll make an appearance this weekend!
I’ve been swimming a lot lately and really enjoy it…like you though, I need to figure out some workouts for the pool instead of plain ol’ lengths
Same, I’ve been trying to do a little research on some workouts, I’ll let you know if I find anything good.
I really need to take you up on that swimming offer…well, once I won’t traumatize people with the sight of me in a bathing suit lol
And you get on me for not tapering before a race, well the same thing with post race running missy! Especially after running a PR your legs are going to be a little off because they need to rest 🙂
Ha, I know what you mean. Some days a 3 mile run feels tough and I’m like, “I just did the Dopey and felt much better doing it.” What gives! Haha
