March 2017 + NJ Marathon Training week 14

Happy April, everyone! I’m so happy that spring has sprung! The flowers are blooming and I’m finally starting to feel more like myself again. I haven’t done this in a while, but let’s look back at the last month of running, because it was a good one!

March 2017

Highlights: A new 5K PR, growing confidence

Low-lights: An 18-miler turned 6

Races: Rock N Roll DC, Shamrock 5K,  Baltimore Road Runner’s Club St. Patrick’s Day 5k

Miles run: 125.1


This past week was a bit of a step back week. I had a half marathon scheduled as a long run, and did a couple of shorter runs. All in all it was a great week and I’m ready to head into my “peak week” of training for the New Jersey Marathon!

Monday: Rest day

Tuesday: 4.75 miles total – 1 at Girls on the Run, 3.75 Easy-Moderate effort at home. My left foot and ankle were bothering me a bit, but I survived. Also bodyweight exercises while watching tv.

Wednesday: 5.95 miles, half on my own, half with Jake. I ran without scheduled intervals and felt good until when I tripped and fell!

Thursday: 3 miles super easy to recover from the last couple days of harder (for me) runs. I contemplated a rest day, but I really wanted to reach 125 for the month!

Friday: Rest day!

Saturday: 13.1 miles at the Oldfield’s Half Marathon – recap coming up soon!
