Guys, the Zooma (Annapolis) Half Marathon is on Saturday! It’s crazy to believe that it’s already been a month since the New Jersey Marathon. I had a great week of running this week, but I’m still far from 100%. The back pain is still around intermittently, and I’m dealing with continuing calf/achilles tightness like I haven’t felt in a long time. Aside from that, I would say that the week went well!
Monday: Rest, 30 (day 8!)
Tuesday: 3 miles at Girls on the Run. I managed to run without intervals with a friend from work. (and 30 burpees)
Wednesday: 5 mile progression run. First two miles were 60:30, last three were 90:30. I felt very strong but was dead after! (30 more burpees!)
Thursday: Thursday turned into a rest day after I couldn’t get myself up in the morning, and really just didn’t feel like going out at night. But my 30 burpees got burped.
Friday: On Friday morning, I randomly decided to sign up for a 5K on Saturday morning. Before I registered, I did a 2 mile shake out and my 30 burpees. I threw in a couple of fast intervals and felt good, albeit tight.
Saturday: 3.1 miles at a local 5K. It was very hilly, but fun. I definitely went out too fast but I was able to hang on and run an alright time for me. I got home and did my 30 burpees, and took a super long couch nap.
Sunday: 8 miles for my only pre-Zooma “long run”. I really wanted to go longer, but realized it would be silly of me to push to hard and make my tightness and back pain worse. This was the one day I didn’t do my burpees, which I felt bad about, but it really isn’t the end of the world.
Weekly miles: 21.1.
I’m happy to finally be back up into the 20’s and hoping that I can work out some of this leg soreness this week. I’m going into Zooma just wanting to have fun! I know it’s not a PR course, so I’m just hoping to enjoy it and finish in one piece.
Do you have any races in the next couple of weeks?
