I’m two weeks away from the Hippie Chick Half Marathon. I’m still making sure I get my workouts in even if it means waking up at 4:30 in the morning. Here’s what I did last week:
- Monday – Started the morning with a nice strength workout, 22 Min Hard Corps Resistance 3, and then ran 2.01 miles on the treadmill.
- Tuesday – Worked out with hubby again and did 22 Min Hard Corps Cardio 2 and then ran 3.01 miles.
- Wednesday – Ran 8.01 miles while my 5 year old was in preschool.
- Thursday – Rest Day
- Friday – Ran 4.51 miles.
- Saturday – Ran 11.01 fast and early miles.
- Sunday – Rest day.
Total miles = 28.55 miles.
It was a good mileage week for me. I should be able to reach my goal of 100 miles for the month. Saturday’s fast run was faster than my previous long run which I’m happy about but I still need to work on my pacing. The My Asics app had me scheduled to run the 11 miles at 8:19 pace. I think the 8:21 average I got is pretty darn close enough. 😛 This is what my splits looked like:
Some exciting news came on Thursday, when I read the email that I got into the Chicago Marathon…woohoo! So awesome my sister got in too!!
This will be my second marathon and I hope it goes better than my first. Let’s just say I won’t be eating sushi close to the marathon.
In other news, we were still in cleaning/decluttering mode until the photographer came on Friday to take pictures. He sure made our house look nicer. We’ll be putting it on the market this weekend. I’m hoping our house sells fast and maybe there will be a bidding war, lol! I can only hope.
