I Have a Handful Now and a Weekly Recap!!

I Have a Handful Now!

I am so excited that I won an awesome giveaway from Jennifer over at Running with the Girls.  I won a Handful Bra and I am so excited!  I requested it in pink and I can't wait to receive it and try it out! Unfortunately that is not me in the picture!  Maybe if I use that handful bra enough I might come close to having that kind of body! Wishful thinking...

Week Four Training Recap: I had another  productive week and I am really pushing myself to stay disciplined about my training.  I hit all of my target paces/times and I did much better on my long run.  Sticking to my long run pace kind of happened on it's own because I was just tired and I had done a speed workout the day before.  I normally take a day off after a speed workout but my schedule was really busy last week and I had no choice but to follow it with a long run.


Monday: REST DAY

Tuesday: XT#1: 1 hour Spin Class.  The instructor was a substitute and the workout was not as challenging. There were a lot of first-timers in the class so I think he didn't want to scare them off.

Wednesday: Speed Workout: 6.8 miles.  I hit all of my target times but my watch died so I cut my cool down short.  Speed work is still challenging me and my behind always seems to hurt the next day. 

Thursday: 20 miles: I got a late start because I was tired and really wanted to put this run off until the next day but due to the chance of rain, I had to do it. I thought about turning back so many times but I knew that I had to keep going!


Saturday: XT#2: 45 minutes on Life Cycle (16.16 miles)

Sunday: Mission Inn Run 10K which I substitued for my 6 mile tempo run.

Total Mileage= 49.16 (33 of those miles were running)

I am super close to meeting my goal of running 1000 miles for the year.  I am currently at 997.76! I love meeting my Running Goals but that also means that I have to raise the bar and continue to challenge myself. I was planning on making today a cross training day but now I am tempted to go for a 2.24 run to hit that 1000 mile mark today!

This week will be just a tiny bit easier than last week since I have an 18 miler on the schedule!  Have a great week and congratulations to everyone who raced this weekend!
