Monday Runday: Week 4

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. As I mentioned in Saturday’s post, this was the last weekend before next weekend’s half marathon, so this will be the last edition of Monday Runday (at least until my mom and I find our next race!). So let’s hop right into it!

Monday – took a rest day. I was a little tired from pushing the pace on Sunday’s 11-miler, so I just did a Fitnessblender upper-body workout and let my legs recover.

Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday – worked, so no runs.

Friday – I went to the barbell strength class with my mom in the morning and then ran 3 miles on the treadmill after. The class changes the routine and music every few weeks to keep you guessing, and I’m really liking the new routine! That might just be the fact that I’m getting a little stronger and not feeling as sore after this class anymore though. 🙂 I did the 3 miles as a progression run, working my way down to an 8:30/mile pace, and then slowing back down towards the end as a cool-down.

Saturday – LAST LONG RUN!!! My mom and I went out and ran 9 miles together. We took it at a comfortable pace, and it felt great.

Sunday – We volunteered at our running club’s local 5k and 10k race! My mom and I were in charge of starting and setting up clocks at the 3 and 4 mile markers along the 10k course, something we’d both never done before. We were both a little nervous that we were going to mess this up and that runners would be coming by saying to themselves, “That can’t be right! What’s wrong with those clocks?!” Luckily, that didn’t happen, and we got to cheer on all the runners.

So this week, I’ll be doing a couple short runs and focusing on carboloading (yay!). Can’t wait for Sunday!!

What’s your running schedule look like this week? How was your weekend?

    I’ve never set up clocks before! Sounds like a fun (albeit nerve-wracking!) job! I’m glad it went well 😀
    Good luck this weekend coming up! I know you’ll do great!!
