Monday: Swapped Monday's usual rest day with Sunday this week. While I am not specifically focusing on a particular pace for my 50k training, I am hoping to keep some of the shorter runs at a little bit of a faster pace and the longer ones at an easy pace.
Actual: 3.5 miles (9:06/mile)
Tuesday: A nice 5k for Cinco de Mayo after work followed by making spinach pasta salad for my mom for Mother's Day. It's the little things sometimes.
Actual: 3.1 miles (9:21/mile)
Pasta making is a key part of training, or at least carbo loading.Wednesday: We travelled back to South Carolina to spend Mother's Day weekend with my family. We weren't able to spend the whole week, so we settled for two long weekends instead. It's so relaxing, I didn't even think twice about it.
It was worth making the drive 2 weekends in a row.Thursday: Snuck in a few miles before tropical storm Ana dumped some rain on us. We were lucky in that the rain really only lasted one afternoon. It remained windy throughout the weekend, but that is just some bonus resistance training.
Actual: 3.1 miles (9:20/mile)
Where to put my chair....Friday: We rested and it was just what we needed. Turns out, I hadn't taken any time off work since last June (Whoops!) except 1 day for each of my last two marathons. It was well overdue. (Note to self: remember to use vacation days).
Actual: 8.5 miles (10:57/mile)
Actual: 5 miles (8:55/mile)
And just like that, our mini break was over.
How was your week? Do you enjoy running with people who run a different pace?
