Training Tuesday: Finally Feeling Normal Again

It took a long time, but I finally feel like I found my running groove again. I'm not sure if it's because I found a time I enjoy running or because I'm back at my old long run location, but I feel like I found my happy running place again. 

This past week didn't go exactly as planned, but I'm ok with that. Work has gotten even crazier than last week. As I mentioned before, the position above me got eliminated and I'm picking up most of the duties. Wednesday was a 10 hr work day and Thursday was only worse- I left for work at 7:30am and didn't get home until 7pm. I'm hoping it settles down this week or I may lose a lot of my weekday runs. :/ 

Previous Week
Tuesday: 4.09 mile run in honor of Boston- ran my 2nd best 5k (31:31) 
Wednesday: cross training (yoga) missed the yoga
Thursday: 2 mile run missed the run
Friday: 5k run ran 2.5 miles
Saturday: rest
Sunday: 5 mile run- ran my 3rd best 5k (31:49)
Monday: rest

While I missed my cross training and a run, my times are still improving! I was going to try and stretch my long run on Sunday to 6.2 miles/10k, but it was pretty warm and I ran out of water. At the moment, I'm working on beating my 5k PR (30:15). This week in my Dumbo training I'm running my first back to back run on Saturday/Sunday. 

This Week / T- 18 weeks until Dumbo
Tuesday: 5k run (aiming for a PR for my birthday)
Wednesday: cross training (yoga)
Thursday: 2 mile run
Friday: rest
Saturday: 2 mile run
Sunday: 6 mile run 
Monday: rest


  1. Oh my goodness, 10 hour work days?! That is rough!

    Looks like you still had a great training week though! Good luck on the 5k PR for your birthday :)

  2. I'm hoping that work will calm down soon.
    I asked my hubby to pace me and I actually ran my 5k PR! :)

  3. I hope your work calms down but it looks like you had a great week, regardless!

  4. Thanks, Karen! How has your week been?
