7 miles @ 8:05 average to finish off a 65 mile week with a lot of hills thrown in there too. These legs of mine are more than happy to take today off. Then we have one more hard week before a big recovery week!
The kids woke up and then we were off to our new Saturday tradition… donuts. I need to celebrate finishing each week of this ultra training with a circle of delicious carbohydrates.
Skye had her first donut hole and she thoroughly enjoyed it.
The kids had sprinkles and I copied Andrew and grabbed a glazed one. He has taught me that the simplest donut is currently the best donut.
It was warm enough (our definition of warm enough is probably strange to others…) to go to the park for 20 minutes too. We came home and had some lunch and played games and then I met up with my mom and sister to go to see The Upside. For my sister’s bday I planned a little getaway for us (<— I guess this is a present for me too;) We had a blast.
We loved The Upside… I’m going to go see it with Andrew too because it was that good.
Then we drove up to Salt Lake City and ate at one of our favorites—> Spitz. We sat there for a long time talking.
And then we walked around for awhile
Finished off with a lot of HGTV and sleeping. Hallelujah.
Andrew and the kids had a good time at home and…
Andrew told me that Brooke carried around a little picture of the two of us ha:)
Another week of training is done and done! I had my highest weekly mileage in a long time too so that was exciting for me. All of my runs were outside besides my speed work on Monday which is great for January in Utah:)
Monday: 20 minute warm-up, 6 x 5 minutes at a steady/strong pace (around a 6:30-40 for me) w/1 minute rests after each one and cool-down until I hit 10 miles. 1-1.5% incline the entire time. 7:03 average pace (without 1 minute recoveries and 7:33 average if you put in the 1 minute recoveries:)
Tuesday: 8 miles @ 8:39 average pace.
Wednesday: 21 MILES @ 8:34 average pace. 1,050 up. Zero trails but I wore my trail shoes to get my feet more and more used to spending a lot of time in them.
Thursday: 12 miles @ 8:45 average. 1,017 up. On the streets again but I found some good hills!
Friday: 7 miles @ 8:40 average on the treadmill.
Saturday: 7 miles @ 8:05 average.
65 miles for the week and I’m soaking in this day off!
What was your best run last week?
