Training Last Week:
Short Version: In summary last week, I recovered from the Philadelphia half and had a quality week of training.
|Monday:||Easy 75 minutes/Deep Tissue Massage|
|Tuesday:||Easy 75 minutes|
|Wednesday:||Easy 80 minutes|
|Thursday:||Medford Lakes Turkey Trot (18:30)|
|Friday:||Easy 75 minutes|
All of my easy runs were easy and I enjoyed Monday-Wednesday better than I enjoyed racing the Philadelphia half. I bounced back mentally and physically from the race. My friend, Montana, was back in town for Thanksgiving so I was able to run with her on Saturday.
Medford Lakes Turkey Trot (18:30):
I didn’t feel 100% during the race. My legs still had the Philadelphia half on them but they didn’t feel bad either. My mile splits were a consistent 5:56, 6:02, 6:00. My hopeful goal was to be under 19 but my dream goal was to run 18:35 (6 min pace). I’m happy I achieved that and it was a great race for me.
I didn’t know how the race would go. Last year, I ran an 18:48 and was ecstatic (also after running Philly). My hopeful goal was to be under 19 but my dream goal was to run 18:35 (6 min pace). I’m happy I achieved that and it was a great race for me. It’s actually my third fastest 5k ever (behind the Resolution Run 18:22 and the Flower Show 5k)
I’m happy with how the week went. With the exception of the Turkey Trot, it was a boring week.
