The last week of training went by with nothing of note. As most people know, I work in a run specialty store. While it’s not as crazy as a department store, we still are extremely busy during the holidays.
Most of my week was centered around work (how thrilling), but I was able to get runs in too.
|Monday:||60 minutes easy|
|Wednesday:||50 minutes easy/ART from Dr. Kemenosh|
|Thursday:||65 minutes easy|
|Friday:||65 minutes easy|
|Sunday:||warmup+40 minute tempo run+cooldown|
Total: 50 miles
Easy runs were just that and uneventful. I have nothing of note with those.
Tuesdays workout: 6X800s (ranging in pace between 6:02-6:07 per mile)
The goal was to be closer to the 3 min mark (6 mins per mile), however, due to running on the road versus the track, my times were a little slower. I prefer to do my speed work on roads because it’s easier to get space on the road and I race on the road.
Sunday: 40 min Tempo Run (average 6:44)
My workout was supposed to be on Christmas Eve, however, due to my schedule that didn’t work out. Oddly enough, I had plenty of time the morning of Christmas and was able to get my tempo run done before 9.
The workout itself went well. The goal was 6:43 pace and my average was 6:44.
I have no complaints with my training week. It was a boring week of training but many weeks are like that.
Next week I’m hoping to find a New Years 5k but there aren’t many close by. I haven’t raced since the Dallas half marathon and I’m itching for a race.

Questions for you:
How was your Holiday week?
Do you have any New Years plans?
Nice week! Yeah, sometimes the workouts can be boring, but getting them done is a huge accomplishment. Nice job!
I’ve thought about doing a midnight run in Central Park for NYE–I even registered one year–but I’ve never actually made it there, lol. I really like to keep the evening low-key and make workout plans with friends for NYD. We’re already planning to do a “resolution ride” (indoors, of course) on the 1st.
Great work…love your blog 🙂
Awe thank you for stopping by 🙂
Happy Holidays & all the best for 2017!
Thank you and you too Dina!
We have a new year’s 5K here that I will probably run. No races last weekend for me (Only one race I think in the whole state, and I wasn’t close to it). So, I’m kinda itching to run a race too. Looks like you had a great week and got the workouts in despite being busy at work.
I think a midnight NYE race would be so much fun, but so far, there is nothing like that in my area!
You could come run the one in Westfield with me! I need someone to chase… or if you have any pacer friends who could run me to a sub-20, that would be amazing. 🙂
I hope you’re able to find a 5k to do (and I also hope you get to relax after the holidays! I know retail can be crazy this time of year!)
