10 Mile Training – Week 8

It was a busy week! Lots of stuff going on and I was getting ready to go out of town. Goldy’s 10 mile is now less than 2 weeks away, and I’m feeling pretty good about it. Pain in the foot/ankle has stayed away which I’m also really psyched about! Unfortunately, my streak of getting in 2 strength training days each week was broken last week, but I’m going to work hard to get in both this week. Here’s what last week’s training looked like.

Monday – Rest day

I had to do something for work in the evening, so Monday turned in to a rest day.

Tuesday – 5 miles

Got in a nice 5 mile run on the treadmill. Average pace o 10:25.

Wednesday – Rest day

Yea, another one for this week. It happens. Had my manicure appointment and a couple other errands to run.


Thursday – 3.05 miles

Got home from work and got in a nice, quick run before heading off to book club!

Friday – Cross training 25 minutes on the elliptical, 20 minutes walking on the treadmill

Perfect night for some cross training before waking up early to head to Chicago!

Saturday – Walking around Chicago

More to come on the runcation, but we did a TON of walking on Saturday. We walked from our hotel to brunch, then to the race expo at Navy Pier and back. For the full day, we walked about 20,000 steps!

Sunday – Shamrock Shuffle 8K and more walking

Again, race recap will be coming, but the ~5 mile run went really well! And of course there was more walking around the city. Luckily, it was a pretty nice day.

Goldy’s will be here before I know it! I’m hoping for some decent weather next weekend so I can get in my last long run outside.
