Goldy’s 10 mile training – weeks 8-10

Okay, I failed miserably at posting about my training the last few weeks. Even though the race has come and gone, I thought I’d give a quick and dirty update until I get my race recap up.

Week 8

Monday – 3 mile run (10:20/mile pace)

Tuesday – rest day

Wednesday – 45 minute elliptical

Thursday – rest day

Friday – 3.51 mile run (10/mile pace)

Saturday – 6.52 mile run (10:04/mile pace)

I got the day started with coffee and a bagel – the best way to start the day!

I ended the day at the movies and saw Birdman. I hadn’t heard of the movie until award season. I actually really liked it!


Sunday – 1.33 mile walk and 35 minute elliptical


Week 9

Monday – 4.03 mile run (10:01/mile pace)

Tuesday & Wednesday – rest days

Not a bad thing that Wednesday was a rest day because a thunderstorm rolled through. I’m not complaining though, because I love storms! It was the first of the season, so of course I opened the blinds and watched the lightning for awhile.

Thursday – 4.01 mile run (10:12/mile pace)

Friday – 2 mile run, 10 min walk

I took my new running shoes out for a test drive!

Saturday – 9.03 miles (10:05/mile pace)

A lovely long run on a gorgeous day to get ready for Goldy’s!

Sunday – rest day


Week 10

Monday – 30 minute elliptical

This was a big day, not for running but for my other love: Duke basketball. Duke was playing the Wisconsin Badgers in the National Championship game. I’m originally from Wisconsin, but my allegiance will always be with Duke. And on this night, that worked in my favor. DUKE WON!


Jumping around my living room at the end of the game could be considered my second workout of the day. 😉

Tuesday – rest day

Wednesday – 2.19 mile walk

Thursday – 3 mile run (10:20/mile pace)

It was a treadmill day. Man, I forgot how slow time goes by when running inside! So glad the weather is getting nicer and nicer for several months of outdoor running.


Friday – rest day

Saturday – RACE DAY!

What movies have you seen recently that are good? Anyone else get new running shoes in time for spring/summer running?
