5K/10K Training Tuesday: Week Ten
Monday: 2.5 mile run
Sunday: 2.5 mile run + 1 mile walk
So, it turns out that almost all of the Cleveland Marathon Ambassadors -- including myself -- are struggling lately. Several of us have moved or are working on home projects, plus babies happening, and all sorts of stuff that is making it difficult to find the time to keep up with our training and when we do have that free time, all we really want to do is decompress.
Wednesday was once again my day for speedwork. Because of the weather I opted to run laps in our work warehouse (which is where all of the exercise classes and free weights, kettlebells, are held).
Because I was indoors, the GPS on my Garmin couldn't connect to the satellites so I had to rely on the built in accelerometer so I'm not entirely sure how accurate the mileage is.
I was all set to use the weekend for my long run and then it snowed.
Saturday was all snowy, all the time. So instead of even trying to brave that, I spent the day working on my book in my brand new office!
I love having my medals right there next to my desk. They are a nice reminder when I'm writing and can just glance over and see them.
Because I spent Saturday indoors, I knew I had to at least try to go out for a run on Sunday. In fact, when BC and I went out for brunch I made sure to go to the restaurant dressed for a run so I had no excuses when we got back. He was working on Sunday, so he dropped me off and I grabbed my keys and gear and off I went.
I was supposed to do 4 miles but oof, Running in snow. I had forgotten how much I hate running in snow. It slows me down and I had to watch out for ice. Plus, it turns my neighborhood is a bit more hilly than I realized so that slowed me down, too. After 2.5 miles I turned off my Garmin and walked the mile or so home. So while I didn't maybe get 4 miles of running, I at least got close to 4 miles regardless.
This week I have a business trip so I have to figure out when to get all my runs in this week, too!
This week, Cleveland Marathon Ambassador Joe is hosting a giveaway for a free race entry!
Love from the ashes,
