Last Week’s Workouts: Progression run + Back Squat PR + Golf

Last week’s workouts included a 35 mile week, a back squat PR at CrossFit, and some time at the driving range for an active recovery day. I still don’t know if I’ll run my race after all my travel or not, but I’m going to keep training as if I will since I’m enjoying the plan!

Last Week’s Workouts

M – 10 mile progression run, first 5 with Ali, finished solo. I averaged an 8:20 pace and ran the last 20 minutes at 7:00-7:10 min/mile pace

T – 4.3 mile run with Kate, 8:30 pace (my legs were super tired this day – I struggled) + Pure Barre. This was the first time I’d been to Pure Barre in months! It was a great ab workout, per usual.

W – CrossFit

  • Back Squats: 4×8 @ 125#. This was challenging but I think I could have gone heavier, which made me really excited!
  • 11 min. AMRAP with double unders, kettle bell swings, and pull-ups. Exact workout here!

Th – 7.5 miles, 8:22 pace. I was supposed to do a tempo run, but there was no way that was happening after back squats the night before. I rarely run the morning after Crossfit since my legs are toast, but I tried anyway. Oops.

F – REST

Sa – 13.2 miles, average 7:48 pace. This run felt amazing! It was a Long Run Fast Finish, where the first half was run at an easy pace (around 8:30) and then I did 4 miles at my goal half marathon pace (7:10) and finished the last few miles as fast as I could (I ran around 6:50 min/miles).

I felt amazing on my long run, especially considering I rolled my ankle after 7 miles in when I slipped on an acorn (graceful lady here). I stopped and shook it out for a few minutes and walked until I was sure it was okay. Somehow I was able to run without any pain and it’s totally fine 2 days later. I credit CrossFit for my sturdy joints!

Su – REST. Tommy and I went to the driving range again; I’m loving this for my rest days! It’s nice to still be active and to get to spend time with him. The sunset is always gorgeous out there too.

How I feel

I feel like I have tired legs a lot on my easy days and that it takes me a lot of time to warm up on any run. But I think that’s okay since on my “quality works” I’m able to hit my goal paces – most of the time anyway! Running on tired legs teaches your body to push through. But, I definitely pay attention to my body and somedays, I just have to call it in and run easy instead of doing the prescribed workout.
