I was still in Vegas for the first half of the week, arriving back on the island on Wednesday and was able to make the group run. This week marked the start of getting back into workouts, for the last month I have just been doing easy running.
Tuesday: 20′ easy, Sky and I ran up the strip towards the north end, we only had to go up and down one over-pass, so that’s a win. I actually enjoy the challenge of running the strip because of all the stairs to avoid crossing the street, but our legs were pretty sore that day.
Wednesday: My first post-marathon work-out! 20′ easy, 15′ hills, 20′ easy. We were given an amount of time and then ran up and down a hill to different points for the duration.
Thursday: OFF. I did an upper-body workout.
Friday: 45′ easy, ran down to the ocean after work.
Saturday: Group WO, 20′ easy, 4 x 1 mile (7:06, 7:18 ,7:26, 7:23), 20′ easy. I also did core work.
Sunday: Long-run, met up with my friend Binder and ran for 90′, we did a mix of trail and road. I also did an upper-body workout.
Total Weekly Mileage: 55.2 km
I have started to plan out my 2018 race calendar and so far I am thinking of:
January: Pioneer 8km
February: First-Half (registered)
March: Bazan Bay 5km
April: Boston Marathon (registered)
October: Chicago Marathon (registered)
There will definitely be more races added in, hoping to do Seawheeze again for example, but registration details are not yet released!
