Weekly Running Update: April 15th, 2018

Hi Everyone!

I hope everyone is doing well! Anyone have any races going on?

Last week was the Allstate Hot Chocolate 15k Philadelphia (review here), this week was Newport Rhode Race half marathon!

My week in running:

Monday: 5 mi after work. Didn't go to the trail this past weekend, feeling like it's been a bit, decided to head over after work. Now that there's more daylight after work, I should be able to get a trail run in before dark. Assuming I leave work on time. Still feeling Saturday's run and tapering this week, goal was to have a relaxed pace, and ignore the voice to pick it up!
Tuesday: 1 mi. "Rest day". Still did some core strength training, crunches, planks, curls/tri extensions, butterflies. Lower area still feeling it, did not do leg raises or hip thrusts. Smooth mile around the neighborhood before work. Foam rolled later that night.
Wednesday: 4 mi. Work from home day, lunch run! Well, usually. Today I woke up at 4:30, tossed and turned, and decided to go for a run. Starting to feel better. Worked on breathing, felt like a decent pace without over exertion.
Thursday: rest day, one for the streak. To be honest, was lacking motivation. 
Friday: 2 mi. Smooth 2 miles before a Rhode trip!
Saturday: 13.1 miles. Race day! Rhode Race Newport half marathon! Yay! Sorry, only 1 pic from race day. Race day highlights to follow in a few days. Check the Race Reviews tab from the home page for all race day reviews!
Sunday: 1 mile. Rest day, one for the streak. Run streak day 813.
I recently used the below training program, this week was a variation of week 14.
To credit the images, it was pulled Coach Jenny Hadfield's training plans
Future races registered for:
  • 05/06/18 - Broad Street Run! This is definitely a fav! My 2017 review here. 
Good luck to everyone with training! Kick some butt!
