Sitting down to write this, it feels like forever since I’ve done a weekly workouts recap. It has been a few weeks, and that’s because I came down with a bad cold the last day of our trip to Maine and took about a week off, just getting back into it this past week. My mileage is slowly climbing upward, and I am looking forward to beginning marathon training in June. Let’s get to the weekly workouts, and I’ll share a few scenes from the weekend as well!
Monday: Rest day
Tuesday: 5.4 miles
Wednesday: Rest day
Thursday: 5.4 miles
Friday: Rest day
Saturday: 9 miles
Sunday: 8.4 miles
Keeping in mind that I have pretty active rest days because I walk to and from work, and around the office during the workday, I was pretty happy with a 28.2 mile week. I wanted to get close to 30 miles/week this month, and there’s a very low chance I’ll be doing that since we’re coming up on June, but I think given my time off due to illness it’s all going to happen in good time. I got the two long runs in on the boardwalk at my boyfriend’s house on the beach this weekend, unexpected back-to-back jaunts. I have my initial consultation with Laura this week about marathon training so that’s the biggest thing on my mind where running is concerned.
The week was pretty low key other than running. I’m happy the weather is looking up – supposed to be 80s and sunny soon – but there was a lot of rain this week. I did some cooking experimentation, trying my hand at making potato crusted cod. I think I need a mandolin to slice the potatoes thinner, but the general concept is a good one.
In other cooking adventures, I made my baked sweet potato fries for dinner on Saturday night and they were a hit. I’m planning to try and cook more at home over the summer to take advantage of when we’re out of the city and have regular kitchens to work with, and to experiment with some summery recipes, so look out for those. And with that, I’ll see you Wednesday!
Does your running routine get sidetracked by the sniffles?
Does your weekly mileage remain consistent or go up and down?
Is the late spring-into-summer weather emerging where you live?
