I fly back to Alaska today. I’m bummed that I am leaving behind family, friends, and nice weather, but I am also anxious to see Craig. I miss his silly antics.
I have been having too much fun in Minnesota that I completely forgot to recap my mileage from the 28th week of my pregnancy. I wanted to keep an thorough account of my mileage and workouts during this pregnancy so I can go back during an successive pregnancies and so others can compare/contrast their experiences.
Weekly mileage from July 28 – August 3
Off – I usually feel I am good for 3 or 4 days of running in a row, but then I need a break.
4.5 miles/38:45/average pace – 8:32 + 30 minutes weights at the gym
Did a tempo run for 10 minutes at a 7:45 – 8:00 pace, jogged for a few minutes, and then another tempo run for 5 minutes.
6 miles/53:17/average pace – 8:44 + 60 minute yoga class
Run with Joanne in Eagle River. Beautiful morning run. It reminded me how much I love running in the morning. Having someone else keeps me preoccupied.
3.5 miles/31:31/ average pace – 9:01
I did a ladder workout on the track.
200 – :46
400 – 1:34
800 – 3:20
800 – 3:18
400 – 1:33
200 – :42
I was pretty satisfied with how this workout went. I have definitely cut back on the length of my track intervals.
Off – traveling to Minnesota
7 miles/59:17/ average pace – 8:28
My sister and I did this run together. She definitely pushed me, which was good. I did okay with the pace, but it is definitely getting more difficult. Excluding the first two miles, our splits were 8:05 – 8:20 for miles 3-7, which is really good for me these days.
How many days of running in a row before you feel like you need a break?
How often do you run with others?
