Total Miles: 34.97
Tuesday: 6.2 miles
Brokenhearted from yesterday’s events at the Boston Marathon, I ran 6.2 miles in honor of those who were unable to finish the race.
Wednesday: 7.37 miles
After another spring storm hits Colorado, I was running through ankle deep snow drifts, over long stretches of ice, all through heavy winds. I hadn’t bothered with my Yak Traks, but perhaps should have! The sun was trying to break through and the warmth was a welcome change. I am definitely over the cold and wind.
Thursday: 25 minutes/Dynamic Warmups; 5.4 miles
My colleague and I coached our school’s Bolder Boulder Run Club today. We were indoors due to the weather, so we set up stations for the kids. I led the Dynamic Warmups-high knees, butt kicks, karaoke, high skips, etc. When I got home, I ran 5.4 miles for a little shake-out.
Saturday: 6 miles
Spent the weekend in Breckenridge, CO with some friends. One of the girls and I went on a 6 mile run on the River Trail that runs from Breck to Frisco. The path was clear, despite all the snow in the mountains. Nice to run at 9,000 feet and not feel too winded! Couldn’t figure out why my upper calves were SO sore, until I remember that I had done dynamic warmups for half an hour on Thursday! Duh.
Sunday: 10 miles
Feeling tired today. 2 weeks until the 50k!
Hoping my body remembers all the work I’ve done prior to the taper. Taper plays with my head! I know I should be fine cutting back on mileage, but my head says otherwise!
