weekly recap: 9/7-9/14

This wasn’t an earth-shattering week. Well, except for that 10 miler on Friday. That was pretty epic.

I’ve been pretty busy with carpooling and volunteering and it’s been challenging getting into my back-to-school groove. I think I’ve got it, though.

Sunday: rest

Monday: 3.22 miles; biceps, triceps, inner thighs

Tuesday: biceps, triceps, inner thighs

Wednesday: 2.58 mile run; biceps, triceps, inner thighs – I overslept and had to be home by 7:00 AM. This is as much as I could get in.

Thursday: I was feeling a bit lazy. Let’s call this a rest day.

Friday: 10.10 mile run. Holy moly, spicy guacamole! I did it!

Saturday: I had every intention of doing 3-4 miles today, but my knees were still a little sore. I decided to give myself a break, and stick to biceps, triceps and inner thighs.

This week, I plan to continue in a similar vein, and my goal is to hit 10.5-11 miles on my next long run. And then I think it will be time to start tapering in advance of the big day.

My countdowns are as follows:

19 days til Tower of Terror 10-Miler.

77 days til Space Coast Half Marathon.

125 days til ZOOMA Florida Half Marathon.

I have a Color Me Rad 5K in there, and I am looking at a local 10K in November to help fill in the holes.

Any advice for me for the next 19 days? 

How does your race schedule look through the end of 2013?

      Thank you! I hope it’s a great race. I have heard so many mixed reviews, and I don’t want it to be dull or to be mad that I didn’t do a different event. I am planning on one runDisney race a year. They are super pricey and fortunately, I live in an area that offers tons of incredible races, so I hope I can stick to that plan. Or close to it. I started planning out races through 2015 and Mr PugRunner looked at me like I was insane. LOL!
