Miakonda Training week 11

Lots of heat, lots of rain and lots of schedule swaps this week, but I made it all work! Hard to believe I’m almost halfway done with this training cycle. I’m certainly dreading the heat this summer, but know I need to train in it for the race itself, and while I still feel a lot slower than where I was a year ago, I’m honestly not that far behind where I was, so hopefully I can work on the mental side of things a bit as we approach race day.

  • Monday: 10 miles. Headed down to the trail after work.
  • Tuesday: 8 miles. Tiny loops. Speedwork: Tempo – 18min/4R/12min
  • Wednesday: 10 miles. Back to the trail.
  • Thursday: 5 miles. Wasn’t sure I’d be able to get this run in, but the timing worked out just right!
  • Friday: Rest.
  • Saturday: Rest, at least in terms of running. Went up to camp to help out with Beaver Day. We got all the canvas up across the reservation, as well as a myriad of other tasks. I spent the morning getting the Camp Freedom office opened before jumping on a tent crew on the Ridge in the afternoon.
  • Sunday: 22 miles. The second half of this was super hot, with limited cloud cover. The day turned out to have a heat advisory as the day went on, so stupid heat training for me.
  • Long run fuel: Tailwind, Bobo’s Bar, Gu.
  • BWF/Core work: Beaver Day provided an ample workout.
  • Yoga: I didn’t have a chance to do a yoga class this week, hoping to get back to it!
  • Stretching: I did my stretching routine after almost every run, I missed one, but otherwise am still doing really well with this.
