Miakonda Training week 8

Some more shuffling around of days this week, and it was a down week, which was a nice bit of . Went to Cleveland to make pierogies with friends, which was a ton of fun, and even though we were all vaccinated, we moved it outside which gave us a lot more room and was a really good setup!

  • Monday: Rest.
  • Tuesday: 5 miles. Tiny loops.
  • Wednesday: 8 miles. More tiny loops
  • Thursday: 7 miles. Tempo workout: 14 minutes/4 minutes recovery/12 minutes 5K pace.
  • Friday: 5 miles before an early night and wake up call to drive to Cleveland the next morning.
  • Saturday: Rest, pierogie day!
  • Sunday: 14 miles. Was a nice run, and then a day filled with errands, but I kind of knew that going in. There was drama on the trail’s Facebook page as someone was complaining that the trail doesn’t allow horses (even after we’re all now pretty sure she was the one riding her horses on the trail). She also, decided that the trial was ‘elitist’ for not allowing horses. Never in my life would I have had ‘horse owner calls runners and dog walkers elitist’ on my bingo card, but here we are. Pictures below, because, come on, this is just too wild!
  • Long run fuel: Tailwind, Bobo’s Bar.
  • BWF/Core work: Another Zombies, Run: The Home Front workout, this one was mission 10, the last of their first batch, it’s interesting hear this little bit of a time capsule.
  • Yoga: Did a really great class of Friendly Yin Yoga, this one was focused on hips, so I’ll for sure be coming back to do this one again!
  • Stretching: I did my stretching routine after every run!
