Oh last week was tons of fun as expected! I love this time of year in that I feel more relaxed with my training and take the time to cut loose with friends and get a little silly from time to time!
I have been totally slacking swimming and biking!!! Coach just sent out our first set of off-season bike workouts so I am starting those this week! Also as of 11/1, you could purchase your USMS 2012 membership so I did that this week too. So time to get back into the swing of things after a pretty lax September and October for two reasons.
1. I need to get myself back in biking shape as I help lead indoor trainer sessions starting in December and ideally I like to make sure I am well-prepared.
2. Improving my swimming is my numero uno winter goal!
So on the training front, I continue to just run, run, run lately!
Tuesday was the normal 10 mile day which included a track workout of 6x800's, some drills and then 4x100's. Felt strong!
Wednesday was a 2.5 mi super easy fun run for CTC's Halloween Costume Fun Run! Always a good time!
Thankfully as the designated driver Wednesday night, I was able to make it up for my Thursday morning tempo run which was 8 miles and 3mi@6:46.
Friday-? Not sure what I got in that day. Maybe it was an off day or maybe I ran easy??
Saturday was our girls Halloween / Pancake Run!!! I had conned CV into meeting me out early for some miles before the group run. We managed 7 mi at 7:03 before running 6 more easy on the trails for a total of 13. I earned my breakfast that morning while having a super fab time with some of my favorite ladies!
Saturday evening was our Halloween Party. Of course I had to go with my LMFAO themed outfit and showed my guests the "I'm Sexy and I know it!" ridiculous video a time or 6! Heehee! Another fun evening and late night which led to a very lazy Sunday!
So a super fun week in the books! This week's workouts are a bit lighter as I taper for Sunday's half marathon race, the Inland Trail half! Overall aerobically I feel pretty good and pretty confident. My leg (tibial nerve area) habitually gives me pause so erroring on the easier side this week. Bring on the gorgeous looking weekend forecast!
