Week 5 Recap

28 Jun

This half-marathon is creeping up faster and faster. Oh and apparently June is almost over? So glad the weather in Chicago JUST decided to be nice.

This past week I really wanted to run 20 miles. I didn’t quite hit that but I did run 4 out of 6 days so that was a great success, I like you (thats my Borat impression).

Weekly total: 18.3 miles

Not exactly the 20 I was hoping for but close enough!


My plan for this week is a little messed up because I am flying to Nashville early Saturday morning for the holiday weekend. As of right now the goal is

  • Monday: 5 mile run (Check! It was slow but I did it)
  • Tuesday: Insanity or bike ride
  • Wednesday: 5-6 miles with some sort of speed work
  • Thursday: Elliptical or bike ride
  • Friday: 9-10 miles long
  • Saturday-Sunday: do my 30 minutes for the 100 day challenge in some legit way thats not just lifting a drink from the table to my mouth πŸ™‚
If you are a runner how many days a week do you run?
What’s your suggestions for fitting in exercise on a weekend vacation focused around partying?Β

    Nice week! I usually run 5 days/week with two cross training days and throw a rest day in here and there. haha, your other question is a tough one. And I think it involves sacrificing some sleep if you want to get in some runs and still get your partying on. I’m not a huge partier, so I usually just turn in a little earlier than everyone else and get my sweat on in the a.m. If you’re drinking, hydrating is definitely key too!

    I usually run every other day. I like to constantly change up the workout, and not running every day makes it a little more enjoyable. πŸ™‚
