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).

  • Monday: 4.1 miles 35:57
  • Tuesday: 50 min bike ride
  • Wednesday: 3 naked miles
  • Thursday: 5 miles of fartlek 44:57
  • Friday: Easy bike and arm weights
  • Saturday: Proud to Run 10k 55:41
  • Sunday: 30 min walk/rest (just counting the walk for the 100 day challenge) 

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 🙂
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?
