|Busse Woods Trail - GORGEOUS!|
Last week was spent trying to both recover from the Oshkosh half but also figuring out how to transition into half marathon training for the 13.1 Chicago half marathon. I definitely noticed that my legs were tired when running. I had to stop much more frequently to rest (even for a few seconds) than I think I should but I suppose it's to be expected. I am hoping that this week will be much better and my legs will be feeling back to normal.
I didn't really follow a training plan last week as I was trying to listen to my body but here's what I did do:
|Steve & Naomi stretching|
Monday: Fat Bike Ride, 3.10 mi
Wednesday: Run, 3.20 mi @ 9:41/mi (had some watch problems... grr...)
Thursday: Fat Bike Ride, 9.01 mi
Friday: Run, 4 mi @ 9:49/mi
Saturday: Group Run, 6 mi @ 10:12/mi
Sunday: Bike Ride, 8.07 mi
Having missed the last two Team Challenge training sessions I had a lot of fun hanging out with my team mates. It also helped that it was a gorgeous sunny day and we actually WANTED to be outside after the run. The group had 8 miles on the plan but I wasn't definitely not feeling up to that distance so I put in 6 miles. I am hoping to be back on the plan, as prescribed, for next weekend.
Who else was running/racing this week?
