Training Recap: Week of November 23

Another week of running and training has come and gone. Another full week of runs (among other training items), has been completed, and I am still not 100% sold on a goal race. I was pretty much to the point where I though I could commit to the Glass City Half (like most Spring races) but then I got a postcard in the mail...
It's like it is mocking me..

But I am trying not to jump the gun. I don't want to drop a distance or anything when I get discouraged like I did last year.

So I am trying to hold off. I don't need to jump into training TOO hard until after the first of the year, and I want to be 100% on what I really want to do this spring before I pull the trigger and spend some money on a big race.

So instead for now, let's look at another week of un-goal-guided running and training.

Monday: 5 miles with 4x30s strides.
Tuesday: 50 minutes elliptical, full body strength workout
Wednesday: 6 miles, easy pace
Thursday: Thanksgiving Day Race (recap to come)
Friday: OFF
Saturday: OFF
Sunday: dog walking

On Monday after talking to Coach Jenn, she sent me my schedule. Unfortunately, she had 7 miles and strides on there, but I had already run 5 for the day. Oh well. Done. I have already moved on from that one.

How was you week in workouts? Did you Turkey Trot?


  1. I missed you at the Eastside turkey trot! But that's the one I did. Next year, we're probably doing the Cleveland 5 miler!
