Weekly Wrap #24 5/9-5/15

Good morning!

I thought I’d start off by sharing a few photos from last week.

We’re a couple of weeks into Parker’s Mini T-Ball season. He seems to be enjoying it and likes the new friends that he is making!

The weather was gorgeous for the majority of the week, so we took advantage and spent as much time as possible outside. Tuesday night we spent some time at the park and took the kids for ice cream after.

Travis and I ran a local 5K Saturday morning. We missed the rain and ended up having the perfect morning to run. Travis took first overall!

Here are our workouts from the week:

Travis: It was a repetitive week for me with a lot of 8 mile runs. On Saturday, I ran my final tune-up race prior to the Buffalo Marathon at a local 5K event. It was a good morning to run and I was able to finish first place overall. I was way off my PR pace, but I was happy with my speed, how I felt and of course the outcome. It’s been a long week with not a lot of sleep on my end and unfortunately, I start a 10-day stretch of straight work today.  I’m officially starting my two week taper today as well and only have one double digit run left this training cycle – a 10 mile run next weekend. I’m really looking forward to another race weekend with the MRS. and I can now officially begin stalking the weather.

Monday: 8 miles @ 8:16 pace

Tuesday: 8 miles

1 mi. warm up; 6 x 1 mi. @ 6:15 pace; 1 mi. cool down

Wednesday: 6 miles @ 8:05 pace

Thursday: 8 miles @ 7:28 pace

Friday: Rest Day

Saturday: (AM) Lady Pirate Scuttle 5K – 3.27 miles @ 6:17 pace

(PM) 9 miles @ 8:12 pace

Sunday: 8 miles @ 8:30 pace

Total Weekly Mileage: 50.27 miles


Jen: So, the last thing you want three weeks before a goal race is shooting pain. I spent the majority of the week babying my right leg to make sure it wasn’t anything serious. A couple of rest days and a few more super easy days and it would appear that all is well (fingers crossed). I was able to run with no pain for the 5K yesterday (due to the pain from earlier in the week I didn’t ‘race’ the race) and my long run today felt fantastic. I’m planning on keeping up with the extra foam rolling and stick work to keep everything loose leading up to the race.

Monday: Off

Tuesday: Walked 30 minutes to test for pain

Wednesday: Walked 20 minutes, ran one mile, walked 20 minutes

Thursday: Walked 15 minutes, ran two miles, walked 10 minutes

Friday: Rest Day

Saturday: 3.3 miles (Lady Pirate Scuttle 5K)

Sunday: 10 miles

Total Weekly Mileage: 16.3 miles

    Travis- good job on your runs. Your paces are so impressive! 1st overall…way to go!! I hope your 10 day straight of work isn’t as bad as it sounds 🙁

    Jen- uuugh, I hope you continue to feel better. Sounds like you are doing all the right things for it. Take care and don’t push it. Good luck.

    I love watching the little kids play T-ball! Your kids are adorable in that park picture! Congrats Travis on your first place finish. I can only dream of those paces. I hope by working 10 straight days, you’ll get a few off before the marathon. Jen, I hope you leg continues to improve. It sounds like what you’ve been doing is working well. Enjoy taper time. Thanks for linking up with us!

    Glad your son is enjoying t-ball. I’m sure it is fun to watch him play. Congrats Travis on your incredible 5K time and 1st place finish! Hope Jen’s leg continue to improve.
