Weekly Training Recap 2015: Week 3

Now that I have at least four races I am training for, I think it will be helpful for me to go back to posting my weekly workouts here on the blog. It will help me hold myself accountable as I go forward. I have added a lot of distance since having Emma Kate, but my times are not where I thought they would be almost four months postpartum, so I need some accountability! I get in a trap of getting the miles in but they are “junk miles” a lot of times.

Races planned:

RnR New Orleans

rnDisney Princess Half Marathon

LA marathon

Crescent City Classic 10k

ccc30

This is what I did last week:

Sunday: Off

Monday: 3 mile treadmill run

Tuesday: 4 mile treadmill run

Wednesday: Off

Thursday: 4 miles on the treadmill

Friday: 35 minutes stationary bike, arm weights

Saturday: 7 mile taper run, Rock ‘n Roll New Orleans half marathon is next Sunday!

This next week will be toned down quite a bit since my race is on Sunday, but after that I have to get going again for my next three races!

  1. You’ve done a great job getting back in shape so quickly! My next half is glass slipper challenge. I’m so excited to get back to Disney and get back to the race where it all began 🙂

  2. My next race is Princess. I’m a little scared of adding more halfs this year because I had runners knee last year. I trained for my last half running just 3 days a week. I’m so scared to add another day! I’m not even sure how to go about it

    • I used to just run 3 days a week when training for halfs, but now I’m training for a full and am running 4-5 days a week. You can do it just stretch a lot!

    I have a 5k on the 31st then back to back races with Princess followed by a 10 miler the following weekend. Little nervous about those being so close.

  4. Great job! I got into the habit of recapping my weekly workouts during NYCM and I’m debating how to organize that again. The accountability really does help.

  5. Girl you’ve done amazing getting back out there after EK! And I can’t wait to see you this weekend!!!

  6. Great training week! Good luck improving your times 🙂

  7. Great job getting back at it! I’m amazed with how quickly you’ve increased your mileage since Emma Kate’s birth, and how great you’re looking!

    I’ve always found that documenting my weekly training helps keep me accountable. I think the accountability has also helped significantly with the progress that I’ve made with each training cycle.

  8. You look awesome! My next race will be the RnRNOLA half. I’m so excited. It will be my 2nd time to participate in this race Last year was my very first half ever so I’m looking to try and beat my last years time! 🙂 Good luck to you!

  9. Awesome job getting back in shape. Looking forward to seeing how your training is going.

    I’m training for the Irving Marathon in April! This is my first marathon and I can’t believe it’s coming so quickly.

  10. You’ve got a busy race schedule coming up, girl! My next race will actually be a local half marathon in February.

  11. See you soon!! 😀

  12. Your half marathon came up quick! I’m sure it will be great to have that under your belt after baby Emma. Yay!!
