Race Week Ramble & Spartan Up!

I have a race planned for this weekend. I wanted to do the Shamrock Shuffle, but the YMCA St Paddys Day Run is a Team Beef race so I am choosing to do that instead.

Grrr both races being on the same day.

I was going to buy a green sparkle skirt for this race, but decided on some pajama bottoms instead.

Running - I have jumped into this training with both feet. The last 10 miler was on Saturday. I have been trying to follow my own version of the 50K plan I did this time last year. I thought my body really accepted the plan well and it fit with my schedule.

Monday - Rest
Tuesday - 4 miles
Wednesday - 6 miles
Thursday - 4 miles
Friday - Rest
Saturday - Long Run
Sunday - Recovery Run
