Weekly Recap, May 25 – 31

Monday, again?!  I’m so confused as to what day of the week it is still.  Having two extra days off last week really through me for a loop.  I actually spent most of Saturday watching movies and napping.  And I still don’t feel quite like I’m back up to speed.  But no time like the present for getting on track.

Weekly Recap - May 25 - 31 1

I only ran 3 times last week per my training schedule that I set up for myself.  I postponed my long run from Saturday to Sunday because I just didn’t have the motivation to get myself dressed and ready to run.  No regrets about it either.

Weekly Recap - May 25 - 31 2

Sunday’s long run was really tough.  Apparently having a crunch wrap supreme from Taco Bell on Saturday for dinner is not enough fuel to power a long run.  I only scheduled a 5 mile run but ended up running 5.5.  I was so far from home I still had to walk almost a full mile after I stopped running but I was just done at that point.  Note to self for next week:  Eat better, do better.

May Personal Record

I did set a new PR for myself last month.  I set a new 5k PR.  It’s not official since I didn’t set it during a race but it’s a good start.

May Goal Achieved

I also met my goal for 50 miles in the month of May.  It’s not much compared to what I was running back in October but the goal is to build slowly so I don’t injure myself.  I’m trying to stick to the “only increase by 10%” rule.  Goal for next month is 55 miles.

Do you set monthly mileage goals?

How was your training week?

    1. I’m looking forward to getting back up into that kind of mileage as the year goes on. I have about 2 months before training starts for my next half marathon. Once that starts the mileage should really start to increase.
