Weekly Training Update {7/27/15 - 8/2/15}

It's official. I'm training. With a legit plan. OK. I take the legit part back. It's a mish-mash plan that I made myself to get ready for the Bourbon Chase.

The goal of said plan is to increase my mileage so that I can run 15 miles over 30 hours without hurting myself or repeat a litany of curse words as I tackle the crazy hills. Solid goals, I think.

The basics: One long run; one workout, alternating between hills and intervals; one easy run with strides; one plain-old easy run.

Basics plus: It's a half marathon plan that I modified to fit my base fitness. It's also race specific in that every third long run will be a double, with the mileage split between a longer morning run and a 3-miler in the afternoon.

I had my first workout on Tuesday – 4 x 400s – or four rounds of quarter-mile hauling butt and a quarter-mile slogging. I haven't figured out how (or if) laps work on the Soleus but my miles with the repeats were post-baby fast, and I went under 9 minutes for the first time.

Another first for the week? Hitting 20 miles. #toolegittoquit #heyhey
