Weekly Training Update: 6/3-6/9

If three was one theme that drove my workouts last week, it was, "Be smart."

My four-day stomach bug (tired of this, yet?) derailed my running for two weeks, and I logged less than 20 miles over the course of each. Feeling back to normal, my legs were ready to pound the pavement but I knew jumping into a 25-mile week could sideline me as well. I spent a lot of the week counting miles and creating complicated word problems. "If I run 5 miles on National Running Day and I ran 3 miles on Tuesday, how many carbs do I need to eat what's the longest my LSD run can be?" (The answer: 6 miles.)

Of course, in true Kim fashion, I did flub a bit by incorporating a Spartan WOD that left me running four days in a row - definitely not in line with "be smart." The whole workout, though, went against all intelligence: 1/2 mile run, 30 burpees, 1/2 mile run, 30 jumping lunges, 1/2 mile run, 30 squats, 1/2 mile run, 30 push-ups. See? Crazy.

I will say that I did luck out with a drop in humidity, and running in the early morning was crisp and refreshing.

The week:

Monday: Rest
Tuesday : 3.15 miles + Piloxing (taught) + BODYPUMP (taught)
Wednesday: 5 miles
Thursday: Spartan WOD
Friday: 3.25 miles + 3.1 miles
Saturday: BODYPUMP (taught)
Sunday: 6.2 miles


  1. Nice week back after the stomach bug! You look like you are FLYING in that photo. Go lady :)

  2. Glad you are feeling better. Your workout on Thursday sounded tough, but then so are you. You are running so fast you look like a blurr! Looks like you are getting close to your goal of 25 miles per week. Way to go!

  3. love the picture!! great job getting the miles in :)

  4. It's so annoying when your base goes down one week and you want to jump ahead but logic tells you no. UGH!!!!

  5. Glad you had a good week and are getting back on track after being sick! Sickness sucks, especially when you can't run!
