Weekly Roundup

I just got back from two easy recovery miles at an average pace of 9:38. The plan called for a 9:40 pace, but I figure anything within five seconds +/- is fine. I'm a little sore from Sunday's race (recap coming soon), but I managed fine and actually feel better now than before I ran. I also got in another 25 burpees for the FitFluential 1000 Burpee Challenge bringing my total to 100. It's not too late to join in the fun! I also wanted to mention that there is a Mizuno Twitter chat tonight with Mr. Seth Hasty (who may or may not have shoved Jen and I at the race on Sunday - heehee). My twitter handle is @mainemomrunning or you can follow me by clicking the twitter icon on the left sidebar of this blog. We'll be talking about getting started with running and three people will win a pair of Mizuno's new Wave Hitogami (I really, really, really, really want to try these!). For more info, click here.

So what did last week look like?

Monday - off
Tuesday - 3 easy miles at 9:41 pace
Wednesday - off
Thursday - 4 miles (1 mi WU, 2x1600 8:05-8:15 pace, 1 mi CD), 75 burpees
Friday - off
Saturday - off
Sunday - Mid-Winter Classic 10-Miler (8:18 pace)

It looks like we are going to be hit with some snow tonight and tomorrow, so I'll likely be hitting up a treadmill for my speed work on Thursday. I've also been playing around with the look of the blog...I'm looking for something more clean and organized. Still a work in progress! Otherwise have a great week and I hope to chat with you tonight!


  1. Nice updates to the blog!!! Oh jeez....I had blocked out how Seth pulled that football move on us during the race. I think he liked it too much. :)

  2. I like the look of the blog! I am so over winter. Mostly I am just over sub zero temps, I don't mind the snow so much, just the bad roads and super cold. Great job with the burpees!
