Weekly Workout Roundup – Feb. 3 – 9

This week saw my mileage get back to the range I like to keep it in. It also brought my random decision to complete the 30 day shred program again. I was questioning that decision when I found myself doing my day four 30 day shred workout at 9:30 at night on Saturday after having run 10 miles on trails. All I really wanted to do was go to bed, but I got it done.

Monday- 3 mile run on trails at Randolph Park. I was feeling really off during this run. I had a throbbing headache and felt very tired.

Tuesday- Rest.

Wednesday- AM: Day 1 of the 30 day shred, level 1 workout.

PM: 4 mile progression run on the treadmill. I didn’t feel that great, but it felt good to push the pace. Splits: 10:20 / 9:51 / 9:21 / 9:09

Thursday- 30 day shred, day 2 level 1 workout

Friday- 30 day shred, day 3 level 1 workout

Saturday- AM: 10 mile solo trail run at Pandapas Pond. This was my first double digit trail run and it was t-o-u-g-h. I definitely have some work to do to improve on trails, because right now I’m pretty slow. It was lightly snowing and just below freezing outside. I had 6 creek crossings total during this run, and was able to stay out of the water on all but two. I also discovered that it is very challenging to run on frozen mud that has foot prints and bike tire tracks in it. More on this run later this week.

PM: 30 day shred workout – day 4, level 1 at 9:30 PM. I was so worn out from the day and all I wanted to was go to bed, but I didn’t want to give up on my commitment 4 days into the 30 day regiment.

Sunday- AM: 4 mile run with Kim on the Dora Trail. My legs were a bit sore from Saturday’s trail run, but it felt good to get my legs moving and warm up my muscles. Once I got home I ate a quick breakfast/lunch and then completed my day 5, level 1 30 Day Shred workout.

Total Miles: 21.20 miles

  1. Wow! You’re getting some amazing trail runs in. You’re going to be a beast!!!

    1. I don’t know about a beast, but hopefully I’ll be able to handle trails!

  2. Your Saturday run pic looks like you were in Flagstaff. Right now I’d love to run on the trails, but I don’t care for the “unknown” that comes with it. Wherever the sun doesn’t shine – the snow doesn’t melt (well, it melts and becomes ice).
    GREAT runs this week!! Way to go with Jillian! A friend of mine who doesn’t do much in the working-out realm is doing the 30 day challenge. 🙂 I’m so happy for her!

    1. Very similar looking with the Pines 🙂 Ice is definitely no good!
