Weekly Workout Roundup – June 9 – 15

This past week I took it easy leading up to Saturday’s Varmint 1/2 Marathon. I didn’t realize I had taken three rest days until I sat down to write this post. But it’s just the way things worked out this week, I guess.

Monday- Rest day.

Tuesday- Cross training: 30 Day Shred level 3 workout.

Wednesday- 2.5 mile run on some new trails in town. It was really fun exploring new trails and I’m looking forward to getting back there sometime soon!

Daper Mountain Bike Trails

Thursday- 3.5 mile run with Sven. I had planned on running on the road around our house, to do a short “tune up” on some hilly roads for Saturday’s race. Unfortunately there were some pretty mean storm clouds rolling in right when I got home from work.


A few minutes after I snapped that picture, the storms rolled in. It was a good thing I didn’t try and head out, because I would have been caught in a pretty mean thunderstorm!

Friday- Rest day.

Saturday- Varmint 1/2 Marathon race in Burkes Garden. We had a beautiful day for the race, but I had a bit of a tough day. Despite the tough race, I did enjoy getting to run through the Garden for the third year in a row!

Full recap on Wednesday.

Sunday- Rest day. My legs, especially my calves and quads, were very sore from the race. My shoulders were also really sore when I woke up, which I’m guessing is from all of the driving I did Saturday afternoon (a total of 6 hours, driving to a friend’s wedding and back after the race).

Total Miles: 19 miles

  1. Sorry you had a rough day at Varmint! I’m also a little sad we missed it this year 🙁 It’s a very cool race.
    Hope you’re feeling a little more recovered from all your running and driving today.

    1. It’s too bad y’all couldn’t make it out! The weather was pretty good, especially for June.

  2. I’m back! I just got an email that you posted so it looks like we’re up and running smoothly! 🙂

    Sorry your half didn’t go as well as planned. I’m a little sad we didn’t run it especially since the weather was so perfect!
