Monday May 20 #

5 AM

Running 25:00 [3] 5.0 km (5:00 / km)
shoes: Cumulus20 Peach

Easy morning shake with the dogs. Besides my left shin being quite sore, this felt fine. Quads are mostly recovered. Rolled out the calves after and felt a lot better. Will just keep on rolling and icing when I'm home from work. Will keep recovery light and moving this week - then transition right into summer workouts. Trying to shake out the disappointing race.

(rest day)

Took one day off for recovery. Quads are sore and tight and as usual, my left shin and calf is sore and tight. Rolled and things felt a bit better.

Saturday May 18 #

6 AM

Running warm up/down 23:00 [3] 4.6 km (5:00 / km)
shoes: DynaFlyte Black

Warm up to the start line - was way further than I thought it was then had to stand around holding my place in the corral before starting.
7 AM

Running race 1:47:01 [5] 21.08 km (5:05 / km)
shoes: DynaFlyte Black

Popular Brooklyn Half Marathon

Notes: I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise that this was not a great race for me. I went into thinking that I could pull off a big PR despite preparing pretty poorly for this race. I anticipated that the first half of the course would be difficult, and I could cruise for the second half picking up the pace incrementally along the way. The opposite seemed to be true. Felt calm, cool, and relaxed through the park parts - it even felt easy. Made it through to about mile 9 and things just fell apart. Legs were lead, I was struggling with my breathing and mentally just trying every strategy to distract myself from the grind. That long, straight stretch was harder than expected mentally and physically. There was no shade along the course and eventually I just got to a point where I told myself to run 1 mile at a time and looked forward to dumping cold water over my head. Finished with nothing left in the tank, and just feeling really bad about the race.

Moving forward, I'm taking this week easy to recover and nurse any niggles. Next weekend we're moving apartments so the plan is to get back to training again starting next Monday. I know I need to be better about following a stricter plan. I know I need more consistency and strength work. I know I need to eat better and rest. I know what I need to do, and I'm going to do it. Because this race did NOT feel good and I don't want it to happen again.

Note
(rest day)

Was asked at the last minute to walk with the 2nd grade class for their field trip. Ended up walking 5 km to the Brooklyn bridge and back. I feel like things are just not lining up for me. Allergies are absolutely out of control - legs are sore and tired from walking on them all day. Wish I could just relax and do what I need to prepare for this race. Ugh...

Thursday May 16 #

5 AM

Running 18:00 [3] 3.6 km (5:00 / km)
shoes: Cumulus20 Peach

Easy morning jog with the pups. Shorter than usual because we ran them to the big field for off-leash hours, then just ran back home after.
7 PM

Running race 23:19 [3] 5.0 km (4:40 / km)
shoes: Cumulus20 Peach

10 WU
5 km Wall Street Race

Notes: The goal was to do this at HM pace just to see how things were feeling. GPS was way off and I had no idea where I was effort-wise. Just ran a little faster than tempo. Ended up feeling really fatigued with about 1 km to go, maybe ran too hard for a medium effort. Left shin is sore again so icing and monitoring.

Wednesday May 15 #

5 AM

Running 25:00 [3] 5.0 km (5:00 / km)
shoes: Cumulus20 Peach

Another easy morning shake out with the pups. Really beautiful morning and actually saw some sunlight!
5 PM

Running 31:00 [3] 6.2 km (5:00 / km)
shoes: Cumulus20 Peach

Park loop + 5 x strides

Notes: Went out just wanting to see how I was feeling and going from there. I've been battling a nasty cough since returning from Paris, which has me concerned for the upcoming race this weekend. This run *felt* hard and breathing was definitely a struggle. I stoped with about 2km left in my run to clear out my lungs a bit and felt better after that. Body is feeling good - just need to get rid of this cold!
