The One With Land Of Oz Training {Week 10}

This past week was fabulous; hands down it was probably the best racing weekend I have ever had! I don’t want to spoil the race reports that I’m planning to have up later this week so here’s just a small tidbit of what went down.

Week 9 (Feb 18-24)

BodyPump + 3 miles

Done (4 miles)
5 miles

Elliptical 45 min (3.6 miles)
3 miles

5.7 mile run

Cowtown 10K

Done NEW PR!
Cowtown Half Marathon


30+ miles

33 miles

Monday I took the day off since I had run Sunday.

Tuesday night was my usual BodyPump class and I really pushed myself that night! I’ve got a wedding dress people and I want my arms to look A-mazing! I also did 3 mile post BodyPump that were actually kind of hard.

Wednesday the weather was actually really rainy and windy and very cold and I hadn’t packed anything warm enough to wear outside so I headed to the gym but couldn’t fathom the idea of another treadmill run so I hoped on the elliptical. I couldn’t tell you the last time I workout out on the elliptical but I would like that think that it was good for me to mix it up a bit.

Thursday I went out for an easy run just to enjoy the run, I wasn’t sure if I would do 3 miles or try to get 5 in to make up from the day before and I wanted to go an easy pace. I think that wound up being pretty successful.

Then if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you know what an awesome racing weekend I had out at Cowtown. I will do separate posts for each race and will have those up at some point this week! I cannot wait to share with you guys just how awesome my sister did. I can definitely say hands down that this was one of my very favorite half marathons.

Today I am taking a complete rest day and I intend to fully enjoy it; my body is tired!

Here’s what the rest of this week looks like:

Week 10 (Feb 25-Mar 3)
BodyPump + 3 miles
6 miles
Little Rock Half Marathon
22+ miles

I’m taking a step back week since I’ve been running a lot lately. I also will be heading to Little Rock, AR this weekend for my bachelorette party and to run the Little Rock Half marathon! I am super excited for a fun girls weekend and one more race!

I hope you all have a great Monday!

Hey! I am a new follower! I love your blog... I am still a newbie runner- started last summer! I have done a 5k and a 5 miler and my next goal is a 10k and I hope to get my first half in this year too! I love that you did this run with your sister... I am trying to get mine into running as well, she has done a few of the fun 5ks with me. Its a great way to connect further as sisters/friends! :)
