Returning to action week 2 – Weekly Recap

Maybe, I’m getting ahead of myself, but I feel like I’m almost back to my running shape before I took a 3 week break. It only took about 10 days to return to my old running habits and familiarity.

Monday – Rest – I was actually limping a bit after the Cambridge 5k. My left knee swelled up a bit from the beating of the final mile. Luckily, everything was back to normal by Tuesday.

Tuesday – 6.5 Miles
Incline 3, 54 minutes for an average pace of 8:19 or so. I’ll take it. Best part, my knee didn’t bother me.

Wednesday – 11.1 Miles
I returned to double runs. 8 miles after work and 3.1 before work. 7:20 pace on the homemill for the 5K, 7:51 pace for the 8 miler on incline 2 on the workmill.

Thursday – 7 Miles
About an hour of running, incline 3, 8:34 pace. I guess, the double duty runs from Wednesday made me more tired than I would admit.

Friday – 4 Miles
Had very little free time, 7:30 pace on incline 2 at the workmill.

Saturday – 15.1 Miles

13.1 Beautiful miles outside in the snow. Yea, I spent my whole morning avoiding my run and by the time it reached to 2, it started to snow and I was finally out of excuses to avoid my run. I did the final 2 miles on the treadmill because the snow was starting to stick and it was getting a little too icy for me. It was 15 degrees, but besides my hands, the rest of me was never cold.

Rocking the snow stache’

Sunday – 6.5 Miles
It was a little too icy for me to run outside, so I rejoined my Hulu Plus membership and caught up on weeks of Glee. 49 minutes of so to run 6.5 miles at a 7:30 pace or so.

    1. When it was snowing no, the ground didn’t get slippery until the snow started to stick more and then I went inside. I usually try to run around ice patches and run on fresh snow or packed none icy snow. Also avoid hillier routes. There’s one icy bridge I run by that I go very slowly on.
